FULL SCORE is a 3-year-project coordinated by the Association Européenne des Conservatoires, Académies de Musique et Musikhochschulen (AEC) with support from the European Commission through the scheme “European Networks” of the Creative Europe programme. FULL SCORE started on 1st September 2014 and will end on 31 August 2017.
Within the framework of the FULL SCORE project, the AEC has established a structured cooperation with the European Music School Union (EMU) and the European Association of Music Schools (EAS) by the creation of a Steering Committee for the Harmonisation of European Music Education (SCHEME). This strand of the FULL SCORE project seeks to strengthen the European Music Education Sector by overseeing the joint projects with EAS and EMU and exploring potential synergies and future strategies for the sector to train the musicians of tomorrow.

The EAS asserts that the outcome of the Brexit referendum will not affect the EAS’s co-operation with UK institutions and colleagues involved in music education and in music teacher training. Over the past years, the EAS and its UK members have contributed significantly to the promotion and strengthening of European integration, and the society remains committed to continuing all partnerships, across Europe and beyond, in our music education work.

Main theme: JOINT (AD)VENTURE MUSIC – Networking as a challenge for music teachers
Helping young people to develop a deeper understanding of music and fostering their active participation in musical life in a rapidly changing society has to be a joint venture between different partners. Such joint ventures may turn into joint (ad)ventures that explore multiple facets of musical culture.
Embedded in a cultural network, music education in schools depends on dialogues with:
- public and private cultural institutions
- extracurricular music education
- referential research fields
This congress encourages musical educators and communicators involved in their own specific ventures to become engaged in the adventure of new collaborations.
We invite participants to consider: What are the challenges and benefits of interdisciplinary approaches? What are the challenges and benefits of multimedial approaches? To what extent can new approaches foster a better understanding of works of art? What are the challenges of cooperative projects between different institutions? What are the benefits of breaking up the close framework of the classroom-situation? Which partners are supportive in a search for new approaches? How do we develop students’ ability of working together?
