Music Education Agreement

5 October 2021

On 6 October, we'll commemorate one year of the Music Education Agreement (Muziekopleiders Akkoord) at HKU Utrechts Conservatorium: a long-term collaboration between PABO and conservatoires!

The programme consists of various online activities for PABO and conservatory students, professionals within the training institutes, education and partners. For example, there is a student block with online music workshops and a student challenge about pop music kicked off by the band De Staat. There is also an in-depth block with themes such as subject integration, music and educational technology and internship supervision, and there is a round table discussion about what the Music Education Agreement has achieved so far.

We're very excited about continuing our part in this agreement. Our teachers Jan Gooren, Yolande Eymael, Jori Klomp, Sander Ruijters and Bart Verhagen of the Music in Education Department (Docent Muziek) provide lessons and worksessions at the PABO. PABO students that choose the Music specialization receive band coaching four times a year at Conservatorium Maastricht. Our students have the opportunity to do an internship in the music lessons of de Nieuwste Pabo. And finally, on October 20th, our students and PABO students will meet at Theater aan het Vrijthof for an educational performance by Philharmonie ZuidNederland! After the performance, workshops will take place!
