Our philosophy & history

In 1972, Jean Roderes, luxembourgish song writer, composer and musician created a private music school in the “rue d’Anvers” in Luxemburg: the “Pop-Music-School Jean Roderes”. It was the first school of music allowing to learn instruments like electric guitar, drum-set or bass guitar, as well as traditional instruments such as piano, flute or accordion. It was an innovation in Luxemburg and the success was immediate. Soon the buildings were too small and the "Pop-Music-School Jean Roderes" opened a branch with Esch/Alzette.

In 1983, Jean Roderes yielded the school to Rene Wagener and it became the “Centre Audio-Visuel d’Enseignement Musical” (CAVEM) s.à r.l. (Audio-visual Center of Musical Teaching). A new address was quickly found in the “rue Duchscher” in Luxemburg. At that moment the school had 4 rooms in Luxemburg and one room in Esch/Alzette. Thanks to its immense success the school was obliged to move into vaster buildings in the “rue des Trévires” in Bonnevoie where it had 7 classrooms and a store for partitions and small music items. In 1994 a second room was added to Esch/Alzette and in 1995 a branch was opened in Ettelbruck, which has 2 classrooms.

Today 22 teachers offer music lessons to more than 750 students.

Cavem is the only school in the Grand-Duchy of Luxembourg to teach all styles of music, with an excellent reputation and has become the place to be for music lovers. The team of teachers is composed by active musicians, performing either solo, in bands or in orchestras.

The school currently offers lessons for the following instruments: piano, keyboard, synthesizer, organ, electric and acoustic guitar, accordion, bass guitar, drums and pop singing.
The goal of the school is to teach musicians to perform either as a soloist, or with a band.
The modern and dynamic teaching methods of the music school CAVEM will allow starters and confirmed musicians to find the needed knowledge for their musical goals.
