Our musical school
Cantaleum Zurich aims to fill a niche in the field of arts education in Switzerland by not only supporting students in their academic achievement, but also in their musical development, as well.
Central to musical education at Cantaleum is the human voice as an essential instrument. Well-planned vocal training developed with children's capabilities in mind is the foundation for making music at Cantaleum, whether in a group (chamber music, choral) or solo. The acquisition of vocal skills opens the doors to many creative possibilities.
In addition, Cantaleum Zürich recommends supplementary musical instrument lessons. At Cantaleum, a student will receive guidance in choosing a suitable instrument and have access to highly-qualified teachers, both of which are crucially important to a child's musical success.
The artistry and skill that results from musical training is not always just meant for the artist alone: it can also be shared with an audience. Through various types of concerts, students can demonstrate their musicianship and progress in their work. Performing for an audience should be a fun, enjoyable and positive experience for students. Such self-affirming moments in a child's development are invaluable and have a lifelong effect.
Combining early musical training with academic learning is an ideal way to give children positive guiding principles and to strengthen their motivation to learn.
