Introductory (Preparatory) Course at the Conservatory

Not every musician who is ready for the entrance examination has already finished secondary education. And not every musician having finished secondary education and considering a conservatory education has reached the required level. For these students the preliminary training programme offers one or two years of preparatory work on the principal-study subject, theory and ear training ('solfège'), all in combination with school or work.

There are no separate entrance requirements for the principal study; the examining board will assess as to whether students show sufficient potential and development to attain the required level within one or two years. The same applies to theoretical knowledge and ear training. In this case too, the examiners will 'measure' potential and knowledge already acquired. Students who complete the theoretical subjects during the preliminary training programme may - in consultation with the board of directors - already start attending classes in theoretical subjects at first-year level.
