Except in sporadic cases, the musical scores of the pieces of the workshop will not be provided, as learning will take place by ear, as per the Afro-American gospel tradition.

It is not possible, as, for safety reasons, only the people regularly enrolled in the workshop, the artists involved and the organizational staff can remain in the room.
