About the program

Workshop leaders, who have the key role leading the participants of workshops, are required to have not only musical talents but also various abilities such as high communication or self-expression skills. Under the direction of workshop leaders from Casa da Música who are the international leading experts of this field, the program offers opportunities to create original workshops by groups which are going to be released to public based on the basic skill learnings. Therefore, the program is more practical than the normal lectures. We look forward to meeting you who are passionate to take a role to connect people with music in the society which is becoming more diverse than ever!
