For several years OJM has been committed to education, investing in the creation and development of educational projects. Furthermore, OJM´s mission statement aims to entice and educate new publics. Among the several projects that stand out are the Profissional Jazz Player Degree designed in partnership with several other Matosinhos’ institutions - among which the Escola de Música Óscar da Silva - and the OJM Junior, an initiative carried out in partnership with the Montalegre Junior Music Festival that aims at boosting and promoting applied music education within a performance context. Besides regular educational actions in schools, OJM promotes Grande Pesca Sonora (Great Sound Fishing), an extensive workshop consisting of music, multimedia art and creative writing that culminates with a public presentation gathering a large group of students with OJM’s musicians. With the establishment of CARA, OJM is already working on establishing a permanent training team and structuring in-house regular formative activities.
