The Music School of Charlottenburg-Wilmersdorf (‘Musikschule City West’)
Hello and a Warm Welcome to our Musical Website!
We are glad you have found your way to us online – if you are looking for our school, you will find it in the Westend district of Berlin-Charlottenburg-Wilmersdorf.
The Music School of Charlottenburg-Wilmersdorf (new name since 2011 ‘Musikschule City West’) was founded in 1923 by Fritz Jöde. It is the oldest institution of its kind in Germany.
Our school is partly funded by the local District Council, as is every public music school in Berlin. The objective is to give everybody the possibility to have high quality music education which is affordable.
We offer singing lessons and you can learn to play almost any musical instrument, choosing from a multitude of musical styles and rhythms. You can take weekly private lessons with an individual teacher, or participate in a group. There are choirs, orchestras and bands, and you may have the opportunity to perform in some kind of musical ensemble.
We cater for all age groups and levels of proficiency, eg. for preschool children there are special groups to further the child’s musical development and appreciation.
Many of our teachers speak English quite fluently, but you would have to request this especially.
Should you have any further questions, please contact us by email or call us on (030) 9029 17907.
Our office hours are: Tuesday and Wednesday, from 12 – 3pm.
(Please note that we are not available during the school holidays)
We look forward to hearing from you!
