A private music school founded in 1919 by the pianist Alfred Cortot and located in central Paris in a classified historic building. Former faculty members include such celebrities as Nadia Boulanger, Pablo Casals, Wanda Landowska, Paul Dukas, Arthur Honegger and Charles Munch. The École normale gives professional music training to prospective performers and to a limited extent to prospective studio piano teachers. The program is organised into cycles. Following cycles 1, 2 and 3 students are admitted to the three-year professional cycle, entry being by audition, regardless of age, and level of entry is decided at this stage. Students at the highest level are prepared for international competitions. The school organises a stage fright management workshop and physiotherapy for students. It issues books of studies for various instruments. Single study programs are available for adult amateur musicians. Classes are also held for young performers from age 14, with instruction in performance, solfège, music history and chamber music. Classes introducing young children to music (from age 4) are also available. A program of physiotherapy for musicians is offered. There are close relations with the Bibliothèque Gustav Mahler.
