UPCOMING WEBINAR – “Changing Times: Music (Education) Still Matters”

Please join us for a WEBINAR on Wednesday September 6th 11-12.30 CEST.

This webinar is hosted by the European Music Council (EMC) and has been organised by Association Européenne des Conservatoires, Académies de Musique et Musikhochschulen (AEC), European Association for Music in Schools (EAS), European Choral Association, European Music School Union (EMU) and Jeunesses Musicales International (JMI).

Living in times of change includes facing new societal, political, educational and technological developments and changes to value systems. As a reaction, there is a constant need for transformation which, at the same time, is both an opportunity and a challenge. When looking towards the future, it is important to reflect on and embrace change in order to shape it collaboratively. Music (education) will remain an important element in this development.
Join us for the thought-provoking webinar “Changing Times: Music (Education) Still Matters” for which we have gathered high-level experts from the field of music education and music practices. During the webinar we will take a look at the current challenges music education is facing, including COVID, recruitment issues and maintaining music’s place on the curricula of schools across Europe. The webinar will also explore possible solutions and what the notion of cultural citizenship means for developing Europe’s societies. Jointly, the invited experts will look at what strategies and actions are needed for ensuring that music still matters in the future.
