Between the ages of 12 and 18 our music school offers a wide range of activities ranging from individual lessons and harmony and theory classes to orchestral ensembles, jazz bands and musical theatre.
Students can pursue their musical education in a thriving surrounding and varied setting. All styles of music can be explored, and we encourage our different departments to collaborate when preparing performances. It is a wonderful time to make friends outside of one’s usual setting!
Classical Music Program
The benefits of classical music training are extraordinary, far-reaching and life-long. We have a stellar faculty of musician teachers who inspire and motivate students of all ages.
Our program features weekly half-hour individual lessons (45 minutes or even 60 minutes for more advanced students) and a one-hour Music Theory or Ensemble class.
In addition to weekly classes, our music school provides multiple concert opportunities for students at all levels. We believe that the earlier children experience the pleasure and pride of performance, the greater their level of confidence and motivation will be.
We encourage motivated students to prepare the Associated Board Royal School of Music (ABRSM) exams held annually in May at our school.
These London-based exams are recognized internationally and can be a great source of motivation for some students.
Our candidates have about a 99% success rate, with about 80% obtaining a high pass, merit or distinction.
We also offer individual preparation for the ABRSM Grade 5 practical musicianship test: ABRSM Grade 5 Practical Musicianship Test.
Jazz and Modern Music Program
Music cognition experts define musical improvisation as one of the most creative and extraordinary human capabilities — it requires rapid synapse-firing, supremely focused presence and deep intuition. Music theory in jazz is a specific approach to learning the written language of music, and is equally as demanding as classical music theory.
Our program features weekly half-hour individual lessons (45 minutes or even 60 minutes for more advanced students) and a one-hour Jazz & Rock Ensemble class.
L'Ecole Koenig was the first music school in Paris to open a jazz department for children in 1994. The school was also the first in France to organize public jazz masterclasses for promising young French musicians in partnership with the City of Paris Bureau of Cultural Affairs. Our guests included Herbie Hancock, Michel Petrucciani, John Scofield, and Branford Marsalis.
We encourage motivated students to prepare for the RockSchool exams, held at our school each year in June. If you wish to find out more about the Rockschool exams, please visit the RockSchool website.
