Liechtenstein/ 8.3 Arts and cultural education  

8.3.5 Basic out-of-school arts and cultural education

The Liechtenstein Music School is an open and creative place for education and encounters. With more than 2 600 pupils, it is the largest educational institution in Liechtenstein and is open to all age groups. It participates actively in the cultural life of the region and promotes musical diversity. The Liechtenstein Music School offers individualised, multifaceted, and modern instruction. Group instruction for children is offered as well as courses in instruments, voice, and music theory. The instructors are trained musicians with music diplomas from recognised conservatories or universities. They promote cooperative and public performances and the musical and social skills of pupils.

At the Liechtenstein School of Fine Arts, pupils are admitted from the age of two. Art instruction gives children the opportunity to discover themselves and their talent in a stimulating environment without any pressure to perform. Approximately from the age of twelve, cognitive skills are increasingly also advanced. Young people are given the opportunity for advancement specifically in view of future professional possibilities as well as admission to a specialised art and design school. Adults expecting more than the usual recreational courses can also benefit from the course offerings at the Liechtenstein School of Fine Arts.
