Music School

UWCM Music school provides professional, practical, and theoretical music instruction in English and other available languages contributing to the development of specific musical abilities including: music appreciation, music literacy, technique and performance skills, as well as coordination, concentration, responsibility, confidence, and creativity. The UWCM Music School encourages our students to explore new horizons through the language of music, celebrate diversity, and sharing their artistry with the international community at various open performances, events, and workshops.

Lessons are open to Primary and Secondary students, UWCM staff members, and parents. Lessons take place on campus, after school, Monday through Friday.

Registration


For many of the courses there are only a limited amount of places available. Students will be placed according to the order of registration. If a course is full your son/daughter can be placed on a waiting list. The costs for an individual lesson are € 18,00 per lesson (30 minutes) for students from UWC Maastricht. The lesson fee for parents, teachers and students older than 21 are € 21,75 per lesson (30 minutes) plus  21% VAT. The price for group lessons is € 7,50 per student per lesson (45 minutes). Payment should be done before taking the lessons.

If your son/daughter would like to follow music lessons at the UWCM Music School please register by filling out the registration form. Once your registration is received and approved by the coordinator, the instrumental teacher will contact you to schedule the lesson day and time. 

In order to start the course a €25,00 euro registration fee is requiered for all new and returning families (after having completed the registration process an invoice will be sent). The registration fee supports the Music School in covering costs such as lesson materials, photo copies, security during recitals, etc.
  
Termination of lessons can only take place in agreement with the instrumental teacher and with a prior notice of 2 months. If it is impossible for a student to attend a private instrumental lesson, at least 24 hours advance notice must be given to the instrumental teacher directly. In the exceptional case of an unavoidable absence, the parent must formally apply for a make up lesson with the teacher.
