The EMU will cooperate with the Hungarian Association of Music and Art Schools and the Veszprém-Balaton European Capital of Culture in the organisation of a capacity building seminar on early childhood music education in 2022. The seminar will take place on December 2 & 3 at the Antal Csermák Elementary Art School in Veszprém, Hungary, the European capital of culture in 2023.
The seminar sets out to explore the rich Hungarian traditions of teaching music in the early years and to discuss its methods and benefits for cognitive, motoric and social development. It will furthermore bring together international experts to present the latest developments, best practices and different approaches from all over Europe. The seminar aims to both introduce the topic of ECME to participants with no or only little experience with this kind of pedagogy, while at the same time deepen its understanding for teachers and practitioners already active in the field. The seminar is well suited for music teachers wishing to engage more with ECME as well as for music school directors interested in widening the pedagogical offer of their institutions.
The seminar will take place with financial support from the Veszprém-Balaton European Capital of Culture, who will cover the subsistance cost and one night accommodation (December 2 to 3) for all participants. Interested individuals will only have to cover their own travel expenses to Veszprém.
