The Mozart conservatory, in partnership with the Ateliers des Beaux-Arts (National School of Fine Arts) in Paris offers a place where the different arts can come into contact.
Finally, the reform of the French school timetable has allowed the conservatory to reach out to pupils in the schools of the first 4 arrondissements of Paris and offer them choral workshops (16 choirs were created in September 2013) and also 6 dance workshops, 1 string orchestra, 1 brass band, 2 percussion workshops, 2 wind ensembles.
