Event details

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 along with the basic skill learnings. The original workshops will go public in the end. Therefore, the program is more practical than the normal lectures.
