The latter will place the premises at 45, C/. Colón to the association’s disposal. The association wants to propagate alternative music and its instruments. They want to teach students how to play instruments which are not taught at the municipality´s professional conservatoire, such as drums, electrical guitar, keyboard, modern vocals or electrical bass guitar. Carlos Morillas explained that Fusió Musical offers liberal teaching open to everybody 6 years or older and interested in learning how to play the drums, electrical guitar, keyboard, modern singing or electrical bass guitar. It is not necessary to have any knowledge in music, the only thing they ask for is a lot of spirit and motivation. It is all about the real thing, live experience, a bidirectional communication of teacher vs student. The teacher has not the leading part and is flexible, acts more like a guide and is a source of information. It is called workshop as it wants to gather fans of modern music, who care about this type of music and who are ready to experience alternative teaching methods.
