Music studies consist of weekly private lessons, ensemble lessons and music theory lessons. The application period for studies beginning in autumn is 2 May – 6 June, and in spring is 5 November – 5 December.

About the studies

Places are filled in order of registration. Vocalists will be called in for a small audition and they will be notified about the time by email.

New students will be notified about their acceptance by email. In the event that we are not able to offer a place from the beginning of the autumn term, we will notify the applicant by email. Those applicants will also be automatically added to the waiting list and we will contact them whenever there are cancellations.

On acceptance, the student will receive a confirmation letter notifying of the place and time of the music lessons. The teacher will come meet the student in the school lobby or near the caretaker’s booth before the first lesson.

Please note that it is recommendable to consult your teacher before purchasing an instrument.

Additional information

About term fees

Due dates for term fees: autumn term 31 August and spring term 31 January.

Playing in string orchestras and rhythm music bands, theoretical studies in music theory, studies in music technology and singing in the choir are considered group instruction. Studies in these subjects are included in the term fee for students of elementary and music institute level soloist subjects.

Lessons in soloist subjects are given as private instruction.

If a student should terminate the studies during the term, the term fee is nonetheless charged for the full term. However, if the termination is due to an illness, moving out of town or another similar cause, the student can apply for a discount from the headmaster.

Avonia Music Institute has a collection agreement with Intrum Justitia.
