Country Notes:

Cyprus is currently divided into the larger southern area, with a predominantly Greek Cypriot population and the smaller northern sector inhabited primarily by Turkish Cypriots. A separate entry sets out information on music programs in the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus (see ‘Cyprus [Turkish]’). Music is a required subject in primary schools in Cyprus. Large schools may employ a specialised music teacher, but smaller ones require the class teacher to give music instruction.
