We are happy to announce that, since the beginning of the year, four new member institutions have joined the AEC community. Applications for Active and Associate membership were approved during the last AEC Council meeting in Kraków, Poland, on 28-29 March. These include:
- Music Academy, University of Montenegro – Cetinje
- Istituto Superiore di Studi Musicali “Franco Vittadini” – Pavia
These institutions became Active members of our association, a category dedicated to any conservatoire, académie de musique, musikhochschulen or other equivalent institution in Europe aiming at educating students for the music profession. These institutions are engaged in the delivery of programmes, some of which are above Level 4 of the European Qualifications Framework (EQF) or its equivalent, and meet the broad description of such programmes contained in the AEC/Tuning Handbook: ‘Reference Points for the Design and Delivery of Degree Programmes in Music’.
- Korea National University of Arts (K-Arts) – Seoul
- London Performing Academy of Music (LPMAM) – London
These institutions became Associate members of our association, a category dedicated to institutions, both within and outside Europe, which either provide the same level of education as stated for Active members above OR are active in, or have connection to wider aspects of training for the music profession.
Furthermore, several institutions from all across Europe and beyond have expressed their interest in AEC membership in the last months, and have contacted the AEC office for more information.
