Workshops

Muscat workshops are hosted by the RISM Editorial Center or organized by members of our national groups around the world. If you are interested in organizing a workshop, we’re happy to assist. We can also give Muscat demonstrations online.

Access to a training server is available for use in demonstrations, at conferences, or in workshops.

To our regular Muscat users: You can also hold a Muscat workshop! Consider proposing a Muscat session for your next library or musicological association conference.
