Celje Music School is one of the best Slovene music schools and represents one of the central cultural and musically-educational foundations in the Municipality of Celje. It offers elementary and secondary music education programmes, the latter in collaboration with the Celje-Centre Grammar School. It was founded in 1908 as a branch office of Glasbena matica Ljubljana. The school has six orchestras: the Youth Symphony Orchestra, the Youth String Orchestra, the Youth Wind Orchestra, the Little String Orchestra, the Little Wind Orchestra, and the so-called Extra Band.


Music lessons are implemented in the main location and also in two separate locations – in Štore and Vojnik. More than 600 young musicians are attending various lessons. The school's goal is to follow student interests and guide them to orchestral instruments. Elementary education is divided into several stages: preschool musical education (5-year-olds), music trainee (6-year-olds), and the usual lessons (from 7 years old). All instrumental lessons are individual, theory and chamber lessons are in groups. Secondary music education – an artistic high school programme is a four-year continuing programme.

Students of Celje Music School regularly attend national and international competitions and mostly win the first prizes and a high number of points.
