The music institute receives governmental support for instruction in the advanced syllabus. In addition, the pupil’s place of domicile (Tampere, Kangasala, Ylöjärvi, Hämeenkyrö) supports each pupil place. If the pupil’s place of domicile is elsewhere, the pupil has to pay a pupil place fee of €1,000 per year in addition to the tuition fees.

2. The general syllabus (also Suzuki instruction)

The general syllabus consists of a weekly

  • playing or singing lesson,
  • optional orchestra rehearsal or some other ensemble playing group,
  • optional lesson on musical perception starting from age 9–11, and
  • regular independent home practice.

The tuition fee per semester is €370–930 depending on the length of the playing/singing lesson (15–60 min). For example, the tuition fee for 30-minute lessons is €600. The tuition fee for choirs is €60 per semester (€120 per year).

Instruction in the general syllabus is not supported by the government or the municipalities, so the pupil’s place of domicile does not affect the fee.

3. Preparatory instruction

Lessons in preparatory instruction are held in small groups for 30-60 minutes. If a group is not formed, the student will receive personal instruction for at least 15 minutes / week. The tuition fee per semester is €370 (€740 per year). More information on fees here.

After preparatory instruction pupils can continue studies in the advanced or the general syllabus. More information here.
