The Conservatorio  Profesional de Música de Huelva "Javier Perianes" is a music centre dedicated to teaching as well as holding musical performances. It was inaugurated by the class of 1986/1987 with a very small faculty of teachers as well as a small number of students not exceeding 86.

Initially, the instruments that could be learnt at the centre were nothing more than guitar, piano, violin and cello.The first building of the music centre was built under guidance of the Diputación Provincial de Huelva. After ten years, a new building (which is the current centre) was constructed ready for the class of 2001/2002.

Over the years, both the faculty of teachers and students, as well as the specialties that can be studied in the centre, have increased considerably to 60 teachers and more than 750 students. Instruments includeclarinet, double bass, bassoon, flute, guitar, flamenco guitar, oboe, percussion, piano, saxophone, trombone, trumpet, tuba, violin and cello.

Many students from the Conservatorio Profesional de Música de Huelva have reached the highest level in the different fields of music as well as conductors and teachers. To mention one of them, Javier Perianes, graduated the centre becoming a pianist of recognized national and international fame.

During the academic year 2011/2012, on its 25th anniversary, it was decided to name the centre after the former student, great pianist Javier Perianes.
