Music ladders

Music ladders in a nutshell

  • preparatory instrument studies of 1-year duration
  • run in groups of 6-8 students, 45-60 min/week
  • instrument selection: violin, viola, piano, guitar, recorder, saxophone, trumpet, trombone
  • enrollment via EMO casting, applying in April-May
  • Music Ladders hold up to 80-100 students yearly
  • opportunity to apply to continue playing within the elementary studies at the music institute, based on the development and motivation shown
  • term fee 189 €, including the instrument rented (does not concern the piano)
  • study locations in Tapiola

Music Ladders offer an opportunity to try a hobby in music in a group (6-8 children) for one year. During a weekly class we study the basic music skills with an instrument and enjoy making music together. With an instrument to borrow (doesn’t concern keys), the families get experience in practicing at home required by the hobby. During the year we organize concert experience and events.

In case you decide to keep the hobby after the year in Music Ladders, you may apply for the elementary studies in EMO or elsewhere. For the participants of the Music Ladders we have created a path into other forms of arts: dance, theater, circus and visual arts, together with arts institutions of the city of Espoo.

Climb the Music Ladders into the world of music.
