Overview

The Music program at Park University is like no other program in the United States. Our students are hand selected by our master faculty members because they have the talent, desire and drive to be transformed into the next generation of musical masters.

Faculty

When Stanislav Ioudenitch first started the Park International Center for Music, he began with a simple concept: Find incomparable musicians who are extraordinary teachers, and give them the time, tools, funding and dedication needed to transform exceptional students into masters themselves.

Simple idea, but difficult to execute.

Ioudenitch himself is an internationally recognized, Van Cliburn Gold Medal Award recipient so he has the connections to search the world for the right musicians to create his vision. Since then, he has assembled a team that shares his world class skills and his passion for teaching. Plus an exceptional support team that keeps things running smoothly so the artists can focus on their art.
