Special Focus Group
Singing in Music Education

Singing has traditionally held a central place in classroom music education in European countries. SiME aims to provide an opportunity for dialogue and Europe-wide exchange about different practices and research. SiME offers a platform for this dialogue in form of a network of practitioners and researchers to develop, support and disseminate singing projects and research on the subject of singing in schools. A long term aim is to link relevant research to policy concerns in order to promote and maintain healthy and vibrant singing cultures in European schools.

SiME currently brings together over 100 EAS-affiliated researchers and practitioners.
