Playing music is not only fun, it sharpens the senses and brings us together. If you would like to learn a musical instrument, the Allgemeine Musikschule Oberwallis (AMO), l'EJMA (Ecole de Jazz et de Musique Actuelle) and the Conservatoire offer professional lessons. These include parent-child singing courses, music lessons for young children and private lessons for selected musical instruments.

Summer holiday activities
The youth centres organise various projects that offer meaningful leisure activities for young people. A popular and proven project is the Holiday Pass, which is offered alternately by district. During the summer holidays, the pass offers children from years 3H to 8H various experiences in the region, such as visiting the fire brigade, mask carving in the Lötschental valley, and alpaca trekking.
