The Academy offers the highest quality education due to: high rank specialists who teach master classes of instruments, composition, eurhythmics, choreography and music therapy, experienced teachers who deliver lectures and offer classes on the theory of music. The programme of studies is often enriched with extra master courses, seminars, workshops, or lectures (many of them run by visiting professors from renowned institutions from all over the world).

The Academy of Music is located in a historic palace which adds a timeless charm and creates a unique atmosphere to study and perform. At the same time, the Academy modernizes and develops its infrastructure for better comfort of present and future students. In October 2013 there was an official opening of a newly built Concert Hall with great acoustics, superior recording and sound system equipment, a professional recording studio and a large didactic base. At the beginning of the academic year 2014/2015, in a close proximity of the palace, we opened a modern new building of the Regional Centre for Culture, Education and Music Documentation which will significantly broaden educational and cultural offer of the institution. On four floors of the new building one may find: a chamber hall for 200 people, a library and recording library, a recording studio, a sound laboratory, numerous exercise rooms and lecture halls.
