Did you know that?
In ancient Greek mythology, the Muses are nine ancient deities, daughters of Zeus and Mnemosyne. The god Apollo was their leader (Apollo Musagetes). The Muse of Music (the art of playing the flute) was Euterpe (from "eu" meaning well and "terpo" meaning delight, I please).
The music schools of Greece (49 in number) are public secondary education schools specializing in music lessons. The first school of this kind established in Greece is the Music Gymnasium-Lyceum of Pallini, which began its operation in 1988. The Music School of Argolis is located in the village of Prosymna, in Argos.
