The Youth Piano Academy

The Youth Piano Academy, known in Finnish as Nuorten pianoakatemia, is a special training program for exceptionally talented teenagers. Ten youngsters from all across Finland meet five to six times a year, each time with different professors. The Youth Piano Academy also organizes workshops on different topics, including sight reading, practicing, the history of piano music, interpretation, and performing skills.  One of the festival artists, Antti Siirala, will teach the students of the Youth Piano Academy at the Kivijärvi hall. Welcome! The Youth Piano Academy is funded by the Finnish Cultural Foundation and the Jane and Aatos Erkko Foundation.
