Tasks and structure of the music and art school

The music and art school has the task of introducing children, young people and adults to the arts and encouraging them to deal with the arts on their own.
With qualified specialist tuition, she wants to lay the foundation for a lifelong occupation with the arts and give her students opportunities for artistic work beyond the framework of the music and art school.
As part of the education of the students in the music and art school, it is therefore important to attend projects and supplementary subjects in addition to the main subject, in which the knowledge and skills gained are used, expanded and deepened.
An important task of the intensive music and art school work is the special promotion of particularly talented students, including preparation for a professional degree.

The lessons of the music and art school are divided into four levels according to the structure plan of the Association of German Music Schools (VdM).

This structure plan is binding for all music and art schools of the VdM. The curricula are based on it, which formulate the learning objectives of teaching at music and art schools as framework curricula and thus give the teachers an orientation without restricting the freedom of the method.
In principle, every student should first complete the basic level (orientation level).
However, entry is possible at any age. In order to deepen the content imparted in the basic level (orientation level), the main subject teaching of the lower level (basic level) is accompanied by projects from the start.
