Music School

The UWCM Music School offers individual and/or group lessons to students and the school community, helping and guiding them to develop their skills and artistry in music, and create possibilities to share these talents with the international community. Lessons are open to Primary and Secondary students, UWCM staff members, and parents. Lessons take place on campus, after school, Monday through Friday from 15:30-18:30. All music teachers are highly qualified with years of experience as teachers and performers. We invite you to join our music community and find the artist in you.


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 € 17,50 per lesson (30 minutes) for students from UWC Maastricht. The lesson fee for parents, teachers and students older than 21 are €19,00 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 €20,00 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.
