Soundboard Institute, a part of the Honeywell Arts Academy, aims to inspire the next generation of pianists by focusing on the free flow of ideas from student to teacher to peers in a collaborative environment we call "the sharing of knowledge." Built upon the principle that we should view and encourage our peers as colleagues as opposed to competitors keeping musicianship and artistry at the forefront of our ideals. All programs at the Honeywell Arts Academy focus on fostering the human spirit by performing within the community to use music as a means to connect and heal. With faculty Matti Raekallio and Peter Dugan.

To apply, artists must submit a standard application which requests information about how long they have been playing, their educational background, with whom they currently study, and a description as to why they play their instrument. Candidates must also submit an audition video.

Artists are selected based on their merit, passion, story, ability to work with a team, and overall potential. The administration, artistic director, and faculty assess the musicians through a process of 2 rounds: preliminaries and finals. Following this, they create an acceptance for the finalists and anywhere from 2 to 5 high level alternate selections in the case that one or two finalists are unable to attend.
