Update of our information on the reimbursement of the music education fee

From the start of the 2022-2023 school year, the parents or guardians of students attending a music school in the communal sector may apply for state aid for the reimbursement of fees paid.

To be eligible for state aid, the following conditions must be met:

  • the student is under 18 years of age on 1 September preceding the reference school year;

The objectives of music education are:

  • to provide young people with specialised training in the various musical disciplines so as to enable them to pursue further musical studies.

Applications for state aid must be submitted by the parents or guardians using a specific form and including supporting documents to the Government Commissioner for Music Education by 1 October of the following school year at the latest.
