It all started in 1479 with organization of the chorus of Tzar's Singing Prince's Scribes which was renamed in 1701 to the Court Chorus and finally in 1763 named the Emperor Court Singing Capella. In 1738 the emperor order established for the needs of the Capella the first professional musical school, then in 1740 the other emperor order assigned for young students the obligational education in using the orchestra musical instruments. That educational course was many times cut until the 19th century.
