PYPA introduces an exclusive Young Virtuosi Program, with the purpose of supporting PYPA prizewinner laureates and alumni as they continuously strive for excellence in their musical education and careers.
The Young Virtuosi Program covers monthly master classes, career workshops, career guidance, concert arrangements and press support. The program is designed to offer a package of career support not available to music students at schools and conservatories.
There is no other entity that offers this kind of academy / pre-management service for cohorts of young pianists, prior to their winning major piano competitions and auditions. We believe it is never too early to begin this quest!
