About Us

Havana Music is a musical project based in Havana that promotes the Cuban music and culture.

Our music courses and workshops are aimed at students of all levels as well as teachers and musicians who wish to learn or deepen their knowledge of Cuban music. From our music center, we guarantee a well-rounded and fascinating experience.

The mixture of cultures has created a fusion of rhythms and styles in Cuba with a long tradition and quality that has been recognised worldwide. Havana is the capital of Cuban music and the ideal place to learn it.

Frequent questions

When should I book my course?

We recommend to book your course at least two weeks before your arrival to Havana.

I would like to attend live music concerts in Havana, which venues do you recommend me?

Every week we will let you know the best concerts in Havana. For Jazz you can attend “La Zorra y el Cuervo“, for Timba you should go to “Casa de la Música de Miramar“, for Rumba “Casa del Tambor”… You like Trova? Then you shouldn’t miss Ray Fernández. Our place is located in Vedado, very close to FAC, a must visit for Art enthusiast.

Regarding accommodation?

We always recommend Private Houses “Casas Particulares” in Vedado neighborhood, prices can vary from 25 – 50 USD per night.

What's the best way to move around Havana?

Best (and also the cheapest) way to move around Havana is to take “Taxis Colectivos”. Some useful Apps are “La Nave”, it works similar to Uber but you can only pay in cash: Cuban Pesos (CUP).

Where can I change money?

Cuba is a cash society, most places don’t take card payment. Cuba has two sets of exchange rates: official and informal rate. For 1 USD or EUR, you’ll get 110 or 120 CUP at the official rate (CADECAS or Banks) and 385 CUP at the black-market rate (which is technically not legal).

Unfortunately I changed my plans and wont make it to Havana, do I get my deposit back?

We offer a full money-back guarantee for all cancellations made at least 48h before the lesson.

I want an official certificate degree, do you provide it?

We are not an official institution, we are an independent project, therefore we cannot provide you with an official certificate. In that case you should get in touch with the National School of Arts (ENA) or Instituto Superior de Arte (ISA). If needed, we can provide you with a Diploma certificate stating the type of course and number of hours you have taken with us.
