From classic acoustic instruments and electric guitars to hardware and software, as well as high-grade lectures, tutorials, workshops and panel discussions, Musikmesse is an important source of information for visitors from the educational sector. The exhibitors in this field include trade associations, music universities and academies, etc.
At Music4Kids young visitors have the chance to take their first musical steps and test instruments. On site, there will be a team of music teachers from the Frankfurt Music Academy to help participants how to use the instruments properly, so they quickly play their first notes and gain inspiration for making music themselves.
The area is split into different musical-instrument segments, so each group of instruments forms its own experiential world. The spectrum covered stretches from classic percussion, via guitars and string instruments, to electronic instruments, such as e-drums and digital pianos.
As in previous years, kindergarten groups from the entire Rhine-Main region are invited to participate.
Music4Kids is supported by music teachers from:
Music Education Forum
The Music Education Forum is aimed at everyone from the field of musical education. On all days, lectures, panel discussions and workshops not only offer advantageous insights into new kinds of music teaching for different target groups but also spotlight the prevention and therapy of musician diseases and reveal future perspectives for music, culture and education.
Music making by app or tablet, classic or digital sheet music, a career as a music producer – these are just a few of the many topics you can find out about. On the adjoining exhibition area, educational institutes and associations present their broad spectrum of facilities and services. And you can discover everything that conservatoires, academies and music colleges have to offer.
