Milan Svoboda is often invited as a music instructor to teach at various jazz workshops, mainly abroad. In the 1980s he taught for several consecutive years at the Jazz workshop in Frýdlant, Czech Republic, where he also founded the popular Contraband Jazz Orchestra in 1988. Together with Jiří Stivín Svoboda gave a workshop at the Leverkusen Jazz Days festival in Germany in 1987. After the year 2000 Svoboda received numerous invitations to teach mostly big band workshops in Germany, for example in Reklinghausen (2003), Wangen and Chemnitz (2004), Musikhochschule Dresden (2005) and Iserlohn (2006 and 2012).

In 2004, 2007, 2010 and 2017 he worked with the Jugend-Jazzorchester Sachsen and gave a big band workshop together with other instructors - colleagues from his Prague Big Band. With the JJO Sachsen Svoboda rehearsed a full-length program each time which consisted mostly of his compositions and which was played at several ensuing concerts. With this project Svoboda recorded a CD "Jazzwelten".

Svoboda also regularly cooperates with the East West European Jazz Orchestra in Dortmund, Germany, producing several concert projects and performing them at festivals in Coesfeld, Germany (2007), Dortmund, Germany (2010) and Rostov on Don, Russia (2013). In 2009 Svoboda was invited to Cyprus to create a combined project with the Cyprus Big Band joined by his Quartet in Nicosia and Limassol. Recently Svoboda has been collaborating with the Jazz Akademie Dortmund. In 2013 he took part in a combined workshop of his Prague J.J. Conservatory Jazz Orchestra alongside the Glen Buschmann Jazz Akademie Big Band. Both big bands then played together in Dortmund, Hamm, Iserlohn and in Prague. In August 2014 Milan Svoboda was member of the music instructor team at a workshop at the Kunstsommer festival in Arnsberg, Germany.

Jazz workshops that Milan Svoboda conducts are mostly focused on jazz big band training and music theory (improvisation theory and modern jazz harmony).
