We are three professional working women based in Vienna, Austria who have many years of experience in the music education world.  We know what it is like to choose a professional music career and study in a foreign country.  We recognize the importance of building a vast network of professionals, developing a familiarity with various musical institutions, and making contacts with professors for lessons.  Additionally, we know it is vital to find a good pianist and an excellent practice room or an apartment with practice facilities.  


Because of our many years of experience dealing with foreign students from all over the world, we are uniquely qualified to give advice on the requirements and expectations in regards to auditions, entrance exams, music theory, choosing the right repertoire, appropriate dress code, and many other issues that arise in the music industry.  We want to offer our guidance and support services to help students transition into a new and exciting chapter of their lives.
