Dear lute player and lute friend,

I am pleased to announce the good news that in the school year 2022 the LUTE  (in Hungarian LANT) will be officially included among the instruments that can be taught/learned as an instrument of equal status in Hungarian music education.

Everything is now available for the study of the lute: coursebook, textbooks, instruments, institution, interest and the official lute syllabus, which can be found on the website of the Education Office:

– classical music – lute (klasszikus zene – lant): p. 365-375.

I have been lobbying for this for more than a quarter of a century, and on this long journey many have encouraged, supported and helped me, how and where they could. Many thanks to all those who have stood by me.

About Lute Books see link – on page below. The books are only in Hungarian.

The first LUTE CLASS, which will start in September 2022 at the Szabolcsi Bence Music School in Budapest ( ), the current lute centre of the Carpathian Basin, is already full.

Following in the footsteps of Bálint Bakfark (Brasov), Hans Newsidler (Bratislava) and Sebestyén Tinódi Lantos (Košice), we will continue the lute work in their spirit.
