‘Powerful sources of spiritual enrichment spring from music. We must spare no effort to have them opened for as many people as possible.’ – Zoltán Kodály

The Muziek als Vak course will again be offered the coming academic year – taking place on 8 Saturdays (1 every month) and study weekends in November and April.

Because of COVID-19 related government regulations, the study days in 2020 (September-December) will take place online. We will offer various webinars, lectures and classes, both with our own team of teachers, and with international guest teachers. From January 2021 onwards, we hope to offer live gatherings in the Royal Conservatoire in The Hague. This, of course, depends on regulations from the government, and can only happen in a way that is safe for all involved.

If you have any questions about the course, feel free to contact us!
