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 Produce a Newspaper: Young journalists report on the Mozart Week 2016 (from 14 years of age)

During the coming season schoolchildren can report as journalists on the Mozart Week 2016.  This cooperation between the Salzburger Nachrichten and the Salzburg Mozarteum Foundation gives young people insights into topics for arts journalism and encourages them to present their opinion to the public.

In an introductory lecture Karl Harb, arts journalist for the Salzburger Nachrichten, prepares the young reporters for this task.  All forms of reporting are explained.  The Mozart reporters will have press identity cards and can take a look behind the scenes, do on-the-spot research, attend concerts and interview the performing artists.

Select reports, reviews and interviews will appear on the homepage of the Salzburg Mozarteum Foundation and on the page Mozart Reporters Produce a Newspaper in the Salzburger Nachrichten.

Beatboxing with Mozart: The art of creating rhythm solely with the mouth (from 15 years of age)

Beatboxing is the imitation of beats, sounds, percussive and other instruments using only the mouth.  All sorts of musical genres and styles will be explored, varied and newly invented.

By means of the humming technique a beatboxer can produce two sounds at the same time.  The first part of the workshop concentrates on learning this and other techniques. Afterwards participants will investigate how closely related beatboxing and the spoken word are.  Melodious excerpts from Mozart’s letters will be combined with the beats learned in the first part of the workshop.  The resulting corresponding grooves will be played together as a glorious finale. 

DANCE in animated dialogue (from 15 years of age)

In dance and movement workshops schoolchildren evolve performance interventions as the overture to the concert Sound Club W. A. M. 

Working in improvisation, establishing themes, questioning one’s own experiences, and developing one’s own dialogic performances in line with the musical form presented in the context of the concert series Die Kammer (The Chamber) during the concert Sound Club W. A. M.  in the Salzburg Mozarteum Foundation.

This is an animated project and an extension of the individual’s own animated expression.  A combined choreography will be created as young people explore the dance-like traces of the musical works in various rooms of the Salzburg Mozarteum Foundation.
