Our mission is to develop musical talent of each individual
by stimulating creativity, passion, joy, and self-discovery.
Welcome to the Connecticut Virtuosi
The Academy was funded in 2009 as an educational initiative of the Connecticut Virtuosi Chamber Orchestra. Today, at our two locations: at First Presbyterian Church in Hartford, and St. James Episcopal in Farmington, we offer individual lessons, group classes, and practical training with the CT Virtuosi Chamber Orchestra for players that are pursuing music as their passion, or as a primary career.
Need-based scholarships are available for students who are residents of Hartford and New Britain, Connecticut.
To young and talented musicians, school gives an opportunity to develop at a professional level through instrumental studies, chamber music sessions, public performances. The programming includes weekly lessons, chamber music coaching, master classes with renowned visiting artists. We offer lessons in violin, viola, cello, double bass, piano, voice and chamber music ensembles. Our students have been receiving high scores in many Regional and All-State auditions.
Have Fun Learning!
