Azerbaijan/ 8.3 Arts and cultural education  

8.3.5 Basic out-of-school arts and cultural education

At present, there are 237 specialised schools teaching music, dance and painting at primary level, which children attend for 4 to 7 years (art - 4 years, dance - 5 years, music - 7 years). Music schools teach classical (piano, violin, cello, flute, clarinet, oboe, trumpet, tuba, bassoon, etc.) and folk (tar, kemancha, nagara, canon, balaban, etc.) instruments, as well as classical and folk singing. Music and art schools are totally state-funded. "The Development Programme on improving the activities of children's music, art and painting schools in the Republic of Azerbaijan (2009-2013)" had been fulfilled in order to improve organisational and infrastructural provisions in this field.
