A visit to the department:

Every year around end of April and beginning of May there is an Open Day at the school. You are more than welcome to come by and see the school and meet teachers and students. It is also possible to visit the school during the year, but only by appointment (please telephone).

Next Open Day: 6 may 2018



The musical instrument making department falls under secondary education; therefore, there is no registration fee. However, to compensate administrational costs a minimum bill of 200 € will be charged to every student.  In addition to this, students are expected to have their own set of tools (+/- 300€)

Instruments made in the school can be acquired by paying the price of the wood used for them. Violins made in the 1st year can not be acquired.

Students will also be expected to take part to one study trip abroad that is organised every 3 years.
