The elementary music school Biskupská has originated from a Prague music school that was opened shortly after the WWII. Gradually, the school started to establish its individual branches, which have later been developed into independent elementary music schools. In 1947, the school has moved into a building near Bílá Labuť, where it resides until today.
ZUŠ Biskupská has three departments – the music department, the department of fine arts, and the department of literary drama. The pupils of the school are of all ages – preschool, elementary school and secondary school students are systematically musically educated and prepared for their subsequent studies at various art schools. ZUŠ Biskupská is also oriented on educating amateur semi-professional artists, for whom the art is just a hobby.
Within the music department, the pupils of ZUŠ Biskupská can choose to learn the piano, violin, cello, double bass, harp, accordion, keyboard, recorder, flute, guitar, electric guitar, clarinet, trumpet, trombone, French horn, and the percussion instruments, as well as they can attend solo singing or choir singing lessons. Along with Big band Biskupská, there are two string orchestras and a mixed choir in the school.
The students of ZUŠ Biskupská are frequently awarded in various competitions, Czech or international ones. ZUŠ Biskupská has also prepared many famous Czech artists and performers for their professional career. In the 2015/2016 school year, the school has been attended by 750 students.
