The International Ensemble Modern Academy (IEMA) was founded in 2003 as Ensemble Modern’s training centre, pursuing the goals of educating musicians and audiences about contemporary repertoire and identifying new forms of artistic and creative work today. IEMA offers various education formats for very different target groups: education projects, international master courses, the International Composition Seminar and the Master’s degree programme in Contemporary Music offered in cooperation with the Frankfurt am Main Academy of Music and the Performing Arts (HfMDK).
