News from the Strategic Partnership Project INTERMUSIC (2017-2020)

INTERMUSIC (INTERactive environment for MUSIC learning and practising) is a development project carried out based on a strategic partnership between European Higher Music Education Institutions (Conservatorio di Milano, Royal Danish Academy of Music and Lithuanian Academy of Music and Theater) with the support of the Politecnico di Milano and AEC. The main objective is to create an online shared platform for distance learning dedicated to music teaching and practice that will enable modelling and sharing the best training practices for musicians as well as joint courses and online projects.

During the AEC Congress in Graz, the INTERMUSIC project was presented, and in particular the INTERMUSIC platform, which adapts open source distance learning technologies to the needs of higher music education. A course module on Mastering Voice Literature in a foreign language developed by the Royal Academy of Music in Copenhagen was presented explaining how to combine competences in a strategic partnership relation where very different skills are needed, such as technical developers, artistic thinking, phoneticians, teaching, foreign language competences, e-learning, management and organisational skills. Future perspectives of INTERMUSIC in the collaboration between music academies were also discussed.

The next multiplier event of the project will take place in September 2019 in Prague in the framework of the AEC Annual Meeting for International Relations Coordinators 2019.
