  • Where the Virtual becomes Actual

    A Message from the Music Director

    Dear Friends,

    I am excited to announce the second year of our InterHarmony International School of Music where the virtual becomes actual.

    After concertizing as a soloist and a chamber musician most of my life, and directing international festivals for almost 25 years, the creation of this international institution seems to the most natural and efficient way help young aspiring musicians,

    those who want to become aspiring musicians, and those who love music, pursue their dreams. I have always wanted to create a school where students learn how to play in the best possible way: something to the very point, a place that does not depend on age or level, where participants learn authentic skills, not just something generalized with empty big words describing music without depth and quality.


    The program at the InterHarmony International School of Music provides performance opportunities for the students, participation in numerous showcases and masterclasses with world-renowned faculty and guest soloists with whom they could meet and study virtually, and then have the possibility meet actually during our summer European festivals if they wish to apply.

    IISM’s objective is to cultivate the real musician at heart, starting at any age in student’s life, and surrounding them with everything necessary to attain that. Besides private lessons, IISM emphasizes classes and actually listening to music in order to hone in performance skills, such as music theory, solfege, music history, and a variety o fascinating topics.

    Many students have wanted to return to in-person lessons after studying online. However, after realizing that the experience is the same in-person as online, these students return to online learning to save on countless hours of unnecessary travel. The opportunity to study with professors in different parts of the world is important to them.

    No matter what life brings, IISM strives for students to retain a love for music that will bring quality to their life.

    The success of the last two semesters, our wonderful Artist Faculty, personal attention to students, and thoughtfully designed programs.

    Join us where the virtual becomes actual.

    Warm regards,

    Music Director and Founder
    InterHarmony International School of Music

    InterHarmony International School of Music - Online

    Violin Master Class

    Designed by the organizers of InterHarmony International Music Festival, InterHarmony International School of Music offers intensive classical music instruction on all instruments in a year-round program, creating the possibility for students to study with the most renowned performers and scholars from around the globe without the trouble of travel.

    IISM’s professors teach at prestigious universities around the world, are members of acclaimed orchestras, soloists, and chamber musicians. They offer students global exposure to instruction not always available in their local area.

    Group shot of music students at InterHarmony International Music FestivalParticipants of the InterHarmony International School of Music will be automatically accepted to the InterHarmony International Music Festivals in Italy and Germany if they wish to apply. Virtual students will have the opportunity to meet professors in person at the InterHarmony International music festival, where those who studied virtually will study actually. Students of IISM can gain access to masterclasses and workshops provided by the IISM faculty.

    IISM provides an intensive musical experience each week without students or parents needing to leave the comfort and safety of their home. With many physical precollege and continuing education programs in an active society, students and parents take hours out of their week commuting to extracurricular activities, need to stay on location for several hours, before commuting back home again. InterHarmony International School of Music allows parents and participants a break from getting in the car or on a train one more time, and provides comparable if not better musical instruction for students.

    • The study of music is a high artistic pursuit, whether participants envision their studies leading to a future musical career, a hobby, or to become a future audience member. Even if they do not want to become a seasoned professional performer, everyone deserves the experience of studying music seriously and intensively.

      “If you’re young, it doesn’t mean you’re not advanced. If you’ve never played, it doesn’t mean you cannot play. If you’re a beginner, it doesn’t mean you cannot become a star.” ~ Misha Quint, Cellist and Music Director of InterHarmony International School of Music
