Music is an inspiring and important medium. It brings people together, can hearten, provoke, motivate and influence, and what better time for music in our lives than during the festive season! At Shine Music School in Barcelona we offer gift certificates for courses, as well as instrument rental packages, and a range of guitars in our shop. Stop by and give the gift of music this Christmas!

Not in Barcelona? Don’t worry, we also offer classes over Skype, and our rental packages can be for as short as a day or two, which is a fun way to add something special to a weekend trip to Barcelona!

And now to get you into the Christmas spirit here is Oscar Peterson!
