Receive a Top, Specialist Music Education with an IB Career-related Programme at AMADEUS Vienna

We are proud to announce that we have been given candidate status for the IB Career-related Programme. The International Baccalaureate Career-related Programme provides the perfect pathway for students who wish to become professional musicians, or otherwise go on to study music at university level.

The two-year programme will provide the student with a BTEC International Level 3 in Music after studying core academic subjects alongside undergraduate-level music studies. We are the first school in Austria to offer this opportunity, which is possible due to our excellent IB academic programme and our integrated Music and Arts Academy (AMAA) with highly talented experts and professors.

As the first All-Steinway School in Austria, we are equipped with 21 Steinway pianos (including one model D and three baby grand pianos), as well as more than 20 dedicated private music practice rooms. In addition to that, we are privileged to be supported by the ‘Goh Family Collection’ of rare violins, cellos, and violas.
