Mission

Taipei Music Academy and Festival (TMAF)

As we enter the fourth season of TMAF, I cannot help but think about the impact this pandemic has had on this young festival. In 2020, we were one of the handful of festivals in the world performing to full houses. In 2021, we moved to San Francisco and kept all the curriculum and performances. This festival has weathered a lot and has grown stronger as a result. For 2022, we again have a faculty artist roster of the highest caliber. We will add enriching activities to make the festival memorable to all participants. Come and join us.

About TMAF

The Taipei Music Academy & Festival welcomes young musicians aged 15 to 30 who are interested in working with a world class faculty in an immersive and inspiring environment. The lovely campus of the National Taipei University of the Arts, situated on a mountainside overlooking Taipei, serves as our home.

Academy participants will choose either chamber music or chamber ensemble, as well as partake in the Festival Orchestra. Every musician will receive daily coaching in chamber music and chamber ensemble. For orchestra, faculty will play and coach alongside young musicians in every rehearsal and performance. Master classes are available to those interested in solo repertoire, as well as opportunities to build professional skills with our mock orchestra auditions and orchestral excerpt tutorials.
