VOX early MUS
Date du début: 1 sept. 2015, Date de fin: 31 août 2018 PROJET  TERMINÉ 

VOX early MUS aims to improve the quality and relevance of higher music education through creating a joint master program on vocal early music small ensembles, at the excellency level. Under this frame, prestigious teachers, students and professionals from European conservatories and potential employment institutions will gather in order to exchange good practices on innovative methods and approaches in teaching, learning, assessing and performing vocal early music, taking into account four important dimensions: internationalization, vocal pedagogy, artistic performance and professional integration. Having young specialized professionals in vocal early music appears as an evident need nowadays: quality, professionalism, true aesthetic values are the alternatives this music offers. There is a growing interest at the European level, shown by students, teachers and professionals, in exploring and understanding the richness of the early music repertoire, with its own particularities in terms of technical, aesthetic and stylistic aspects. Under these circumstances, implementing vocal early music for small ensembles in the university curriculum - as a joint master program - arises as a common need of the partner institutions. This new learning offer in music education leads the students and graduates to identify new professional competencies and wider career opportunities. Partner institutions in VOX early MUS: 1. National University of Music Bucharest - coordinator (Romania) 2. Den Haag Royal Conservatory (Netherlands) 3. "Joseph Haydn" Conservatory, Eisenstadt (Austria) 4. "Arrigo Pedrollo" Conservatory of Vicenza (Italy) 5. "Arrigo Boito" Conservatory of Parma (Italy) 6. Association of European Conservatories - AEC (Belgium) 7. Fondazione Italiana per la Musica Antica - Rome (Italy) 8. National Choir Association - Bucharest (Romania) VOX early MUS addresses both direct and indirect beneficiaries - as target groups. More than 90 students - from five European conservatories - who have the vocal skills, knowledge and a special interest in approaching and understanding vocal early music - will benefit of the intellectual outcomes of the transnational thematic meetings and will test the innovative teaching methods put in act during the Intensive Programs. 36 teachers from five European conservatories - who have a well-known expertise in the early music field - will be involved in the transnational thematic meetings and in the Intensive Programs - as the main activities of the project, elaborating two intellectual outputs: Curriculum design and development handbook on vocal early music small ensembles (O1) and "VOX early MUS mastering excellence" - an electronic didactic support (O2).
