Teaching young talented musicians requires specific skills which the founders of Musica Mundi have acquired through more than twenty-five years of experience.
Young musicians generally achieve results at school that are above average, because of their increased ability to concentrate and the discipline they have acquired from learning music. For such talented pupils, excellence is usually what they aim for and the primary source of their motivation.
For this purpose, high-quality and dedicated teachers were recruited, who are experienced and passionate about pedagogy and who understand what is needed for the development of young musicians.
The general education lessons will be entirely integrated into the student’s daily schedule, between his/her lessons of musical education. Mathematics, combined science, physics, English, French, German, history, global perspectives, psychology and sport lessons are included in the curriculum.
The school will follow the Cambridge International Examinations programme and qualifications with an approximately 20 hours a week workload, and will deliver a high school diploma certified by this programme. This diploma will enable students to enter any university or conservatory around the world. School will also deliver a Musica Mundi School Diploma at the end of the last year of study.
The school will bring together children aged 10 to 18, which corresponds to eight classes – the two last classes of primary school (Primary 5 and 6) and the full cycle of secondary school (Secondary 1 to 6).
The number of pupils increases progressively, allowing for a controlled expansion of the school but classes will be kept to a maximum of fifteen students.
