Welcome to the Gugak National Middle & High School homepage!

'Gugak'(국악) is the Korean word for Korean traditional music and dance. The mission of Gugak National Middle & High School is to provide the highest calibre of artistic education for gifted musicians, dancer, theorists and composers from around Korea, so that they may achieve their fullest potential as artists, leaders and global citizens.

Korea has a long history, and so does our school!

Gugak National Middle & High School was founded in 1951 and has been producing prominent musicians and dancers for more than 60 years. The school has been built upon the following three guiding principles: determination, realization and goodwill.

Gugak National Middle & High School originated from the tradition of the following educational institutes which not only taught, but also propagated Korean traditional music and dance: Eumseongseo in the Silla Kingdom, Aakseo in the Goryeo Dynasty, and Jangakwon and Aakbuwon in the Joseon Dynasty. Our deep roots have helped us grow into an exemplary school of Korean traditional music and dance.

Paving our future!

Creativity is the key to making Korea more competitive in the 21st century. Our goal is to educate our students to become innovative leaders in the field of Korean traditional musin and dance. in order to make this a reality, we are preparing our students to play an active role in making our traditional music and dance known around the world.

There are no miracles in the world of the arts!

Nothing is achieved accidentally in the world of the arts. The entire faculty at our school is devoted to stimulating our students, through consistent practice and improvement, to continually develop and spread our traditional music and dance. May our students reach their full potential as artists and may 'Gugak' resonate throughout the world!
