65 years of teaching bear fruit: our graduates are award winners, recognized artists and teachers.
In March 1949 the music-loving teachers Alfred Höß, Anton Westenthaler and Franz Moser offered music school lessons, which were under the patronage of the Catholic educational organization. The focus was on the training of young musicians for church choir, salon orchestra and brass band.
When the music school was founded in 1949, Dr. Aldemar Schiffkorn, Consultant Ernst Huber, Dechant P. Walter Pühringer, Alfred Höß, Franz Moser and Anton Westenthaler deservedly made. It was headed by Rudolf Scholl, the then principal of the school, who had always tried to train music.
Due to the constantly increasing number of pupils, a local umbrella organization was necessary, and so the now newly founded music association took over the music school. Subsequently, however, the music school was detached from the music club due to financial considerations and placed under the market town of Bad Leonfelden, which took over the sponsorship according to the municipal council resolution of October 26, 1964.
After the death of Cons. Rudolf Scholl was entrusted to OSR Franz Moser with the management of the music school. The music school was able to record a great upward trend during this time and was very popular on all sides.
In 1970 Ms. Dir. Gisela Lehner took over as OSR director from Franz Moser.
In 1977 the Upper Austrian Music School Act passed by the state parliament came into force. This law created an exemplary system in Upper Austria that offers young people the opportunity to receive comprehensive musical training with highly trained teachers. The music school in Bad Leonfelden was taken over in the Upper Austrian State Music School and has been the “State Music School” since September 1st, 1977. The great upswing and the ever increasing number of students made the need for an independent music school building ever greater.
Under the direction of Ms. Dir. Gisela Lehner and thanks to the great support of Mayor Dir. Alfred Hartl and the market town of Bad Leonfelden, this project was realized in cooperation with the state of Upper Austria, and the new, contemporary school building was opened on October 9, 1998 .
Konrad Ganglberger has been director of the Bad Leonfelden State Music School since September 2007.
The branches in Oberneukirchen (since September 1, 1991, the course started on September 9, 1991) and Vorderweißenbach (since September 1, 2003, the course started on September 8, 2003) are connected to the Landesmusikschule Bad Leonfelden.
Many of the students are award winners at national and international music competitions. Some former students are now teachers themselves or work as recognized artists.
