About


In 1919 composer Juozas Naujalis founded the music school of Kaunas. This school was acknowledged as a school of higher education and in 1933 was reorganised into the Conservatoire of Kaunas. 1933 is therefore considered to be the founding year of the current Lithuanian Academy of Music and Theatre. In 1949 the Conservatoire of Kaunas and the Conservatoire of Vilnius (founded in 1945) were merged into the Lithuanian State Conservatoire. In 1992 the Conservatoire was renamed into the Lithuanian Academy of Music (LMA), and in 2004 – the Lithuanian Academy of Music and Theatre (LMTA).
Lithuanian Academy of Music and Theatre is competitive and modern platform for education, science and art, annually providing meaningful experience to national and world culture. The Academy builds it‘s future on past achievements and precious traditions, constantly generating innovative ideas and adapting it to the needs of the community.
