The body charged with fostering musical talent in Canton Lucerne (Talentförderung Musik Kanton Luzern TMLU) provides particularly talented pupils with support for their musical and personal development. They not only receive intensive musical training on their instrument at their music school, but also participate in a supplementary programme specially developed by the Lucerne School of Music. This health-promoting programme is aimed at making the young people aware of how they use their bodies while playing their instruments. It imparts comprehensive skills via topics such as «understanding music», «music and the body», «making music and practising» and «making music together».
In doing so, the programme prepares young musicians for the demands of a professional career in music and strengthens their personality as well as their music-making pleasure for the long term.
