Music in Education


Recurring course components include projects such as the Choir Class and the Improvisation Week.

Music as part of society we find very important. In January 2017 we have conducted a project week in cooperation with the ASC in Dronten. The program consisted of singing, playing and improvising together with children, young people and adults from many parts of the world.

An example of a project in 2015:

Improvisation week

Music in Education in Zwolle/Enschede and Music Therapy have a joint improvisation week each year. Under the guidance of renowned national and international guest lecturers, you will put together a spectacular final presentation based on your unique perspectives in music, dance, and theatre. guest lecturers are a.o. Paul Griffiths (music improvisation), Adriaan Luteijn (dance) and (music)theatre lecturers.

The Choir Class

All first and second-year students of the Music in Education course and Classical Music will sing in a choir class. There are two projects each year (1 classical music and 1 pop/jazz) with a different theme each time, the conductor for which may vary. The project is concluded with a public concert at an external location. Instrumentalists will also play during the concerts in an accompanying or solo role. In recent years, high-profile programmes were designed.

Project week non-Western music

The departments Jazz & Pop, Classical Music and Music in Education in Zwolle jointly organize a project week around non-Western music. A week of workshops, masterclasses and concerts.
