Our Story

The International Ensemble Music Academy (IEMA) was born out of the shared vision of two accomplished musicians – a violist and a pianist. They firmly believe that music is a universal gift, a language that transcends borders and connects people from all walks of life.                                                            

 Recognizing the growing popularity of ensemble music, they decided to  integrate it into one of the formal music trainings.  They believe ensemble music is not a privilege of advanced and mature players, but also an inevitable element for young and elementary students to explore music.
