Escuela Magenta is a mobile school without a fixed location with a nomadic spirit. We approach you to offer you courses. We are dedicated to promoting audiovisual expression through our courses. We always try to facilitate collaboration and creative encounters between people. Our training is aimed at adults who want to learn to express themselves creatively with audiovisual technologies.
The idea of Escuela Magenta was born in Helsinki, Finland where Lu Priace Michavila lived for 6 years and fell in love with Finnish pedagogical methods. Learning through play, a taste for exploration, innovation, experimentation and constant learning throughout life inspired Lu Priace Michavila to return to Spain and found Escuela Magenta in 2023.
We offer in-person courses for groups or individuals. Our courses are in audiovisual expression so that you learn to make your own audiovisual projects such as videos and music made with a computer. We do not have a fixed headquarters but we offer courses in different places renting rooms to be able to get closer to you.
We are especially dedicated to the Valencian community but we can also visit other national and international places. Our teaching mode is hybrid since we accompany in-person teaching with digital resources such as digital books and video tutorials to help you in your learning process.

What are students saying about us?
It gave me perspective to electronic music, it's history and genres, interesting. Lu was supporting and clear and guided us from the very beginning.
Lu is extremely nice and generous and manages to make this course a very good first experience of experimentation and exploration of audiovisual possibilities
I found the course very inspiring. Lu has been a supportive and enthusiastic guide, able to keep the course playful even when the obvious challenges of learning a new skill arose.
Engaged teacher, interesting new things that I didn't know from before.
It was interesting and the handouts were informative.
I gained confidence to continue making short-films and learning more about this beautiful art.
We were able to learn about equipment, software and many options to start making music with fun exercises.
The exercises helped me to further understand how I can express my feelings and views through video and sound
It was interesting to learn how to record my own music and also knowing more about the history of electronic music (which was unfamiliar to me)
I learned to make music from knowing nothing about the DAW, creating rhythm from MIDI, recording samples, layering, adjusting parameters and effects, a hint of mixing and mastering up to exporting my own music!
The course was well-structured and allowed us to freely express ourselves with music
Great course & nice positive atmosphere during the course
Lu is friendly, patient, and obviously knows what he is talking about
