Short History of the Faculty of Music
Following the great flood in 1879 thy rebuilding of Szeged started to gather pace, parallel to which music training in the town started to develop. The Town School of Music, founded by Viktor Langer, was led by composer and musician Endre Szögi between 1883 and 1903. This period involved the increase in subjects and the number of students alike at the school. Higher education was introduced following the six year training at the music school, hence students could refine their knowledge on a higher level. In 1904 the Town School of Music invited the distinguished musician, Péter Király-König, who became a leading figure in the musical life of Szeged for decades, thanks to his musical and organizer skills. In the school year 1905/1906 new organizational rules were introduced going by the curriculum of the Hungarian Royal Academy of Music in Budapest. Thus the musical education of Szeged became the most modern spirited among the regional cities. Király-König hired new staff to handle the increased number of classes. He started double bass, french horn and clarinet as free departments.
In 1983 the Franz Liszt Academy of Music permitted the launch of academic training in the 3rd, 4th and 5th years, acknowledging the high level of training of string instruments. In the following years another fifteen courses gained rights for an academic level.
In 1990 the Ministry of Culture endorsed the organizational and operational regulations of the Franz Liszt Academy of Music, accordingly the institution became a Conservatory of Music.
In 1996 the general board of the the Franz Liszt Academy of Music in Budapest, decide that both conservatories of the country could carry out academic education in all licensed departments in the first three years. The mentioned regulation secures annual interoperability between college and university level training. Ensuring that students could obtain university or college degree based on his/her talents and achievements.
The Conservatory left the Academy of Music in 1998, and operated as the founding member of the Higher Education Alliance of Szeged until 1st January, 2000. At that point it became the self-sufficing educational unit of the freshly established University of Szeged.
Following the successful faculty accreditation on 1st September, 2003, the institution went on to operate as the 11th faculty at University of Szeged. The faculty now educates teachers and performers of chamber music on collage level, and performing artists and teacher.
The Faculty of Music, which had operated as part of the Franz Liszt Academy of Music till 1998, carries out it’s professional tasks today based on the traditions of Hungarian music teaching. It fills a decisive role in the musical life of Szeged and its surroundings, as it maintains a high quality education and artistic performances.

在1879年大洪水之后开始加快步伐重建塞格德城市的同时，城里的音乐培训也开始了发展。由Viktor Langer建立的城市音乐学校在1883和1903年之间由作曲家和音乐家Endre Szögi管理。在此期间学校的课程和学生的人数都在不断增长。完成在音乐学校6年的培训后可以继续接受高等学院的培训，因此学生们可以更高层次的完善自己的知识。在1904年城市音乐学校邀请到了著名的音乐家Péter Király-König，凭借优秀的音乐和组织能力，他几十年里都是塞格德市音乐业内的领袖人物。在1905/1906学年，伴随着布达佩斯的匈牙利皇家音乐学院课程的进行，新的组织规则得到了传播。因此塞格德的音乐教育成为当时此区域中最具现代气息的典范。因学生不断地增加，Király-König不断地招聘新的教师。他开始免费传授低音提琴，圆号和黑管课程。
