Jukka-Pekka co-founds LEAD!, which aims to develop musical leadership- and communication skills in young orchestra leaders. The organisation provides tailor-made mentorship schemes to help aspiring orchestra leaders to master the musical, social and communicative aspects of their role. There is also a related scheme for young conductors.

Through workshops, coaching sessions and discussions led by Jukka-Pekka and a team of mentors from leading international orchestras, the organisation aims to foster awareness of how an orchestra can perform to its full potential by encouraging the development of an individual’s personality and demonstrating the importance of individual contributions to a performance.

LEAD!’s collaborators include conservatories, orchestras and festivals. Its first project with Haute École de Musique de Lausanne (HEMU) will take place between 22 and 25 January 2018 in Lausanne.
