Academic life

The main focus of our school's curriculum is the choral singing. As a secondary subject each pupils is required to study one of the following instruments: piano, violin, accordion, organ, harp, kanklės (traditional Lithuanian instrument) or flute. Gregorian chant is also an important part in the curriculum. For those who choose to study violin, there are two paths available – classical or an innovative Suzuki method, developed by the acclaimed Japanese music teacher Sinichi Suzuki.

„Cantores David” is a name for our school's joint choir, which is made of six different choir groups:

• Puerili (early education group) • Pueri I – children age 7-10 years • Pueri II – children age 7-10 years • Juniores (Pastoralė) – girls choir • Seniores (Giesmė) – young adults • Improvises – free improvisation group

School life

A typical day in our school starts at 13.20 pm when the first music lesson of the day begins. Children arrive one by one (or sometimes in small groups) mostly from the local schools. Till the last session of the day at 20.00 pm, there will be sounds heard in the classrooms and corridors, sounds of various instruments (piano, harp, violin etc.), as well as singing, chanting and bursts of laughter...

There is a chapel in the attic, where the Holy Mass is celebrated on special occasions and daily prayer group gathers for moments of quiet recollection.

On Sundays you can hear us singing at the Mass (10.30am) in the Cathedral Basilica of Kaunas, which is also located in the heart of Kaunas Old Town.
