Welcome to The Helsinki Conservatory of Music
Since its foundation in 1922 the Helsinki Conservatory of Music has been one of the leading conservatories in Finland. Together with the Metropolia Polytechnic Department of Music we form a vibrant centre of music in the heart of the capital city. A significant number of the top Finnish professionals of music (soloists of orchestras, pedagogues) have studied at the Helsinki Conservatory of Music. The student body comprises 70 students enrolled in vocational music studies and about 1000 students in basic education. The Conservatory employs about 100 distinguished pedagogues and performers.
