The Conservatorio de Musica de Alcañiz, or the Alcañiz School of Music, is one of the most renowned music academies in Spain. The school opened in 1982 under the direction of Ms. Maria Luisa Martinez Serrano. It began with three teachers, who were soon joined by several other instructors as new musical specialties were added and the enrollment began to grow.
From 1982 to1985, what is now known as the Conservatorio de Musica de Alcañiz was academically supervised by the Conservatory of Music in Zaragoza, and between 1985 and 1987 the school was attached to the Conservatory of Music of Teruel.
The school became known as the Conservatorio de Musica de Alcañiz in 1987. Its activation was authorized by a city order on September 25, 1987, authorizing lessons in Music Theory, Set Coral, Piano, Violin, Cello, Guitar, Clarinet and Trumpet. Several other training classes have been introduced and implemented over the years, making the school one of the largest of its kind in Spain.
