Cheap music school in Zurich?

I am moving to Zurich next month to start a PhD, and really look forward to spend my free time studying a musical instrument.

Does anyone know of reasonably priced music schools in town? (something I can afford on a grad student stipend

I've ben told that each borough offers a number of music courses, is that true? I don't speak German yet, so am struggling to find relevant info.

Any suggestion is much appreciated!

Best,

Re: Cheap music school in Zurich?

Hi Gizmo,

Stadt Zurich subsidises lessons for full-time students under 25 living within its borders.

This subsidy amounts to about 60% of the cost (e.g. CHF 640 per semester for a weekly 30 minute lesson vs CHF 1540 for those not qualifying for the subsidy) but even so it is by no means cheap.

If you qualify for the subsidy, click the pdf under "Schulgeld" (school fees) on the following page Musik Konservatorium Zurich for alternatives that might be cheaper, (e.g. a fortnightly lesson, group lessons). The last two columns show the discounted and non-discounted rates.

You would need to get to them pretty quickly if you wanted to start immediately in September, as they follow school terms and seem to be winding down for the year. They respond to emails in English. (Use the "Kontaktformular" - contact form).

Re: Cheap music school in Zurich?

Which instrument? Would private lessons do it for you, or do you want a school environment with music theory, etc.? Classic/Jazz/Pop?

Does the University not offer anything? Maybe you could find a Uni Music student, who could teach you cheaply for some extra cash?

Re: Cheap music school in Zurich?

In Switzerland, Universities do not offer music studies (instruments, voice..) only Music Science.

You'd have to search at ZHdK to find or search for music students who give private lessons. http://blackboard.zhdk.ch. You can also search the blackboards at Musik Hug or Jecklin.
