The Law of 27 May 2022 on the organisation of music education in the communal sector provides for a subsidy whose purpose is to cover the minerval (tuition fee for music education as set by the commune or the association of communes) in accordance with the legal provisions. It also sets out the conditions for free tuition for pupils up to the age of 18 during the first years of a certain number of the branches taught, and sets a ceiling for the tuition fee and any other fees that will be invoiced to the student by the commune or the association of communes of EUR 100 per branch and school year.
For students that meet the conditions below, the full amount of the fees is refunded to the students' parents/guardians.
The parents or guardians of a student attending a music school as provided for by law may apply for state aid for the reimbursement of the tuition fees paid.
To be eligible for state aid for the reimbursement of the fees paid, the following conditions must be met:
The maximum gross monthly income threshold (3.5 times social minimum wage for unskilled workers) of the household is increased by EUR 500 for each additional child under 18 years of age on 1 September preceding the reference school year, i.e. from the second child onwards.
Applications must be submitted using a specific form together with supporting documents to the Government Commissioner for Music Education (commissaire du Gouvernement à l’enseignement musical) by 1 October of the following school year at the latest.
Please note that parents or guardians must submit the form and the mandatory supporting documents for each application.
