At AMADEUS – International School of Music VIENNA, we want to build bridges from East to West and from North to South. Our solid base for this endeavor is education and music. We aim to close the gaps between different traditions and diverse lifestyles, to connect young people from all nations in their longing for a world built on peace, cultural respect, creativity and a sustainable tomorrow.

Our vision is to offer Vienna’s first boarding school for musically gifted students from around the world, providing an outstanding education on two fronts: academic and classical music. The language of instruction is English, but children remain connected to their home language and culture through Asian language courses. At AMADEUS – International School of Music VIENNA, the teaching faculty consists of the most talented and passionate teachers that Vienna, the world’s capital of classical music, has to offer. At the same time they enjoy an outstanding education in accordance with the stringent IB programme, which preserves their chances to opt for a non-musical course of study at any of the world’s top universities.

As a school that is part of the Nobel Education Network (, we at AMADEUS VIENNA firmly believe in a world of flourishing possibilities where everyone’s creativity is liberated to advance the development of humankind. Everyone has unique talents, which, if nurtured, can contribute to global prosperity.

AMADEUS VIENNA builds and promotes a holistic education system that educates and develops the whole person.

AMADEUS VIENNA wants to give every child whatever they need to find and fulfill their potential, and choose and achieve their mission in life. In our school, all students grow into roles that allow them to have a profound and positive impact on society. We guide the formation of character, giving children the will and courage to tackle the unknown ahead. At AMADEUS, teachers passionately believe that each student can find his or her potential and ensure that it is developed to its maximum. This is possible only in a setting with the best working conditions and ubiquitous brilliance and expertise. AMADEUS – International School of Music VIENNA provides such an environment.
