Dear Friends!

Welcome to the website of the European Association for Music in Schools (EAS), which is dedicated to music teachers in pre-school, primary, secondary and higher education, as well as to the musicians, technicians and students in secondary schools and colleges. As the National Co-ordinator of EAS, I welcome all those who wish to use their gifts, educational creativity or authority to influence music in both schools and the wider world and to contribute towards greater co-operation within the European family of music teachers. The pedagogical and musical culture of the Czech Republic has played a significant role in the past and this remains one of our great national treasures even to this day. For this reason, the inspiring creativity of our teachers in the Czech, Moravian and Silesian lands has much to offer both students and teachers of music in European countries, just as teachers from other countries can inspire us in return. Encouraging, maintaining and developing the musical identity of individual nations is an important part of the work of EAS and a recognised pan-European value!

Please therefore accept my invitation not only to browse through the EAS website, but also to become an active member and join in the exchange of ideas in this European organisation. Our primary goal is for good music to enter the lives of every child, student and adult and for this to encourage understanding and a sense for art, beauty and life itself…
