One of the most important aspects of the musical practice is the ability to perform collectively, working as a system within the context of a common beat, a range of dynamics, the uniformity of articulations and a common overall sense of expression.

Based on a click track with a harmonic and melodic guide, students recorded a real instrument or a digital one via MIDI, in order to participate in the performance.

In the long term, we are projecting to publish a video playlist of students’ performances which take upon different musical styles.
