IncluMusic partners (Increasing skills for building more inclusive conservatories) are conducting a desk research on training practices for HME teachers and administrative staff, focusing on inclusion and SEN. The objective is to analyse the current picture when it comes to fostering the inclusion of SEN students within the European HME landscape, in order to further reinforce the competencies of teachers and administrative staff in the field.

AEC members wishing to contribute with any related initiative carried out at their home institutions are invited to send their full name, position and institution’s name and country via email at More information, such as a short summary, admission requirements, learning outcomes, references and targets might be requested at a later stage. 

All contributions will be highly valuable and will have significant impact in the development of the project outputs. Indeed, IncluMusic aims at fostering the inclusion of SEN students and those from disadvantaged backgrounds in HME institutions, providing training for music teachers in innovative pedagogies, in order to increase access, participation and completion rates of music students with fewer opportunities.

Moreover, AEC, as coordinator for the project communication and exploitation activities, is happy to announce that IncluMusic will be presented in a full-morning workshop delivered in the frame of the AEC Annual Meeting for International Relations Coordinators, on 21 September in Leuven (Belgium). Project partners will share with the participants the developments of the project so far, and will collect feedback for the tailored project training courses, to be officially presented towards the end of the project period.

IncluMusic is a strategic partnership funded by the European Commission’s Erasmus+ programme and coordinated by the Academia Națională de Muzică „Gheorghe Dima” (AMGD).
