Cleveland International Piano Competition and Institute for Young Artists

What Makes the Cleveland International Piano Institute Unique?

 1. Learn from the Best: Both Faculty and Peers

Our “peers” have no rivals. In addition to high-level faculty from CIM and abroad and visiting artists, participants in the Cleveland International Piano Institute (CIPI) will train with finalists in the world-renowned Cleveland International Piano Competition for Young Artists. They’ll learn from some of the finest international pianists in their age groups, including Global Scholars of the Lang Lang Foundation.

 2. Develop your Musical Voice

Pianists are more than technicians. They’re artists. That’s why the CIPI trains the whole musician, encouraging participants to explore their creativity and grow as artists, all under the eyes of leaders in the field.

 3. A true pre-collegiate experience

The CIPI offers a glimpse of life as a student at the Cleveland Institute of Music, one of the most highly regarded Conservatories of Music and home to two of the most advanced pre-college musical training tracks: CIM’s Academy and Young Artist Program. Home to state-of-the-art facilities fostering the future of classical music, CIM is located in Cleveland’s beautiful University Circle, within walking distance of Severance Music Center (home of The Cleveland Orchestra), the Cleveland Museum of Art, Case Western Reserve University, and numerous other world-class institutions.
