Ebeli is the pop and jazz department of EMO, the Espoo Music Institute. The school aims at fostering well-rounded and diverse musical skills in its students aging between 15 to 25 years, supported by a teaching staff comprised of the very best local talent.
The school was founded in 1996 by Martti “Mape” Lappalainen, who also founded April Jazz. Since then many of today’s professional jazz musicians have started their studies at Ebeli. Every spring Ebeli’s students perform at April Jazz in their own concert.
