Mikulov Elementary Art and Music School

The Elementary Art and Music School of Mikulov has been a membership organisation owned by the South Moravia Region. The school provides elementary education in all arts including music, visual arts, dance, literature and drama. In addition to the main centre in Mikulov the school operates branches at Valtice and Dolní Dunajovice.


Sample imageMusic has been the first art taught at the school. Children from very early age can attend rudimentary music theory classes and keyboard, string, wind or folk instrument classes or singing classes. Instrument and singing lessons are individual while music theory is taught in class. The pupils may in addition learn chamber playing, ensemble playing and chamber chorus singing. They can play in the school chamber orchestra, dulcimer band and dance orchestra.

Visual Art

Visual art classes offer education in the basic art techniques, major historic art styles, expression of their feelings and world outlooks. At present the school prepares opening of new subjects based on work with digital technologies. The course portfolio will further be extended with work with digital photographic camera and movie camera, graphic studio, digital recording and sound processing.


Dance classes develop the children ´s mobility, dance skills, sense of rhythm, music imagination, creative and improvisation skills and last but not least their ability of creative cooperation in group.
