In the first phase, LATIMPE aims to:

  • gather information on and investigate learning and teaching practices in music performance education
  • share knowledge through workshops, conferences, presentations, publications and online media
  • collaborate with existing projects on learning and teaching carried out by AEC member institutions
  • stimultate the development of new projects on learning and teaching in music performance education

A collaborative initiative

LATIMPE is made with support from the Norwegian Academy of Music in Oslo through CEMPE (Centre for Excellence in Music Performance Education and The Association Européenne des Conservatoires, Académies de Musique et Musikhochschulen (AEC) through the EU project Strengthening Music in Society.

AEC is a European cultural and educational network, which was established in 1953. It represents the interests of almost 300 institutions for higher music education in Europe and beyond.

CEMPE started in 2014, as one of in total eight Centers for Excellence in Norwegian higher education. As a Centre for Excellence, it aims to develop knowledge about learning and teaching in higher music education by initiating collaboration and through supporting projects that explore alternative methods of teaching and learning.
