EAS Mission Statement (pdf) agreed by the EAS General Meeting 2021
The European Association for Music in Schools (EAS) is a music education network. It interconnects all those involved in music education (teachers, teacher educators, researchers, students, musicians, policy makers) to share knowledge and experience in practice and research, and to advocate for high quality music education that is accessible to all young people.
The EAS aims to support the music education community in fostering and developing essential competencies to advance practice and research, and to aid cultural awareness. Our work invites music educators to motivate learners to pursue their own interests and goals with confidence, and to facilitate young people’s creativity.
The EAS operates in accordance with the principles of UNESCO.
The EAS organises an annual conference, initiates and engages in a range of other music education activities and projects, and cooperates with partner organisations in the European and global context.
