Entering its last stage, the Erasmus+ DEMUSIS project had the great pleasure to welcome in Serbia a number of experts and visiting teachers from EU partner institutions.

Throughout October and early November, visiting teachers from the Royal Conservatoire of The Hague held a series of lectures and workshops on “fostering the career and entrepreneurial skills” for music students of Serbian music academies. Over 70 students and teachers from Belgrade, Novi Sad and Kragujevac took part in teaching sessions led by Martin Prchal (25-28 October), Heloisa Amaral (1-10 November) and Felix Schlarmann (7-10 November), which included lectures with small practical assignments, various workshops and discussion groups, the last one concluding with development and performance of one experimental concert.

Additionally, students from Belgrade and Novi Sad had a special opportunity to discuss entrepreneurship in arts, work with the audience, tips for a successful career in art, and other topical issues with Inga Uus from the Lithuanian Academy of Music and Theatre.

Fourteen Lifelong Learning (LLL) courses kicked off in September. They are developed by the Faculty of Music of the University of Arts in Belgrade, the Academy of Arts of the University in Novi Sad and the Faculty of Philology and Arts of the University in Kragujevac and accredited by the National Institute for Improvement of Education.

They are offered to music teachers from pre-university education, as well as music professionals of diverse profiles, covering a wide range of topics within three project thematic fields — those of digital competencies in music, music entrepreneurship and social engagement of academic musicians.
