Report of the EAS Student Forum 2021 in Freiburg (DE)

The 19th Student forum was due to the pandemic situation not held in Freiburg (Germany) in person, but according to the motto “Music is what people do” online.

Although it was an online event, 12 student delegates from … different countries nevertheless took part in this special event.

Organized by Andreas Bernhofer (Salzburg), Bernd Clausen (Köln), Diletta Bibbo (Padua) and Lena Widdermann (Freiburg)

Among other activities, we took the participants on a musical walk through Freiburg, to give them a bit of the feeling of being in Freiburg. While listening to the Musical Walk, the participants went for a walk in their own hometowns to share the pictures and impressions with each other.

Furthermore, the participants had the opportunity to take part in an online workshop in which they learned beatboxing basics.

Comments of the participants:

„I can safely say that the EAS Student Forum 2021 was one of the best virtual events that I have attended since the start of the pandemic and in a short space of time, I have managed to make good friends from across the continent.”

“For me, SF was a window into new informations, knowledge, methods, ways of looking at music and people.”

“An invaluable experience that continues to inspire me to take new musical steps.”

“The student forum showed me the importance and joy of having discussions and interactions with music teachers from other countries, because we can learn from each other and enrich each other’s ideas.”
