Elementary music school

Elementary music school lasts 6 years. The school works according to the curriculum of the Ministry of Science, Education and Sports. Teaching theoretical subjects; solfeggio and music theory is in groups, while teaching by instruments takes place on an individual level. Solfeggio classes in the 1st and 2nd grade of primary school are conducted according to an experimental program approved by the Ministry of Science, Education and Sports. At the end of the school year, students receive a public document – a certificate. Our students participate in multidisciplinary workshops and educations for children, in which we combine various art forms in favor of strengthening creative development and expression.

Classes are conducted in English and Croatian. The weekly schedule includes a combination of individual lectures, rehearsals and time for personal practice. In class, our students learn their instrument, music theory, hearing practice, music history, and practicing music, along with a variety of electives. Most lectures are held twice a week. The schedule may vary depending on the program, school year, and ensemble tasks.

We believe that education should be approached individually. Each student should have the opportunity to learn at their own pace. An individual approach encourages passion for music and engages students to participate more actively in the learning process.

Classes are held in the premises of the Private Music School ‘Iva Kuprešak’ in Zagreb Ljubijska 82, and in the Regional Department in Novalja, at Ulica Matice hrvatske 9.

As part of the primary school program, the school teaches the following instruments:

Piano

Piano

A stringed musical instrument with keys, on which the sound is created by hitting the bats on the strings, 88 of them of different thicknesses and lengths. Due to great performance possibilities, it is most often a solo instrument, but it can also be an accompaniment to other instruments. The piano can be played by two players at the same time, that is, it can be played four-handed. Eat the end of the XVIII. century piano completely supressed its famous predecessors, harpsichord and clavichord.

Cello

Cello

With its warm sound, cello can never leave you indifferent. In the orchestra is as important instrument as the violin, but it also often "collaborates" with the double bass, creating the rhythmic backbone of the composition. Like learning the violin, learning the cello is adapted to the growth of the child, so younger children begin learning on small instruments. Already in the first year of study, children play small compositions accompanied by a piano and learn to perform in front of an audience.

Flute

Flute

A moving, virtuoso instrument of fluttering sound. It is considered one of the oldest musical instruments due to the simple principle of creating sound. The oldest flutes were built of bone, bamboo and clay. The only wooden wind instrument that is not made of wood and has no mouthpiece. It belongs to the group of wooden blowers because until the XIX. century it was made of wood. It can be longitudinal (so-called recorder) and transverse.

Accordion

Accordion

The accordion is an instrument consisting of three main parts - treble (with keys or buttons), bellows and bass. In addition to these basic parts, it is interesting to mention that the accordion, depending on the size of the instrument, has a different number of registers, which allow it to change different pitches and expand the range of tone tones.

Guitar

Guitar

The guitar is recognized as one of the primary instruments in blues, country music, flamenco, rock and many other forms. It is fundamentally used as a classical solo instrument and is tutored in our music school. During the six-year primary schooling, according to the curriculum of individual guitar lessons and group theory classes, i.e. solfeggio, the student acquires a quality education.

Violin

Violin

The violin is a string instrument with a recognizable, clear sound. Although often called the queen of instruments, she is primarily the basis of the orchestra. But whether we look at it as a solo instrument or as part of an orchestra, we will see that it is present everywhere, both in classical and jazz music as well as in folk ensembles and all other musical directions. Learning the violin begins at an early age on a small instrument adjusted to the child's height and "grows" with him to his true size.

Saxophone

Saxophone

The saxophone (abbreviated "Sax") is a musical instrument made of metal, but is classified as a woodwind instrument because of its mechanics (conical tube and technique are similar to oboe) and the factor that produces the tone (wooden single tab similar to the clarinet). It consists of a tongue, a mouthpiece, a pipe and the body of the instrument itself. The saxophone was invented in 1840. Antoine Joseph Sax, the famous creator of brass instruments and reported it in 1846. as a patent of 7 instruments (soprano, soprano, alto, tenor, baritone, bass and double bass).
