The Spandauer Kirchenmusikschule (Spandau school of church music) was a music academy in Spandau, Berlin, Germany, where composer Ernst Pepping was an influential teacher. It was housed in the "Heinrich-Schütz-Haus" in Spandau and was closed in 1998. The schools choir appeared as the Spandauer Kantorei.
The last director was Martin Behrmann, who published a Handbuch für Chorleitung (manual for choral conducting). Students of the Spandauer Kirchenmusikschule formed the base of the Spandauer Kantorei (Spandau chorale), a mixed choir which presented numerous concerts and radio broadcasts in Berlin.
Notable teachers included composers Hugo Distler and Heinz Werner Zimmermann, his wife Renate Zimmermann, the organists Heinz Lohmann and Karl Hochreither, composer Winfried Radeke and the conductors Hanns-Martin Schneidt and Helmuth Rilling (until 1966).
