M.int Academy (Music International Academy) is a music training center in Hong Kong that aims to build an inclusive community fostering all-round classical music training.


Our goal is to revolutionize the classical music education landscape in Hong Kong. At M.int Academy, we are creating a nurturing environment that cultivates a genuine passion for classical music. We provide a wide range of classes, including early childhood music classes, one-on-one music lessons, theory and aural classes. While we are focused on students aged 15 and under, our doors are open to musicians of all ages. Our mission is to be the first music training center in Hong Kong to take a differentiated approach to classical music instruction. Unlike other music training centers in the city, we provide students access to exceptional talent from around the world. At the helm of a dynamic community that promotes a love for classical music, our instructors provide students with the teaching, guidance and avenues to explore their interests and excel.


M.int Academy is proud to be the first premium music training center in Hong Kong that recruits staff exclusively from top conservatories and universities around the world – and we are always looking to add young, innovative talent to our team of highly-qualified international music instructors, who possess excellent communication skills and a love for teaching.


Joining M.int Academy means that you will have the chance to be part of a start-up that invests heavily in both the professional and personal development of our instructors.
