Faroe Music School has moved into a brand-new building, giving the school better conditions to work. The aim of the school is to develop and organise musical education across the country.
The new building is 2,600m2 and includes a concert hall, called Hátún, that seats around 300 people. DKK96.5m was spent on building the new music school, which is in Tórshavn.
Music teachers are employed at 13 music schools across the country. They are required to have a degree from an Academy of Music or a higher degree in music. Municipalities cover half of employees’ wages, while the government covers the other half. Nearly 30 types of instruments are taught at the music schools.
