Nestled in the river bluffs overlooking Kansas City, MO, a musical enclave is quietly producing some of the best classical musicians in the world. Based on the Classic European Apprenticeship Model, the Park International Center for Music is transforming talented protégés in piano, violin, viola and cello into world-class performers.
Our internationally renowned instructors prepare students not only for the rarefied air of top international competition, but also in the life skills needed to thrive in their chosen profession.
No other American music program provides this intensive European protégé/master training.
