She said that as a music conservatory with a history of 187 years, cooperating with ZJCM, a young and energetic school, has injected new vitality into this ancient conservatory. Barcelona Liceu Conservatory boasts an international teaching staff that is in line with world standards and students from 43 countries. In addition to cultivating high-level music talents, it has also established integrated music talents cultivation systems with more than 40 primary and secondary schools in Catalonia. It is the only school in Spain that deeply participates in the entire city's primary and secondary music education, providing students with a comprehensive learning and practicing platform. She said that the arrival of exchange students from ZJCM in recent years has added musical diversity to Barcelona Liceu Conservatory, and hoped that more teachers and students from ZJCM will participate in exchange visits, and Spanish students will also be sent to ZJCM for exchange and study.
