MY MISSION AS DIRECTOR
My mission is to support the musical development of those who practice and interpret with us, regardless of their level of experience. Therefore, we make sure to find a place for each student and performer in a concert, musical group, band or choir, whose level of exigency is adjusted to their level of experience.
Groups are made and rehearsed in structured learning environments, and each has the advantage of having musical experts, while singing or playing a level similar to yours. In this way, they have the possibility to perform representations several times a year.
In addition, we offer workshops and classes, aware of the need to professionalize musical arts, and contribute to the training of our students in the social skills that prepare them for the future.
