Music School

Who are we?

Rotterdam International Music School is an innovative music school with a team of young, dedicated and enthusiastic music professionals that offer music education at the highest level. RIMS is connected with RISS, the students and their activities, bringing to RIMS students a rich international atmosphere. Our students are aged between 8 and 18 years old and our aim is to bring them accessible, affordable, interactive and quality music lessons. Our philosophy is to balance the essential instrumental lessons with ensemble playing. Our choice of instruments is wide and we offer multiple options to play or sing in a wind band, orchestra, drums band, pop band or choir.

The RIMS staff are composed of highly qualify international teachers who provide a wide range of instrumental lessons. Music lessons are currently offered in:

  • Brass (Trumpet, Trombone, French Horn, Euphonium/Baritone)

  • Woodwinds (Clarinet, Flute, Saxophone, Oboe, Bassoon and Recorder)

  • Strings (Violin, Viola, Cello and Guitar)

  • Drums and Percussion

  • Piano

  • Voice

Who are our activities for?

Our programme is designed for RISS students and can be used as a complementary activity to their weekly music lessons. RISS staff members and parents are also welcome to join and participate in the music activities. 

We also provide free trial lessons for new students and if you are undecided you can borrow some of our instruments until you find the most suitable for you, always with professional advice.

You can find all the information about the different courses and prices here. Enrolment into the programme can be done at any time during the year, but we recommend to do it as soon as the new academic year starts. You can click here to fill out the enrolment form.
