For a city so small it is quite surprising to learn that Strasbourg has no fewer than 17 music schools within it’s boundaries. So if you, or your children (on Wednesdays for example), would like to learn an instrument, sing in a choir, play in an orchestra or simply study the art-form then you’re spoiled for choice. Some are specialist schools, others are colocated within the quartiers socio-culturel centres but all offer one-to-one teaching as well as group classes.
With inscriptions starting next week, right now is the best time to start considering which one is right for you. Pricing is usually per trimestre so remember to times by three to get the annual cost. Note that whichever course you decide to take you will usually have to pay an annual membership fee to the school on top of your course fees.
Now, I have no idea which ones are good or bad or whatever, so if you have any knowledge in this area – please feel free to share it below in the comments form.
