Advantages of émr
The emr is a quality school, open to all, providing recognised teaching by qualified teachers. Communal and cantonal support, regulated by the LEM (Law on music schools), allows students to benefit from reduced fees. The city can help parents to pay the fees by granting generous allowances on request.
The purpose of the LEM, which came into force in August 2012, is to structure non-professional music studies and to organise the musical offer in the canton:
- It provides students with access to quality basic music education throughout Vaud, in schools recognised for this purpose.
- It establishes the basis for the financing of non-professional music education by dividing it between the public authorities (Canton and cities) and the parents of the students, and by harmonising the school fees at cantonal level.
- It also aims to bring teachers’ working conditions and salaries up to standard.
