The Opera Studio has been modernised, and concert halls which are extensively used for different events, concerts, examination sessions, etc., have been renovated. The students can play new musical instruments and make use of the modern Audio-Visual and Information Technologies Centre as well as the Music Innovation Studies Centre, which has specialised studies and audio research facilities, a mobile acoustic space for music recordings and the unique Julius Juzeliūnas Sphere of Spatial Sound.
