The Preucil School of Music is a non-profit, certified member of the National Guild of Community Schools of the Arts, serving 750 students with a 25 member faculty. Founded in 1975, the Preucil School evolved from a Suzuki method violin program established in 1963 by Doris Preucil. The curriculum includes lessons in strings and piano, theory, pedagogy, ensembles, and an early childhood education program.
The School is housed in two locations. The Main Campus, an Iowa City landmark, is housed in an historic Czechoslovakian Hall built in 1900. The Preucil School of Music North Campus and Morris Early Childhood Education Center is a new facility built in 2002. Iowa City is a cultural haven in the midst of farmland, 200 miles west of Chicago. Home of the University of Iowa, the city has a population of 62,000 plus 29,000 University students.
