Kumulus is the place to be for amateur artists in Maastricht and the surrounding area.  

Kumulus temporarily closed

Due to the lockdown, the Kumulus buildings in the Herbenusstraat and at St. Maartenspoort will remain closed until 16 May. Our courses and other activities cannot take place during this period, except for individual music lessons. These are given online in consultation with your teacher.

If applicable, missed lessons will be settled at the end of the course season according to our Algemene Bepalingen. The right to a refund applies from the 3rd cancelled lesson in a course year. For short courses of fewer than 20 lessons, there is a right to a refund from the second cancelled lesson. The payments continue because we can only calculate the number of lessons that will be refunded after the course season has ended.  

Of course we will be on the lookout for alternatives and will keep you informed via our newsletter, website and social media. 

We do miss the physical presence of our students and hope to be able to resume our lessons and activities soon after 16 May! 
Any questions? Please feel free to contact us at or 043-3505600. Customer service is available from Monday to Friday from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm.

Art education for everyone

The five art schools of Kumulus provide creative education in music, visual arts, dance and theatre. Every school offers a wide range of high quality courses you can choose from, always taught by experienced and professional teachers who also know their craft inside out.

The music, visual arts and dance schools welcome non-Dutch speakers, with art itself being the language spoken and the instructors possessing a high level of English. In our theatre lessons we ask for a C1 level of Dutch, as the courses are reliant on reading, writing and gaining instructions in Dutch.

Kumulus has about 2,500 students attending long and short courses as well as workshops and day sessions. Students are regularly given the opportunity to show their work or demonstrate their talent. 

Getting started


You can register for your chosen course or workshop via this website. Just ask a friend, colleague or neighbour to help you out, you might even learn some new Dutch words! If you are not a current Kumulus student, you will be asked to create a new account. The My Kumulus application will guide you through the registration process (in Dutch).

Upon choosing a course, you will be able to see whether there are places available and if so you can progress with your registration. If the course is full (vol) you have two options: you ask to be placed on the waiting list, or by completing your details we can advise you on a suitable alternative to your first choice.

If you have any questions regarding the registration, please contact +31 (0)43 350 5600. Our customer service will be happy to help.

Prices and discounts

Our rates are subsidised by Maastricht Council. Prices for lessons that take place in a classroom setting are based on the number of participants per course. Some courses are more expensive due to the materials used during the lessons. When following music lessons, the prices for individual lessons are calculated on the duration of the lesson. When joining a group music lessons you will notice that they are reduced in price.

Students up to 25 years of age receive a discount of 25%. This way we can encourage the young people of Maastricht and the surrounding area to get involved in arts and culture. For those who have a tighter budget, subsidies can be requested via Jeugdcultuurfonds or through your local council. Check with your local council for more information and eligibility.
