On 19-23 April, in the framework of the DEMUSIS project, the Teacher training for the preparation of the entrepreneurial bootcamp for music students in Serbia MUSIC –  HERE AND NOW was organised online. The DEMUSIS Teacher Training was led by Renee Jonker, Head of the Master NAIP (New Audiences and Innovative Practice) at the Royal Conservatoire The Hague (The Netherlands) and member of the AEC-SMS Working Group 3: Entrepreneurial mindset for musicians.

The training consisted of 4 online sessions of 2 hours each, in which the teachers from the Faculty of Music in Belgrade, Academy of Arts in Novi Sad and the Faculty of Philology and Arts in Kragujevac explored different subjects such as:

– the objectives and learning outcomes of this form of education;
– music in society;
– the design of an entrepreneurial bootcamp;
– coaching principles: the difference between leading & guiding;
– feedback and assessment.

The entrepreneurial bootcamp is an educational instrument that allows students to develop a lot of skills in a short period of time. In only a few days students learn by doing how they can function in society as artists in different roles and different contexts. Students are challenged to make use of their creativity, their ability to collaborate and their communicative skills. They will explore different aspects of their artistic identity in a setting outside the walls of their educational institution.
