Its predecessor, the Evangelisches Kirchenmusikalisches Institut Heidelberg in Heidelberg, was founded in 1931 by Meinhard Hermann Poppen to improve the training of church musicians for the Evangelical Church in Baden. It was modeled after the institute in Leipzig, where Poppen had previously studied with its founder, organist Karl Straube.
After Poppens death in 1956, organist Herbert Haag was the director until 1973, succeeded by Wolfgang Herbst, Hermann Schaeffer, and since 2006 Bernd Stegmann.
