Music Education Academy 2015
The Music Education Academy (MEA) is a high-level training seminar for emerging talented musicians based in Luxembourg or any other European country and aims at developing knowledge and practical skills in music education. The intense 5-day training platform will take place from 8-13 February 2015 in Luxembourg and is initiated and organized by the Philharmonie Luxembourg
In recent years, the significance of music education has greatly increased. Presenters, producers and orchestras place music education at the heart of the institution’s life and work with audiences and participants of all ages so that they can get involved in and inspired through music.
Musicians play a key role in this process. However, there is a lack of specific and suitable training opportunities for musicians who want to work in educational settings. The MEA supports up and coming musicians with the ambition to acquire skills and knowledge in music education.
Combining training and practical involvement in Philharmonie Luxembourg’s education program the Philharmonie intends to engage MEA participants in follow-up projects. Projects might be concerts for young audiences, participation and learning projects or others, according to the profile of the participants.
The Academy will be chaired by Katherine Zeserson (Director of Learning and Participation, Sage Gateshead, UK). Lectures, round tables and coachings will also be provided by
– Etienne Abelin (Musician, Cultural Entrepreneur, CH),
– Prof. Andrea Tober (Head of Education, Berliner Philharmoniker, GER),
– Peter Wiegold (composer, conductor, UK),
– Gilles Delebarre (Cité de la musique, Paris, FR)
– Stephan Gehmacher (Director General, Philharmonie Luxembourg, LU),
– Pascal Sticklies (Senior Manager – Education Department, Philharmonie Luxembourg, LU) and others.
