Face-to-face teaching has started
As of Monday, March 15, 2021, classes will resume in the buildings of the Ludwig van Beethoven Music School: Individual lessons in the instrumental and vocal subjects run mostly as face-to-face classes. All other forms of instruction, including chamber music and ensemble lessons in particular, as well as early music education courses, will continue online. Due to the still difficult infection situation, teachers are free to decide against face-to-face lessons and to continue with distance lessons until the vacations.
Strict hygiene and safety regulations apply to the restart of face-to-face teaching. For example, students and teachers are required to wear medical mouth-nose protection, even during class, unless it significantly interferes with instruction. Parents are asked to accompany their children only as far as the building and to attend classes only if this is absolutely necessary for educational reasons.
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.
