First China Conference on Music Education supported by NAMM

Published: ASIA

CHINA: A group of approximately 1,500 Chinese music educators, researchers and post-graduate students convened for the first China Conference on Music Education during October’s Music China. Hosted by the China Society for Music Education (CSME) in partnership with NAMM, the conference welcomed educators from China and the US to provide insights into different teaching methodologies and best practices.

‘In 2006, we held the Music Education Summit, which played a significant role in developing China’s music education theory and sharing best practices,’ stated conference organiser Wu Bin, secretary general of the China Society of Music Education. ‘Nine years later, NAMM proposed to hold a China music education conference during the Music China show, and it had a particular resonance for us. Within two weeks, registration for the conference exceeded 1,500, demonstrating a warm welcome from music educators and practitioners as well as the great influence of our society and the invited speakers.’

‘We hope this event helped to support China’s developing music education programmes with forward-looking, relevant and engaging programming,’ added Betty Heywood, NAMM director of international affairs. ‘This first free subscription conference in China brought together leading lights and post-graduates who share NAMM’s vision of a more musical world where all children have the opportunity to learn music.’

‘Compared with nine years ago, today, we have a quite different situation and development level thanks to NAMM’s influence in the world and its support to us,’ continued Mr Wu. ‘For sure, we will focus on the future, and we hope that NAMM will continue to support the development of music education in China. We will also exert our utmost efforts to drive the development of education in China and further communication between China and the US in music.’
