Transdisciplinary approach to the musical education

Transdisciplinarity can be added as a way of reporting to the musical phenomenon in adolescent education. Starting from the transdisciplinary aim to form good citizens in the future, we will identify a certain way of thinking that integrates, responding to the need for meaning and restoring the balance between the physical, biological and spiritual nature for a future adult, a member responsible for societies that are in a continuous change. In the field of non-vocational Romanian public education, students access music through the classes of musical education, a subject under the auspices of the present cultural paradigm characterized by the lack of correlations and of a coherent vision upon the world and knowledge. The benchmarks offered by this approach helps to evaluate the role of the musical education in the present and in this context, offering new perspectives upon theory and practise.

The Heart of the Matter: Music and Art in Family Therapy

The Heart of the Matter invites therapists from all disciplines to consider the use of music and art in their work with families. It introduces systemic music and art ideas, giving clinical examples from practice, and a rationale for using each technique. Conversations with therapists who have explored and incorporated the techniques into their work are shared, and include both personal and professional responses to incorporating new methods in practice. Through a back drop of exploration into what creativity is, the history of the arts in therapy, and consideration of what happens when we use words, the case for music and art to be part of practice with families is presented. This book is more than a handbook of techniques; it explores who we are as therapists, our challenges and our resourcefulness, as we operate in multiple systems to bring about positive change.

Music in the time of coronavirus

Musicians and music lovers are hit hard by the COVID-19 pandemic. After all, music needs community, but social distancing measures prevent rehearsals and concerts, cutting musicians off from their audience. In many places, musicians are now coming up with creative ways to close this gap, especially via the Internet. Music thus creates new, virtual communities, which is an exciting phenomenon for musicology. To study this further, Melanie Wald-Fuhrmann, Director at the Max Planck Institute for Empirical Aesthetics, has launched an survey together with colleagues from five other European countries. In this interview, she talks about the goals and the idea behind it.
