"Music Theory and Integration"

Conservatorium Maastricht
10.00 - 13.00

Conservatorium Maastricht (CM) and the Dutch-Flemish Society for Music Theory (VvM) are organising a conference and youth symposium from Friday 9 to Sunday 11 March 2018, under the title "Music Theory and Integration". Conference

How do you integrate music theory into the curriculum, performance practice and research? How do you integrate the various disciplines such as analysis, ear training, harmony etc. into theory education?
During this conference, the above topics will be discussed from various angles, within the context of current Dutch-Flemish education. The presentations and workshops (of over an hour each) are practical and tie in with everyday practice.

The Scroll Ensemble
On Friday morning, the conference will be opened by The Scroll Ensemble, a unique ensemble that takes early music as the starting point for exciting improvisations and concepts. For more information: http://www.thescrollensemble.com/nl/

There will also be a platform to discuss specific aspects, questions and problems facing starting music theorists.
