Boosting Student Employability

GENERAL INFORMATION

Since its founding Taller de Músics has been developing a unique and comprehensive artist mentoring project to accompany students from the music classroom to the stage. Students develop their musical careers in a creative, dynamic and innovative environment, both from a pedagogical point of view and from a professional perspective.

The school strives to maximise student employability and facilitate insertion into the labour market and the promotion of artists though the booking of musicians from the school at festivals and varied music events; the promotion of jam sessions and of big bands made up of Taller de Músics students; the organisation of work sessions with prominent professionals from the music industry: the promoting of collaborations in social and artistic projects and the internationalisation of students’ music projects.
