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 Guards Band 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.

A warm thank you! Wishing you all a refreshing summer! 

 The unprecedented COVID-19 spring is now behind us. It was a challenging time, but also gave us the possibility to learn many new things. Throughout these troubled times, music has been there to inspire us and to support us. I’d like to thank everyone at the Conservatory for their innovation, positivity and co-operation, and I wish a relaxing and refreshing summer for all!
