Music schools

The Ludwig van Beethoven Music School Bonn was founded in the summer of 1970, i.e. it has been a public educational institution of the city of Bonn for more than fifty years.

Face-to-face teaching has started

As of Monday, May 17, the Ludwig van Beethoven Music School will again offer face-to-face lessons: Students from general education schools and children in their final year of kindergarten will then be able to come back to the music school for lessons. Initially, however, teachers will be free to choose whether to continue their classes in a face-to-face or online format.

Distance lessons will still be offered for adult music students. Depending on the discretion of the student and the teacher, outdoor lessons are also available. 

Lessons for ensembles and small groups will be held online until at least the end of May for infection control reasons. The music school will check with the respective school administrations in a timely manner whether music lessons can again take place in OGS and schools.

There are five branches in different city districts: Poppelsdorf and Bonn (Kirschallee 23), Hardtberg (Schieffelingsweg 2), Beuel (Rheinaustr. 31), Dransdorf (Siemensstr. 246) and Bad Godesberg (Kurfürstenallee 8-9). In addition, the music school is active in numerous Bonn schools and kindergartens at over 30 other locations in Bonn. The head office is located in Bad Godesberg, Kurfürstenallee 8.

In the school year 17/18, more than 5,000 students visited the Ludwig van Beethoven Music School in Bonn every week, which is taught by approx. 200 teachers every week. In addition, there are about 500 adults a year who take part in courses and workshops of limited duration.

The aim is to arouse interest in making music in as broad a section of the population as possible and, in particular, to promote young people musically. Almost all instruments and singing are offered. Children can start their musical education at the age of three. Lessons are usually given in the afternoon or in the evening.

The municipal Ludwig van Beethoven Music School Bonn is a member of the Association of German Music Schools and thus fulfills certain quality criteria, e.g. with regard to the training of teachers.
