FOR NON- RESEO MEMBERS
Society has changed significantly over the past decade. Music students learn from their VET Music Educators harmony, creative techniques to compose new music etc during their studies at Music Institutions. Composers are expected to meet with orchestras, ensembles etc interested in commissioning a piece of music. Due to the new modes of exploitation and funding issues of commissioners, an update of the skills is needed in order to have a sustainability of composers projects and their employability.
VET Music Educators are essential in the process of the training and subsequent introduction into employment of Music students. VET Music Educators have to be equipped with knowledge, technical competencies, hard and soft skills and practicals tools to meet the new challenges. They demand a methodology to support music students to improve their employability in this new labour market.
