The Global Music Centre offers training and workshop activities associated with different musical cultures from around the world to children and adults throughout Finland. Training and workshops tailored to meet the needs of the client can be supplied to order.

The Global Music Centre has been involved in various projects aimed at bringing global music into the curriculum of schools and music schools. The idea is to encourage and develop multicultural music teaching and increase the diversity of musical education both in comprehensive schools and upper secondary schools, and in music schools as well. For example, the Global Music Centre organizes theme weeks in Helsinki nursery schools on West African and Spanish music, and carries out multicultural education projects.
