Educational programmes

The path to one’s own sound

Educational programme in English for lower secondary schools

On a tour through the rooms of the centre, we will get an overview of Arvo Pärt’s life and work. We will listen to a few of Arvo Pärt’s pieces together and look at the composer’s musical manuscripts. We will also follow the birth of a composition from the first ideas to the finished work and its performance, together reflecting on composing music and searches for sound.

The programme lasts for two hours. There is a 300-metre forest path leading from the parking lot to the building. Please consider this in your schedule and dress accordingly.

Our educational programmes are run upon pre-registration, on Thursdays and Fridays from 10:00 to 13:00. If necessary, we can be flexible and will try to consider your wishes.

Price: 6 euros per student; free of charge for the teacher accompanying the group.

We are looking forward to welcoming you!

On August 7 and 8, we recommend driving to the center through Keila, as the Ironman competition taking place that weekend, will close a large part of Paldiski mnt and the road between Keila-Joa and Vääna.
