The Music Chapel is a private institution providing multi-year programs of musical study concentrating almost exclusively on excellence in performance. The programs are reserved for a very small number of exceptionally gifted young musicians, who wish to pursue a non-degree program. The school offers individually-tailored instruction to ensure that each student gets the music education that he or she needs.

“I hope to help open up gifted young musicians to the rich world of possible interpretations, young musicians who must learn this demanding task of the modern world: to continue the in-depth exploration of their art with the utmost interiority in a space whose temptations are often far removed from the genuine objectives of an artistic quest at the service of the great composers.” Louis Lortie, February 2016
