BEING AN #EMMA STUDENT

EMMA was not only the first school in Portugal to exclusively use modern methodology. At EMMA ideas come first! EMMA students were the first in Portugal to perform stadium concerts, do International Workshops in Modern Music with the Slash/Joss Stone producer, to have an album with student’s music released at FNAC, partnerships with English Universities to continue your studies, and even the first Professional Course in Modern Music in the country. Our Alumni and students have entered Music Universities (ICMP, BIMM, Cambridge), participated in television performances and competitions (TVI, RTP). And you are ready to be a #EMMA student?
