Another year, another great opportunity to learn from the best. Don’t miss this semester’s Collab Music event! On Saturday, January 30th you will have the chance to learn valuable musical skills in the realm of musical collaboration.

Effective learning strategies for musicians. A discussion on neurology, habits, willpower, approach to learning and practicing. This lecture is the product of an innovative class that Dr. Otamendi teaches at Louisiana State University every fall, and it aims to increase the student’s efficiency when learning music or any other material.
