With this in mind, Franz-Grothe-Music-School of Weiden is open to all interested children and adults.
Beginning classes for children are from ages, 5 months to 6 years. After the completion of these classes, the students may continue their studies with an instrument of their choosing or vocal lessons. It is understood that a combination of the two is also possible.
Upon talent progression all instrumental and vocal students will have the opportunity to perform in public. The range of performing possibilities extends from performing directly in the Franz-Grothe-Music-School to on stage live performances in the esteemed Max-Reger-Halle in Weiden and other venues in the region.
Franz-Grothe-Music-School students will also have opportunities to participate in competitions starting at the local level extending through to the national level.
Students have the possibility to participate in various ensembles such as: School bands, chamber music groups or in the Weiden symphony orchestra. These oppurtunities extend to external students as well. There is no age limitation.
It is a given that the Franz-Grothe-Music-School instructors, not only give excellent weekly musical education, but they take it a step further. Their dedication and love of music insures and fully prepares each and every student with the full capability of continuing their musical education at the university level if one so desires.
