On May 7, 2014, Her Majesty Queen Silvia of Sweden visited the Lilla Akademien in Stockholm.

According to the official website for Lilla Akademien the school:

“…[specializes] in classical music. Housed in a historic building in the centre of the city, it was founded in 1994 by a group of music teachers under the leadership of Nina Balabina.

The aim of the Lilla Akademien is to give its pupils a solid musical foundation, whether or not they choose to become professional musicians. Since the musical life of the school is intense, great care is taken to foster a joyful, rather than competitive, spirit among pupils. Priority is given to developing the artistic personality of each individual. Many different nationalities are represented among the students and staff and the school is proud of the atmosphere of tolerance and international understanding that this creates.”
