What We Do

The Academy is currently comprised of three full scholarship, one-week long institutes; Wabass Institute, Soundboard Institute, Resonance Institute


Wabass Institute

continues to inspire the next generation of double bassists fostering an inclusive, supportive environment where ideas are freely shared from teacher to student and vice versa. As the Institute approaches season 14, Wabass alumni are worldwide continuing to spread the “sharing of knowledge.” With faculty Eric Larson, Hal Robinson, and Ranaan Meyer.


Soundboard Institute

inspires the next generation of pianists by focusing on the free flow of ideas from student to teacher to peers in a collaborative environment we call "the sharing of knowledge".  Built upon the principle that we should view and encourage our peers as colleagues as opposed to competitors keeping musicianship and artistry at the forefront of our ideals. With faculty Matti Raekallio and Peter Dugan.


Resonance Institute

inspires the next generation of versatile musicians. Resonance gives unconventional musicians and already formed groups an opportunity to learn from one another alongside the world renowned faculty, to push their artistry forward while also addressing the entrepreneurial facet of the music industry.
