The METRIC (Modernizing European Higher Music Education through Improvisation) is a cooperative network of several European conservatoires and the AEC that focuses on curriculum development and intensive cooperation in the field of improvisation in higher music education.

The network of the METRIC Project is composed of 15 European institutions and its coordination is supported by the European Association of Conservatoires (AEC).

The fifth edition of the METRIC Intensive Programme (IP) will take place in Leipzig, Germany on 15-19 February.

The METRIC IP 2023 will be hosted by the Hochschule für Musik und Theater “Felix Mendelssohn Bartholdy” and will consist of five full days of workshops and masterclasses on improvisation. The IP will gather around 40 students and 15 teachers from different improvisation backgrounds, who will work and perform together.

An official invitation will be sent to the METRIC network soon. External institutions are welcome to join as observers.
