In addition to weekly course activities, there are events and masterclass classes from other professionals in the field. There is no genre limit to the courses, you can come exactly as you are and play the style of music that suits you!
The course is generally open all year round, according to Tiivistämö’s general opening hours. You can jump in whenever you wish, as despite group activities, the instruction is also strongly focused on the individual.
