In 2004, a studio-music laboratory was created, equipped with the most modern equipment. The laboratory made it possible to intensify the work on publishing educational and methodological material and introducing new technologies in the schools of the city and the region. On the basis of the studio-laboratory seminars are held for teachers of music in the schools of the city, scientific and practical conferences.
