Welcome to EMU

On behalf of the Board and the Office of the EMU, I wish you a warm welcome to the Website of the European Music School Union!

In a fast changing world, Music Schools have to face constant and huge challenges. In this context, it is vital to rely on collective intelligence, cooperation and partnerships. This is why networks like ours are so important for the future of music education in Europe.

The EMU, which brings together 26 national associations and represents 6,000 music and art schools, 150,000 professionals and 4 million students, fosters:

– the quality and diversity of music education in Europe and its access to the largest audience;

– its promotion to the European and national institutions;

– the exchange of information and experience between our members;

– the formation of regional working groups;

– the organization of training seminars throughout Europe;

– the development of innovative pedagogical projects;

– the collaboration with higher education, music at school and university research;

– the patronage of Youth Music Festivals.

We strongly believe that the transmission of music and art in general is more than ever necessary to our society, and we are counting on you to participate with us in this goal!

Thank you for your interest in the EMU,
Best regards,
Philippe Dalarun
EMU President
