International School of Music Finland





ISM Finland is an English speaking music school offering private and group music lessons to students of all ages and abilities. Established in 2015, ISM Finland currently teaches over 250 students in 17 languages at 17 locations in and around Helsinki as well as at our private studio in Hietalahdenkatu.

ISM does not have entrance examinations as we are an inclusive music school and believe that music is for everyone.

In addition to private and group instrumental tuition, ISM Finland also has an extensive Early Childhood Music Education program and we offer a variety of music groups tailored for children under 8 years old.
