Conservatoire Royal De Brussels

The Conservatoire Royal de Bruxelles originally opened in 1813 as a singing school under the Napoleonic Empire in Bruxelles, and was subsequently a Royal School of Music, founded in 1826 by William I of the Netherlands, and the school has officially existed in its present form since 1832. As an insitution offering university-level education in music and theatre, the Conservatoire acquired its royal status, amongst other reasons, thanks to the international status of successive directors such as François-Joseph Fétis, François-Auguste Gevaert, Edgar Tinel or Joseph Jongen.
