Our music school, over thirty years old and named after the world-famous cymbalom player Aladár Rácz (1886-1958), is located in a beautiful, quiet, easily available suburban district in Budapest. In September 2001, our school moved into a new building with sound-isolated teaching rooms, outdoor concetr facilities, and a concert hall for an audience of ca. 150 complete with air conditioning and studio equipment. For our programs attaching large audiences (500-600 people), we use the Erzsébetliget Theatre wich is just round the corner from our main building. Our staff consists of more than fifty music teachers teaching around a thousand students in over twenty subjects. Our teachers and students play and perform in 15 different ensembles of the School on a regular basis. We organize various competitions, courses, and masterclasses some of wich have already attracted internaitonal attention. Just a few of our guest professors: pianists Dimitri Bashkirov and Csaba Király, singer Sylvia Geszty, saxophone player Michiel Oldenkamp, jazz musician Károly Binder, and many others. Our students keep winning prizes at national competitions and seem to move towards international recognition, as e.g. our string and wind orchestras have done in Belgium in 1999 and 2001. We run a great number of exchange projects with youth orchestras and ensembles from all over the world (USA, Mexico, Brasil, Japan, Israel etc.) and have strong connections to and an intensive exchange schedule with several music schools in Europe (Norway, Denmark, Holland, Belgium, Germany, Switzerland, Russia, Poland, Croatia etc.).
