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

Art education for everyone

The five art schools of Kumulus provide creative education in music, visual arts, dance, theatre and writing. 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 and writing schools, 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

Kumulus Kick Off (Next Kick Off: August 2019)

We always start the new season with an open day, our Kick Off. This is usually organised in and around our building on Herbenusstraat. You can try what we have on offer; take part in one of many workshops, watch our current students perform, talk to our teachers and staff, enjoy a drink and something to eat.

Trial lesson

If you were impressed by our Kumulus Kick Off, or after exploring our website you would like to sample a lesson for yourself, you can contact us for attending a proefles (trial lesson). At our dance school a trial lesson is built into the curriculum to enable you to see what level and which discipline you would like to begin with. Contact our customer service team for a proefles at


You can register for your chosen course or workshop via this website. At present the registration form is only available in Dutch. It will soon also be available in English. 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 need our help with your registration, please contact +31 (0)43 350 5669 (Music) or +31 (0)43 350 5656  (Visual Arts / Theatre / Writing / Dance).

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.
