CvA Reach Out aims to help musicians who endeavor to start or continue their music education, but no longer have the opportunity to do so within their country of origin. The programme is open to all refugee music students.

Every Sunday we will open our doors and offer free music lessons, workshops, and other facilities and means of support to registered refugees living (temporarily) in the Netherlands to help with the continuation of their studies or the start of their (higher) music education.

youngsters between the ages of 8 and 18 who have had music lessons in their country of origin, providing:

  • free lessons on Sundays at CvA by experienced staff and/or alumni.
