The AIMC aims to foster the artistic development of young and professional musicians in the field of musical interpretation. It also encourages the participation of music educators and promotes music education and self-improvement through participation in competitions. We believe that the competition will bring benefits to the contestants and their instructors, and it will also provide them with an international platform to present their talents and help them build confidence and gain recognition worldwide.

The competition is open to musicians, music students and music lovers of any nationality and age from all over the world. The contest is divided into musical categories such as piano, strings, wind, vocal and chamber music. Each instrument will be judged in groups based on the age of the contestants.

Our objective is to find musical artists with  strong personality, artistic charisma and a special musical sensitivity. Through the awards we intend to motivate them and help them develop international careers.

We firmly believe that in addition to strict training and natural talents, they can also improve their artistic personality and stage personality through participating in the contest.

The purpose of AIMC is to find talented musical performers who have reached a professional level and help them become part of the international classical music scene.
