The increasing interest of musical arts among youth especially in Yogyakarta leads to a rapid proliferation of community based both formal and informal musical groups. It drives a necessity to provide those groups with spaces to learn and perform. Formal institutions namely universities and schools can only be accessed by formal educated students. In the other hand, many informal music groups also need spaces to learn and perform. Student-centered learning and information technology in education has been a popular trend among universities in Indonesia. Arguably it also generates the development of collaborative learning space and collaborative work spaces in Yogyakarta. It gives a space with proper facilities for students to learn and work along with their companions at any time possible. This paper will report surveys on the proliferation of those collaborative learning space in general and musical community needs. We try to map the relation between the design typology provided by the existing space and the need and expectation of the community. It is then discussed and elaborated the (new) contextual collaborative learning concept as an approach to design a learning and performing space for musical arts. This paper will indicate a propoposal of a new concept of architectural space and collaborative learning in terms of music education. The spatial layout, building performance and visual preference of the design proposal will be tested to community expectations.
