Mission statement

  

Mission statement – Music creates friendships, worldwide

Music and dance are our passion, training young people in these disciplines is our focus, and enriching the culture in Dresden is what brings us joy.

Dresden’s Heinrich-Schütz-Konservatorium is the Saxon capital’s college of music. As the city’s most important cultural education institution, it is part of the German association of music colleges (Verband deutscher Musikschulen).

Its extensive range of courses is open to anyone interested.

Its main focus, however, is on working with children and adolescents, in a bid to educate the new generation in the fields of professional and amateur dance and music-making. The aim is to inspire and encourage an enthusiasm for the shared artistic experience. Achieving this major goal also involves developing and strengthening social skills. Preparing for music studies is one of the conservatory’s key tasks. And extensive work with choirs and ensembles sits at the heart of what we do. This acts as an important link to the cultural scene in Dresden and beyond.

Elementary level classes for children aged 0 to 6 are structured systematically from baby courses to a ‘little songbirds’ course, and early education in music and dance, to an orientation level. In addition to training in classical instruments, subjects also include popular music, ancient music, singing and dance. Music theory, composition and improvisation are also all integral parts of our curriculum. Course and examination content is geared around the relevant specifications issued by the German association of music colleges.

The HSKD considers itself an inclusive music college, and all areas are open to people with disabilities.

Project-based and regular co-operations with national and international cultural and educational institutions are a focus for all our staff, and are part of our open-minded attitude.

The Heinrich-Schütz-Konservatorium Dresden only employs teachers holding a state-certified university degree. And active exchanging of experiences and regular advanced training sessions ensure these teaching staff are always up to date with the latest findings and standards in music education. The conservatory also runs its own advanced training and continued-education programmes.

The Heinrich-Schütz-Konservatorium Dresden receives great recognition and support in its work through the support associations of the major ensembles and through the ‘Freunde des HSKD’ e.V. association.
