Everyone can learn

Everyone can learn, whatever their skills and background, and the courses we provide offer comprehensive training. We aim to offer something from everyone, with programmes for all levels of aptitude.

Songs for the Kulturskolan Spotify list are compiled in one room, while others play host to rehearsals for the next musical theatre performance and preparations for a forthcoming exhibition. Meanwhile, on the bottom floor, the string orchestra is practicing for a concert and children's laughter can be heard from the dance room during a ballet lesson.

Focus on fun

We believe the joy of learning, performing and collaborating is especially important, as well as creating a sense of belonging. You can meet new friends here and put on large or small performances, exhibitions and shows working together. With this in mind, we strive to ensure children and young people play together in groups as much as possible.

Apply to Kulturskolan

In order to attend the music school you must complete a registration form and send it to us. Applications will be processed in the order they are received.

Fees

The municipality provides large subsidies to Kulturskolan, however, this does not cover the full cost of your course. This is why we charge a fee for attending Kulturskolan. The fees charged by Älmhult Municipality are substantially lower than in many other local authorities, and this is because the decision makers in Älmhult believe in the importance of Kulturskolan.

About Kulturskolan

In this time we are living in, Kulturskolan is even more important. Everyone needs a place where you can create, learn through play, develop, express yourself and discover new things. Kulturskolan is also a place for new encounters.

When you leave Kulturskolan we want you to bring something positive that you, in different ways, will make use of in life. Perhaps a hobby for life or be able to go on to higher studies. In our Kulturskola we love diversity and will adapt the education after your circumstances as far as possible.

Kulturskolan in Älmhult is part of the municipality's activity and the municipality is very positive to give children and youths meaningful cultural activities.

Good to know

  • At least 22 tuition opportunities are included per term. In this performances and plays are included.
  • You can rent the following instruments: violin, cello, trombone, horn, clarinet and saxophone.
  • The tuitions are 20 minutes each week, during or after schooltime. After schooltime the tuition take place at Kulturskolan or in locals adapted for the activity. The schedule for group lessons can vary.

Project

At Kulturskolan we want to be approachable for all children in the municipality, not only for those actively applying to us and our courses. That is why we work in parallel with our subject course activities in different projects.

  • We have drama/music for all students at special primary school and special upper secondary school each week which usually end in a few smaller plays each year
  • We run the project ”rhythmics in preschool” where we visit all preschools in the municipality to have rhythmics with the children and inspire preschool staff to use rhythmics in their daily work and as a way of communicating with the children
  • Each year we make an advent calendar and record it in the Älmhult arena, which is later aired every day during December
  • Each year we produce some form of bigger child musical project where we often collaborate with various primary schools in Älmhult municipality
