This program offers the country's musical community classes with the leading international artists invited to the Festival. A significant percentage of the participants (students and teachers) receive mobility grants managed by the Festival and its allies, through an annual call that seeks to support Colombian talent with guarantees.

The objective of this program is to have outstanding emerging musicians with great talent as guest artists of the Festival, generating a recognized space to project their career.

Within the framework of the Festival, efforts continue to be made for impulsive activities, such as the instrument and underwear clinics, the construction of bagpipes and drums, the loudest fight for children and the setting up of a new version of the instrumental exposition The Past News of Music. As now, rely on a higher construction of unconventional instruments, based on recyclable materials, in a request to research a craft of environmental awareness. The Lutheran Instrument Center, a Salvi Foundation project, in agreement with the Colombian Ministry of Culture and the Mario Santo Domingo Foundation project, will be responsible for this series of activities.
