Princess Galyani Vadhana Institute of Music (PGVIM)

Princess Galyani Vadhana Institute of Music, Thailand, is a unique conservatory of music with a contemporary approach to classical music. Initiated in 2007 as a royal project celebrating the occasion of the 84th birthday of Her Royal Highness Princess Galyani Vadhana Krom Luang Naradhiwas Rajanagarindra, the Princess has graciously given her name to the new endeavour: the Princess Galyani Vadhana Institute of Music, or PGVIM.

Following her royal vision to educate new audiences develop an international standard for Thai musicians, as well as to educate new audiences, the Institute aims to create platforms through our Education Populaire and Audience Development Projects for students, musicians, professionals and general audiences to exchange their musical experiences, make dialogues, and share their love of music together.

The Institute’s goal is to be a leading international conservatory of music, with our missions being 1) to support our young talents in their pursuit of musical excellence, 2) to promote a better understanding of music and expand the role of music within society, and 3) to develop new knowledge in music and interdisciplinary subjects. Our creatively designed curriculum and education populaire programs provide opportunities for students and the general public to learn the skills of music-making while developing their understanding of music as a tool for the advancement of mankind and for a harmonious society, within the contemporary context of the world.
