For Musicians


Silkroad’s Global Musician Workshop (GMW) is designed to foster a community of globally minded musicians, helping artists to learn from one another’s traditions and incorporate them into their own voices. An all-star artist-faculty teaches styles of music from across the world.

Each summer, Silk Road Ensemble cellist Mike Block directs a week-long Global Musician Workshop at DePauw University’s Music School, home of the 21st-Century Musician Initiative. In August 2016, Silkroad joined the Tanglewood Music Center to host the Global Musician Workshop for Tanglewood Music Center Fellows, talented young musicians trained in the western classical tradition.
