The step to a higher education is big.

The step to a higher education in the arts may be even bigger!

To make your choice, it is important to know what studying a Music programme at the Koninklijk Conservatorium Brussel (KCB) really is like. 

For that, there is no better way than to attend a lesson
(or several lessons) together with current first-year students of KCB.

We warmly welcome you to the Open Class Week of
the Koninklijk Conservatorium Brussel,
from the 12th till the 16th of February 2024.

You will receive a legal certificate of absence if necessary.
