Park ICM Unveils New Campaign Aimed at Helping to Save Its Fleet of Pianos

Steinway describes their pianos as “the peerless instruments of uncompromising expression.” We couldn’t agree more which is why Park ICM became an “All-Steinway School.” But even the finest pianos in the world take a beating when you’re training the finest pianists in  the world. Park ICM students deserve the best quality pianos possible. Plus, we want to ensure that we can attract the highest-level student protégés year-after-year. Will you join us in caring for these amazing instruments?

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.
