The Liszt School of Music Weimar (in German: Hochschule für Musik Franz Liszt Weimar) is a famous academy of music in Weimar, Germany.

The Hochschule

Franz Liszt, who spent a great deal of his life in Weimar, encouraged the founding of a school in 1835 for the education of musicians in orchestral instruments. It was his student Carl Müllerhartung who realized Liszt's dream, founding the school on June 24th, 1872. The school offers programs in all orchestral instruments, piano, conducting and composition.


The school is located in several different buildings in the centre of Weimar.


The Hochschule offers courses in all musical disciplines, including composition, conducting, jazz, musical theatre and pedagogy at undergraduate and postgraduate level.
