A year of music

INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS

A unique school for classical and folk music enthusiasts

At Orkester Efterskolen, the teenagers prefer Beethoven to Beyonce and they are offered the chance to fully immerse themselves in the world of classical music amongst like-minded contemporaries.

The small school is situated in a beautiful part of West Denmark, near the stunning North Sea coast and just 59 miles/95km from the country’s second biggest airport. The school offers three programmes: The Orchestra Programme, where students join a symphony orchestra, The Vocal Programme, where students sing both solo, and as part of a chamber choir, combined with drama lessons, and the Piano programme, where chamber music is practised. All students get weekly supervision in playing their chosen instrument.

Read the personal stories in German, English, French and Spanish.

More than music

But there’s more to Orkester Efterskolen than music – there’s the national curriculum to get through and the school gets great results. The school is aimed at 15-17 year olds, (Danish school year 9-10) and a year here is an excellent springboard for students who want to go onto study A levels or international baccalaureate.

Whenever possible the obligatory subjects are given a musical angle and the students regularly go on trips, for instance to the Royal Theatre or the Symphonic Orchestra in Copenhagen.

International programme

The school has a programme for international students. To qualify for a scholarship, the students must have a certain level of musical competence. Students should also be willing to learn some Danish. The friendly staff ensures that students, particularly foreign ones, feel part of the community. Students live in shared accommodation – eight per cottage and two per room. Everyone has to muck in when it comes to cleaning and washing the dishes. There’s no classes during the weekends and the student are free to go home, but many choose to stay, as there’s a variety of activities on offer.

A recurring comment from past and present students is, that they really enjoy being part of a community where everyone shares the same interest – an interest that isn’t all that common amongst teenagers.

So wether you want a career in classical music or just enjoy playing music and fancy a change of scenery, a year at Orkester Efterskolen is ideal for any young music lover.

Kære Pernille, Karen og Sussi - det er os, der siger tak. På alle måder. Tak for de gode ord - og rigtig dejlig sommer 🙂

Dejligt at få lov til at være med på sidelinjen endnu et år - sidste år som forældre til Roald - og i år som “weekend-forældre” for Christian Schubert. Fantastisk efterskole 👍👍👍 “Thank you for the music...”

Vi er så taknemmelige og imponerede over alt det I har givet til de unge mennesker. Det er noget ganske særligt og fint, som de nu kan tage med på deres videre rejse. Tusind tak.....

Tusind, tusind tak for den dejligste musik og sang. Som forældre kunne vi ikke ønske os mere af et efterskoleår, end hvad I har givet. Sikke et privilegium, at I findes.
