Artistic & Executive Director

Dear Future Students,

It is important to me that the Academy should continue to reinvent itself every year, offering you the best through innovative and stimulating workshops and master classes. Some very distinguished professors will be returning to us in 2018, and we will be welcoming a number of prominent, new teachers. Four workshops have also been added to the schedule. 

As an Artistic Director, and as a concert pianist, I believe in letting talent shine. I want to do what I can to help my future colleagues achieve professional success. Back for a third year, the Orford Music Award offers a genuine springboard for young musicians with bright futures, as well as prestigious prizes for the finalists.

I look forward to welcoming you to the 2018 Academy!

Spread the word and
lower your tuition fees!

Encourage your friends to apply to the 2018 Academy and you could be eligible for a $200 discount on your tuition fees! Make sure your friends tell us you referred them by writing your full name in the appropriate box on their application form. The ten students who refer the highest number of applicants will each receive $200 towards their own stay at Orford next summer.
