About the project
"Following the waves of music around Europe."
The fast mobility of people in Europe is transforming our life. It is transforming the the way children and young people see their world, their culture, their language and communicate with each other. But, so far, this revolution has not transformed our schools or most teaching and learning processes in our classrooms. Today's young generation lives in a global world and technology based where to be part of it and in a lifelong learning perspective they need to acquire are not only basic one competences such as reading, counting or writing but also nonverbal competences: teamwork, communication via a foreign language, ICT skills, musical and cultural identity. According to the Key Competence Framework, Cultural awareness and expression: ability to appreciate the creative importance of ideas, experiences and emotions in a range of media such as music, literature and visual and performing arts. Is the objective of our project and we believe that it can be gained via new forms of literacy, creative problem solving skills, collaboration and communication skills and cultural and ethical awareness. Our prior aim is to create awareness about a European and multicultural world by teaching our students how to communicate using their traditional music as an important tool that would enable them to gain problem solving, collaboration, creative thinking and communication skills, beyond the cultural differences of every type. Playing students from different countries will improve their lives, influence their thinking, impact on the communities within they act and make learning real, meaningful and relevant for the new generation of students as they will start to understand that music affects our culture, since the past toward the future.
