The Pre-College Cologne programme, a training centre for musically gifted children and young people, was established at the Hochschule für Musik und Tanz Köln during the 2005/2006 winter semester. Here, school students from the age of 10 receive specialist performance training from the professors and lecturers at the Hochschule für Musik und Tanz across its locations in Aachen, Cologne and Wuppertal. Since the 2009/2010 winter semester, the programme has included all of the instrumental options offered under the University’s performance programmes. Prof. Ute Hasenauer is the director of the Pre-College Cologne programme.
