Tallinn College of Music and BalletMUBA


Tallinn College of Music and Ballet, or MUBA, was established in 2022 when a new modern school building opened its doors in the heart of Estonia’s capital.

MUBA unites three historic and prestigious music and ballet schools: Tallinn Music High School, Tallinn Ballet School, and Tallinn Georg Ots Music School.

MUBA continues to embrace old traditions and, in cooperation with our students, teachers and various international collaborators, creates and cherishes all things new. 

MUBA provides a high-level specialized education and is an inspiring center for learning for young musicians and dancers who aspire to envision their future and excel in the international art community. MUBA´s teachers aim to nurture and are committed to providing professional tuition and support to MUBA´s students. During their time spent at MUBA, the students are expected to be fully focused and dedicated to their studies. Whilst passing through an intense and rich learning curve, the students will become artistically independent art professionals, with a resilient and passionate character fit for various local and international collaborations. 

At MUBA, the students are welcome to study the following disciplines.

Most of MUBA´s students are accommodated in the school`s own modern dormitory located in the same building with the school. The building also comprises a basketball court sized training hall, swimming pool, several mirrored training areas, an outdoor gym, a ball game court and a fully equipped pilates studio.

Other school’s facilities, including stages, practice rooms, and a sound studio enable students to prepare, arrange and conduct concerts and ballet performances, presenting both classical and original repertoire.

MUBA´s goal is to provide comprehensive education to young individuals who, upon their graduation, would be educated to the highest standard, who would become competitive in their chosen field and, who would excel in life in general. An important emphasis is placed on student creativity and the process of creating original work. The classical music, rhythm music and ballet students are encouraged to cooperate both during their regular lessons and joint creative projects.

MUBA students regularly participate in aforementioned institutions ́ productions and concerts.
