At the first phase, the Vietnamese traditional music program will be applied from this academic year for the FPT High School under the FPT University.

With a 18-week program compiled by Thanh Hoa Concert JSC, students are expected to acquire basic knowledge about Vietnamese folk songs in different regions of the country as well as to be able to sing the traditional songs under the instruction of professional artists.

The next phase will see the new program applied for students at university level.

The program aims to help students get the country’s valuable knowledge as well as understand the spirit of the nation through the traditional melodies, according to FPT University.
