This Conservatory is unique in that it enrols mostly visually handicapped students. It comprises both a secondary school and a conservatory for specialised music study. Entry is by audition and students enter at age 15, completing Maturitá after five years. Two further years lead to the diploma (Absolutorium). The piano tuning/repairing program takes two years. Currently over 92% of graduate students are in full employment. Language of instruction is Czech. There is a collection of instruments for loan to students.
