Continuous education

Classe Ensemble Antiga

Continuing education courses are designed for those individuals who do not fit the profile of undergraduate students, or who have already completed their undergraduate studies and want to improve some aspect related to their professionalization as a performer, or as a professional in conducting and composition.

To access these courses, interested individuals must provide evidence of a minimum musical education equivalent to a medium-level degree. In some cases, they may also need prior training and experience in that particular field, or demonstrate their performance level through a video recording. Additionally, the teaching staff may also require an audition and/or interview.

Classes are taught on an individual basis, with the frequency and schedule agreed upon by the students and teachers, and in accordance with the availability of classrooms in the centre. Some courses can be complemented with an interpretative project or one related to the instrument, if applicable.


At the end of the continuing education course, enrolled individuals obtain a certificate of attendance and achievement indicating the teaching staff who taught the course the number of instructional hours, and, if applicable, the instrument for which this training was taken.
