Based on the versatility of the Salzburg Mozarteum Foundation and its three core areas of activity Concerts, Research and Museums, the Educational Department is able to offer an extensive programme.  The range of projects undertaken is constantly being expanded, and topical issues often feature in concerts.

Our workshops address playgroups, schools, and children who would like to learn more about Mozart and his life.


Rhapsody in School (for all ages)

Rhapsody in School was created by pianist Lars Vogt and addresses school classes of all ages.

With this project, musicians, who otherwise only play on major stages, have the opportunity to narrow the distance between them and the audience. Outside the orchestral pit, world-famous personalities relate what music means to them. Performing live music and giving a personal insight into their profession, the musicians aim to pass on their enthusiasm about their instrument and music to the students.

In this season the Salzburg Mozarteum Foundation is again a co-operation partner of Rhapsody in School. Our main aim is to facilitate the encounter between school classes and musicians performing in our institution. Artists visit the school classes, and pupils have the opportunity to attend the concert or final rehearsal of the musicians.

Wunderkind Mozart (8-10 years of age)

Wunderkind Mozart (Mozart the child prodigy) is a workshop especially developed for 3rd to 4th  form classes.

Based on reports, narratives and biographical dates about Wolfgang Amadé Mozart, this workshop takes children through all aspects of the Research Department of the Salzburg Mozarteum Foundation.

This is particularly interesting for all those who want to discover more about musical talent and the term child prodigy.

Mozart & the Sociodrama (10-12 years of age)

The Mystery of the Unknown is a workshop about Mozart’s opera The Magic Flute.

In this new workshop series Mozart & the Social Drama, works by Mozart form the basis for various subjects, which seem to have relevance for adolescents.

By means of J. L. Moreno’s method of social drama, these subjects are worked on through role play, role reversal and so-called mirroring. Engaging in all sorts of questions and emotions evoked by Mozart’s characters and musical themes thus leads to enhanced decision-making, responsibility, and a change of perspectives.

The Mystery of the Unknown is the first workshop of the series Mozart & the Social Drama.

Mozart Week Workshops (10-18 years of age)

The Mozart Week is the highlight of the concert season organized by the Salzburg Mozarteum Foundation. The Mozart Week Workshops, which are arranged and organized by students in the Music Educational Department of the Mozarteum University, have become an integral part of the festival.

Pure Keyboard: The Salzburg Mozarteum Foundation’s keyboard instruments (from 13 years of age)

Mozart himself played them: the fortepiano, the clavichord, harpsichord and organ – each of these instruments has its own sound and a very specific mechanism.

All these keyboard instruments are on display in the Dancing Master’s Hall in the Mozart Residence and will be performed during this workshop. Besides this, lots of information will be provided about the history, the manner of playing, how the instruments were built, and of course one or two anecdotes

Mozart Reporters (from 14 years of age)

Meet artists, become a reporter – in the coming season schoolchildren can be active as journalists and report on the Mozart Week 2017.  The Mozarteum Foundation offers young people insights into the work of an arts journalist and enables them to go around as reporters and present their results to the public.

The schoolchildren are prepared for this task in a workshop on interview techniques.  They are given a press identity card so that they can take a look behind the scenes of the Mozart Week, do on-the-spot research, attend concerts and interview the performing artists.

This is followed by a two-day workshop in which they learn about the various forms of reporting and elaborate their texts under specialist supervision.  All those who want to take part should enjoy doing independent research, preparing interview questions and writing texts.  Select reports, reviews or interviews will be published on the Salzburg Mozarteum Foundation’s homepage.

Silke Fokken is a freelance journalist focusing on education as well as media for children and young people.  She studied literature, journalism and political science, was a trainee at the radio station Sender Freies Berlin and works mainly for the German Press Agency, Spiegel Online and Die Zeit

Evidence under the Magnifying Glass (from the age of 12)

A musical crime story about sources: schoolchildren carry out research in the archives of the Salzburg archdiocese for sources, texts and pictures.

Scene of the crime: the archives of the Salzburg archdiocese in the former Cardinal Schwarzenberg House. This is where musical collections from the 16th century to the present are kept safe.  Important musical sources by Wolfgang Amadé and Leopold Mozart are also to be found here because both men composed for the liturgy in Salzburg Cathedral.  The investigators: young persons from the age of 12 search for evidence in the archives of the archdiocese.

The procedure: on the basis of various kinds of musical sources (autograph, copy, facsimile) the investigators find out how sources are stored, catalogued and digitalized, how they can be dated, and what else they can tell us about music history. We look at watermarks and writing utensils and analyse how Wolfgang Amadé Mozart and his father Leopold corrected the copies of their works.
