INTERNATIONAL EXCHANGE IN THE LAND OF MUSIC
We invite students and music lovers to take the opportunity to get experience and knowledge about Austrian Music and Culture by showing this in a personal performance at our Austrian Music Education. Studying Austrian music and culture should be intercultural learning, which considers the engagement with the own culture, traditions and actual habits. In this way, this kind of education should be open to an international exchange between different cultures, especially between East Asia and Europe.
“Tradition is the spreading of fire and not the veneration of ashes.”
– Gustav Mahler.

A special focus is given to music and its related arts. According to the general educational mission the music school lessons play an important role in transmitting artistically features and skills. Moreover this has a positive impact on the personal development of the students.
4.: ADDITIONAL ACTIVITIES
MUSIC ENCOUNTER ON MUSIC RELATED ARTS
Music schools are places of encounters and involvement with all forms of art. Therefore, music schools should provide perfect frameworks to give space. Space in terms of open, colourful and adequately equipped rooms enable an encounter with music and its related arts and the chance to gain multi-layered, artistically and pedagogically experiences.
SOCIAL DEVELOPMENT AND CULTURAL EDUCATION
Music schools are places of cultural encounters for children and young adults. They can provide social development and cultural, educational spaces for adults as well. Music schools offer the possibility of deepening education musically for all sections of the population and therefore fulfil the mission of a widespread impact. Innovative models and a program for highly talented music students especially prepare gifted students for the attendance of higher educational establishments. Furthermore, they build a solid basis for the supply of young professionals in Austria and South Tyrol. The increased significance, the societal relevance and the recognition within the population are results of the high artistic and pedagogically competencies of music schools and their function as a cultural body with sustainable effects in communities and towns.
6.: GROUP SPIRIT
MUSIC IS TEAMBUILDING
Music school work is teamwork. All music school teachers do their best in working together to achieve the educational objectives. In addition, the various educational services offered and several cultural activities enable cross-linked learning.
TAKE PART IN THE CULTURAL PERFOMANCES AND CONCERTS
Music schools are a shaping force in the cultural and educational network.
8.: SPECIALIZED TEAM
LEARN FROM HIGHLY QUALIFIED TEACHERS
Teachers lead their students to an independent dealing with music. Enthusiasm and commitment are essential features of every artistic activity and, therefore, learning and teaching music.
Teachers and students together organise the way to achieve the students’ educational goals. They are using different forms and methods of learning to support a holistic way of learning, hence why music school lessons have a sustainable impact on the personal development process of the students. Seriousness and determination play an important role when learning how to play a musical instrument.
Music schools see the parents of the students as supportive partners who integrate with the educational process.
