Mentoring the Next Generation of Musical Talent

LEAD! Foundation’s mission is to support the emerging careers of the next generation of young conductors. We take a holistic view on mentorship and teaching, focussing not only on developing musical competence and leadership skills, but also on giving advice on how the professional music world actually runs.

Working with internationally renowned mentors, we also coach soloists, concertmasters and orchestra principals on how to communicate effectively, both with each other and with conductors, and how to master the very unique skills required of them.

LEAD! is directed by leading Finnish conductor Jukka-Pekka Saraste and provides teaching through the LEAD! Foundation Academy.

We also work closely with a wide range of musical institutions, including conservatories, orchestras and festivals.

We build on the long-standing teaching traditions of musical mentors of the very highest level, supported by an experienced organisational team.
