– your have an asylum procedure in progress in Belgium;

If you were already enrolled in a music school through The Sound of Home in 2017-2018, then you may automatically re-enrol, even if you no longer meet the conditions for enrolment. However, re-enrolling is necessary because your 2017-2018 enrolment will not be automatically renewed.
