I can see a lot of different ways to map a music school.

  • amenity=music_school ( 107 objects)
  • education=music (68 objects)
  • training=music (24 objects)
  • shop=music (2327 objects)
  • shop=musical_instrument (1687 objects)
  • amenity=studio (1629 objects)
  • type=audio (389 objects)

What's your recommended way ?

Half of your mentioned tags obviously won't define a music school: shop=music, shop=musical_instrument and (a single) type=audio clearly don't define a school. Likewise amenity=studio just seems wrong.

So the remaining tags are amenity=music_school, education=music and training=music.

training has just a pretty empty proposal whereas both amenity=music_school and education=music are suggested in the german, indonesian and polish "how to map a" wiki pages. amenity=music_school is also quite similar to amenity=school and amenity=driving_school whereas education seems to be the better category.

My recommendation is to add both amenity=music_school and education=music for now.
