The AEC Pop & Jazz Platform
The AEC Pop & jazz Platform is open to all AEC institutions with a profound interest in jazz and popular music education; i.e. institutions that are:
Providing programmes in jazz, pop, etc. (programmes in performance, composition, teaching technology, management, etc.)
Providing courses in jazz, pop, etc. as part of classical music programmes
Planning to start programmes in jazz, pop, etc. in near future.
Objectives and Aims
The overall objective of the platform is to support and promote jazz and popular music education in European higher music education.
The specific aims of the platform are:
to provide and disseminate general information about pop-jazz programmes of the participating institutions (study plans, curricula, special events, etc.)
to support student and teacher exchanges (ECTS, preparatory visits, etc.),
to support projects, seminars, intensive projects, etc, about academic issues of didactical nature (curriculum development, styles and genres, teaching and learning, etc.)
A working group has been set up to coordinate the activities of the platform, and each institution has appointed an academic contact person (ACP), who will be coordinating the content of the activities.
the European Association of Conservatoires (AEC) is a European cultural and educational network with more than 273 member institutions for professional music training in 55 countries.
