AMADEUS Receives Award: Best Integrated Music and Arts Academy

We are proud to announce that AMADEUS International School and AMADEUS Music and Arts Academy (AMAA) have received an Education and Training Award for the Best Integrated Music and Arts Academy in Austria.

The special award was given by Corporate Vision Magazine who explains that AMADEUS International School has demonstrated excellence, commitment, and dedication. In their Press Release, they write:

“The Education & Training Awards were launched to spotlight the paragons of education and training. Whether you deliver early years support, or professional training opportunities, we have endeavored to showcase those that have truly come to define the sector that they work in.” – Chloe Smart, Awards Coordinator

The UK-based magazine focuses on bettering business practices across the world, and music plays an essential role in this matter. As Alan Greenspan puts it, “Art and music education help children develop abstract thinking that helps them in the business world”.

We believe that all students benefit from having more music, art dance, and theatre creatively embedded in the curriculum, and with music being one of the pillars of Educational Distinction at AMADEUS, we are very proud to be recognised for this.

AMAA: A privileged and unique academy

AMADEUS Music and Arts Academy allows our students to develop their interests and explore their talents further. Mrs Karen Goh, Board appointed Director of AMAA, puts a few words on what makes our academy so special:

AMADEUS Music and Arts Academy is a unique structure integrated into the AMADEUS International School Vienna. Our sole purpose is to provide music and arts exposure and education to students at all levels. In addition to fulfilling students’ highest academic potential, our academy contributes to well-rounded, creative, and confident individuals.

Nestled in the cultural capital of the world, where top music, visual arts, and dance artists live in an environment of cultural legacy, AMAA is very well supported by leading artistic pedagogues. Not only do we offer expert evaluation and mentoring; we are the first ‘All-Steinway High School’ in Austria, and we are privileged to be supported by the ‘Goh Family Collection’ of rare instruments.

We love to share our passion for music and to make new friends, which is why we will launch a new international youth orchestra open for musicians in and around Vienna. Read more here.

“AMADEUS International School Vienna is truly a place where music and arts education is integrated into academic excellence with distinction”, Mrs Karen Goh, Board Appointed Director of AMADEUS Music and Arts Academy
