At PIANO ACADEMIE, we celebrate not just learning, but excellence. Since 2018, we’ve been offering our young pianists the chance to take part in international competitions, enabling them to amplify their talents on a global stage.
This initiative is not intended to turn our students into competition machines, but rather to give them the opportunity to progress faster and work more intensively, if they are willing and able.
In 2018, we trained our first group of six children aged between 6 and 8, and their progress over a year of preparation has been astounding. While winning awards is not our primary goal, we are extremely proud of our students’ achievements.
Take Gabrielle, for example, who won first prize at the prestigious London International Competition. Or our three young prodigies who took part in the Milan International Competition.
Despite the cancellation of competitions during the Covid crisis, our students have continued to progress and excel. In 2020-2021, PIANO ACADEMIE is the only French school to feature in the list of winners of the competitions presented, attesting to the high level of competence of our students.
Take a look at the videos we’ve posted of our students and marvel at their talent. And take a look at the videos of the competition winners, which illustrate the seriousness of the competitions and the path to excellence.
And 2023 is already promising: we’ve won prizes in Munich, New York and Italy, and over 40 students joined our intensive class this year.
Train with us at PIANO ACADEMIE and open up the world of music to your children. Who knows, they could be the next to shine on the international scene!
