“Music is what people do”
Listening, dancing, singing, song writing, discussing an album, playing, visiting a concert, reading your favourite band’s blog – Music is what people do.
Music is a central activity in peoples’ lives. Music is a way of dealing with the world that cannot be replaced by any other. This is why music is part of school education in many countries.
At the 28th EAS/8th ISME European Regional Online Conference hosted by Freiburg, Germany we want to discuss vital questions connected to our conference theme “Music is what people do”:
- What rolesdoes music play in society?
- What arethe educational consequences of an understanding of music as a practice?
- How can music education support the rich musical diversity of our times?
- How can music education connect with learners’ expertise in music?
- How can music in school offer all learners new ways of approaching music?
