Frequently asked questions
How do I register?
What happens if my course is full?
If your course is full you can register on an interesting list. It is not a queue list but if someone quit there is a new chance to start. You can also check out our other courses mabe you find an available course that you want to try instead. In the end of every therm the list will be deleted.
How many courses can my child go to in the same time at the culture school?
We have a policy that says that a student may only play one musical instrument at a time at Kulturskolan. This is because we want as many children as possible will have the opportunity to participate on our culture school. But you can go to dance, art class, theater and photo at the same time as you play a musical instrument.
Is there a lesson-guarantee?
You are guaranteed 11 lesson each therm. These include concerts, performances, exhibitions and regular lessons. However, you will lose a lesson if you are unable to attend for any other reason. The lesson can be offered in real life our on distance. Talk with your teacher.
Where do lessons take place?
The majority are scheduled after school. In this case, lessons will be held at Kulturskolan, on the second floor of Blohmehuset on Skolgatan 1 our in folkets hus, skolgatan 18, Dance lessons will take place in rooms adapted for dance. We also offer some digital courses. Where the teacher and you meet online by a computer.
What time are lessons held?
Students attend lessons for 20 minutes a week during regular primary school time, or after school. Dance, theater, art and orchestra sessions take place after school time. If you have another preference, this can always be discussed.
The school year
We follow the school year in effect in Älmhult Municipality, which means there are no regular lessons at Kulturskolan during holidays or training days.
Some instruments can be rented by those attending Kulturskolan’s courses. The following instruments are available for rent: violin, cello, acoustic guitar, trumpet, trombone, tuba, tenor horn, French horn, flute, clarinet and saxophone. Get in touch with us at email@example.com and we’ll try to find a solution.
Do you have to be good to study with us?
No prior experience is required, with every student at Kulturskolan given the chance to develop at their own pace. Students are expected to spend time practising at home ahead of forthcoming lessons.
What happens if too few people register on a course?
If too few people sign up for a course (e.g., under five students at a school), the lessons will be held at Kulturskolan.
I have completed primary education. Can I still take part?
If you have completed primary school and have decided to stop playing an instrument for the time being, but are considering starting up again, get in touch with Kulturskolan.
Can I give it a try without having to pay?
As a beginner, you may try out a course of your choice for three lessons. If you decide not to continue, you must inform Kulturskolan by the third lesson at the latest, or you will be charged for the full term.
