Pop and Jazz Platform (PJP) Preparatory Working Group

The Pop and Jazz Platform (PJP) preparatory Working Group is in charge of the organization of the AEC Annual Pop and Jazz Platform meeting. This event aims to promote and support higher education in popular music and jazz in the widest definition of those terms. Both popular music and jazz include a variety of subgenres and styles as well as specific performance, learning and cultural practices. However we do believe that popular music and jazz as overall music forms are closely related through a set of common characteristics.
