Registration for an annual course is possible throughout the year. Classes start after the summer vacations. If a suitable place becomes available, you can enroll on an interim basis. In that case, the relevant teacher will contact you.
During the summer vacation, our teachers are busy making the class schedule. They are also enjoying their well-deserved vacation for a while. It is therefore difficult to say exactly when you will hear whether your registration is final. By the first week of September at the latest, we close the processing of registrations and you will receive a definite message from us.
|Instruments||In July and August, the teachers review which new students can be placed for year-long instrumental courses.
Many students continue playing instruments; they may indicate their preference first. Some students do not know this until the end of summer vacation due to their own school schedule and sports. Hence, for new students it is sometimes a bit of a wait when there is a spot. Of course we do our best to place everyone. If you, your son or daughter qualify for music lessons, the relevant teacher will contact you with a proposal for a day and time.
There is a waiting list for some musical instruments. If the class schedule is full, you (or your child) will be placed on the waiting list. You will be notified of this no later than the first week of September.
|Dance||Invitation will follow in July. If you register after July 22, you will receive notification no later than the first week of September.|
|Groups||For classroom classes such as Basic Music, Music and Movement, Choirs and Dance, you will receive an email or letter notifying you of placement by the end of July. If you enroll after July 22, you will receive notification no later than the first week of September.|
|Ensembles||You will receive an invitation from the teacher. This can be before, during or after the vacations. No later than the first week of September.|
|Languages||You will receive confirmation two weeks before the start. Depending on the number of registrations, a course will go ahead. If you want to be sure you are enrolling for the right level, sign up for a personalized intake with the teacher.|
Short courses are offered three times a year in blocks of 9 lessons. These blocks start: after the summer vacation, in January and in May. You will receive confirmation two weeks before the start. Depending on the number of applications, a course may or may not go ahead.
In the general information of your chosen dance course you will find the schedule with days and times. Go to the course overview.

In June, the teachers review which new students can be placed for the instrumental year courses. If you, your son or daughter are eligible for music lessons, the relevant teacher will contact you with a proposal for a day and time. We try to have the draft schedule ready in the second week of July. If you have not heard from us by then, you can assume that placement is not possible for the new course year. You will receive a message about this some time later.
If you have registered yourself or your child for a short course starting in October, January and/or April, you will receive two weeks' notice of whether participation is possible.
For classroom classes such as AMV, Music and Movement, Choirs and Dance, you will receive an email or letter notifying you of placement by the end of July.

The number of people with impaired hearing is increasing enormously. On the one hand this is due to aging, on the other hand deafness is increasingly being diagnosed among young people and musicians. An important cause is loud noise, including loud music. If you want to know what you can do to prevent hearing damage, go to www.hoorstichting.nl
