Electronic creation from nature sounds | Workshop by Microfusa
MicroFusa, School of Musical Tecnology and Sound
The MicroFusa School has a wide variety of courses and qualifications, each with different timetables and duration. In a short period of time, the students meet classmates with diverse knowledge and similar concerns with whom they can share and collaborate in present and, who knows, future projects.
At Microfusa, training is the key. That is why you will find a well-prepared teaching staff, with a high degree of experience in the subject and a great desire to teach. The students can get a very high performance from the theoretical and practical classes, where they will find good explanations and demonstrations.
At Microfusa we support the initiatives and projects of our students. We listen to those who have proposals, ideas, works? We understand that starting is not easy, but if we get an opportunity to do an internship in a company, a collaboration, a job... we will move forward to make it happen. We cannot guarantee the success of everyone, but we can guarantee that today there are many professionals in our sector who have gone through our training system.
