Project Delivery

 

The music industry is an international business. Students in the partner countries are preparing for work in the international labour market. The target group is secondary (F.E.) level students and staff in vocational education in the fields of music performance (classical, pop, jazz and folk music) and music technology. The working life of people in the music industry makes demands of entrepreneurship and reaching out beyond national boundaries.  This project will give the students and staff an opportunity to work together during two years.

The students will plan and implement together two music projects beginning from composing and writing lyrics. They also learn to promote their music and organize events where they may perform their own music.  All these phases will be written to guidelines which are in free use for all after the project. Partners build together a common Pan European study unit during which these activities can be done.  This unit will be validated and recognized in all partner countries. This will diversify the real work experience of the participants during their study.

 

 

The methodology:

 

Team working with others; tutors from all partner countries and delivered in a local context. This is facilitated by working in an online environment supported by industry perspective input from the working-life partner. The project has intensive use of technology for co-operation, dissemination, marketing and promotion.

The workshops are designed to equip learners with the skills to participate effectively in live musical events. To do this the workshops contain solo and group activities.

 

Financial reporting will be required from the partners once in four months i.e.  six times during the project, this enables us to monitor expenditure and take any required action.

The transnational meetings are linked three times to workshops in Derry, Tallinn and Kajaani. Two others will be separate. The project administration and management are dealt with in every project meeting which also act as progress checkpoints.
