For Monserrat Venegas, a student of Lic. In Music, the workshop had great significance and argued: “I liked it a lot, since it gave us the possibility to realize that the resources and tools are at our disposal and are in our interior and environment near; that is not something inaccessible, but depends on each one, and I value this a lot. In addition, they provided tools to be autonomous and independent in our actions and actions, I recommend that all students attend these instances as they provide opportunities to be independent of the students, with a close speech and without a pre-made guideline.
