Do you want to nurture your creative side? Perhaps, music can be the way. There are various methods from theory and performance to singing and playing. The choice is yours.
Barcelona offers many music schools that teach history, theory of music and performance. Here are two that really make the grade!
The Municipal School of Music of Barcelona was created on March 2nd, 1886, by the city of Barcelona.
Until the 2000’s, this was the only public center of Catalonia that taught top grade music lessons. The Conservatory stopped granting degree studies to provide courses only to professional musicians.
Offering classes on over twenty instruments from the accordion to violoncello, and signing, the school has open courses, workshops and master classes, along with its regular courses. The school organizes year around concerts from its students.

Their curriculum based in Classical/Contemporary Music, Jazz/Modern Music, Early Music, Traditional Music, Pedagogy, Theory/Composition and Conducting, Musicology, Sonology and Production/Management will focus on what you are looking for. They first opened their doors in September 2001, giving them an overall enriching education. With a small enrollment of under 800 students (in both undergraduate and master´s), the school offers summer course as well for the general public.
