At this address are two distinct institutions, the Koninklijk Muziekconservatorium van Brussel (Flemish-speaking - outlined above), and the Conservatoire Royal de Musique de Bruxelles (French-speaking - see separate entry). This Flemish-speaking division forms part of the Erasmus University College Brussels and is a partner in the Universitaire Associatie Brussel. Viola da gamba and baroque flute are specialisations in the Flemish-speaking section. Entry to all courses is by audition. Languages of instruction are Dutch and English. There is a museum of instruments with a large collection of both traditional and Western classical instruments from most areas of the world as well as a number of sound recordings of traditional music.
