SIG PRIME Sessions at ISME 2014, Porto Alegre

20. July 2014 - 8:00 to 25. July 2014 - 16:15

The World Conference of the International Society of  Music Education is taking place in Porto Alegre in July 2014.

The conference theme is "Listening to the musical diversity of the world". This provides an opportunity for the music education community to celebrate the immense diversity of music-making that exists across the globe.

The PRIME related submissions this year cover a broad spectrum of disciplines and themes and are a wonderful expression of the many voices that make up our ensemble. Your contributions on the one hand cover the core focus of educational research areas, teacher driven practitioner research in and outside the classroom, teacher training, arts education, and on the other side open up the view to the experience of music in everyday life, music as cultural phenomenon, ethnomusicology and advocacy.

In order to make the thematic relations more visible we have designed a conceptual map which represents how the various contributions fit into the PRIME landscape and how they relate to each other. You can download the map as PDF, or view it online at
