Our Vision

IEMA aims to nurture every student in a vibrant and joyous atmosphere, as well as raising them to the best of their abilities. No matter what their ages, a beginner or an advanced player, they all can make music together and share with the others. In addition to developing their interests in music, we are also dedicated to build up their self accomplishment and self discipline as the right attitude towards learning music plays a crucial role in this lifelong learning.

Our Story

IEMA is co-founded by three musicians, a Violist, a cellist and a pianist. They believe music is a gift to every humankind and it serves as a language which can communicate and interact with people from all walks of life.

As Ensemble music becomes more and more popular, they decided to integrate it into one of the formal trainings in music. They believe ensemble music is not a privilege of advanced and mature players, but also an inevitable elements for young and elementary students to explore music.
