The Central Music School of the Moscow Conservatory is a unique phenomenon in music education; it’s one of the most famous and prestigious schools in the world. The main goal of the school is to provide integrated training for highly-skilled young musicians. From early childhood gifted children receive both professional music and general academic education combined with all-round creative, intellectual and spiritual development.
The history of the school goes back to 1932 when at the initiative of the Moscow Conservatory Professor Alexander Goldenweiser and President of the Moscow Conservatory Stanislav Shatsky a “Special Children’s Group” was created that consisted of only 15 children from all over the Soviet Union. On May 20, 1935 by decision of the Soviet government it was converted into the Central Music School.
Luminaries of the school, such as pianists Anna Artobolevskaya, Tamara Bobovich, Tatyana Kestner, Ilya Klyachko, Anaida Sumbatyan, Yevgeny Timakin, Elena Khoven, violinists Semyon Bezrodny, Yuri Yankelevich, Volodar Bronin, Mikhail Garlitsky, Mikhail Kurdyumov, Zoya Makhtina, Valeriya Merenblum, Zinaida Gilels, viola players Fyodor Drizhinin, N. Sokolov, Mikhail Terian, cellists Sergei Aslamazyan, Galina Kozolupova, bass players Andrei Astakhov, Yevgeny Kolosov, flutist Yuri Dolzhikov and others developed a unique system of teaching performing arts. This system encompasses a close tie between artistic and technical development of a musician coupled with mastering different music styles and developing artistic qualities necessary for professional musicians.
Year after year the Central Music School hosts major cultural national and international events, such as the annual Central Music School International Competition of Young Performers, the Nutcracker International TV Competition of Young Musicians, the Frederick Chopin Moscow International Competition of Young Pianists, masterclasses with outstanding musicians of modern times, all-Russian and international festivals. The school’s rich history, its precious experience of training high-class musicians gained over decades, its glorious traditions, highly-qualified talented teachers as well as excellent facilities create ideal conditions for the Central Music School of the Moscow Conservatory to fulfill its high mission: to raise new generations of musicians, multiply the glory of Russian music art and enrich its contribution to world culture.
The Central Music School of the Moscow State Tchaikovsky Conservatory is a federal state public school.
