information about how to lower the music course fees with the help of your local municipality
The Association "Scuola di Musica Collina d'Oro" is a growing private music school in Canton Tessin, with different locations in Montagnola, Lugano, Lamone and Stabio. It was founded in 2019 with the object of spreading musical education and promoting cultural growth in Tessin, with the aim of developing the aesthetic sense of the children and adults by transmitting love and passion for music. The administration of the school is entrusted to the Committee formed by teachers and supporters, to guarantee a transparent handling of the school's resources, thus offering competitive course rates and managing, to invest as much as possible in the activities of the music school. Our courses are open to all ages and levels.
Lugano - specially the city center - is packed with music schools and various institutes where you can study music. But what about the surroundings, the neighboring villages? We've received numerous feedback from clients in the past years about the difficult traffic circumstances in Lugano, during after school hours, just when students should reach their music course locations. Because of the short time limits and the difficulty in reaching places in the heavy traffic, unfortunately many parents don't even consider to subscribe their children to music courses, or they simply can't find any logistical formula to reach the music school without loosing too music time with travelling. Our music school is trying to give a solution in these cases for these families, by opening new branches in some distant surrounding villages. In fact, for the next school year we are organizing the opening of new subsidiaries of our music school around Lugano. We will post all the updates on our News page.
We'd like to encourage the parents and grandparents as well to participate and enroll to our courses! We use specially developed course material for adult and senior students. It often happens, that people study music as a child, but then for some reason they give up and quit. Later as they become grownups and settle down, most of them regret the fact that they quit many years ago and wish to start all over again. On the other hand, there's the other group of adults and seniors, those, who always wanted to learn how to play on a musical instrument, but never had a chance or the time.
Families should know, that some municipalities in the Lugano area grant a partial contribution to families with children, as an educational support of the costs of the music courses. Each family is invited to check with their own municipality their policy of this subsidy. We think, it is important that the municipal authorities support your efforts in the musical education of your children. The DECS - Department of Education, Culture and Sport - restores about 1/3 of these expenses, partial contributions to the municipalities which they grant to their inhabitants.
