Summary The 21 month project „PRACTICAL MUSIC“ enables students at „Konservatorium Wien“ to receive practical training abroad. Main part of the curriculum at Konservatorium Wien is practical oriented. Students must play in orchestras and ensembles, have to do lesson with a tutor and most important get regular lesson in their main instrument (up to 50 % of the curriculum is practical). The main target group for the project are students over all 12 departements (conducting and composition, keyboard instruments, string instruments, wind and percussion instruments, elementary music teaching, jazz, early music, singing and opera, musical theatre, drama, modern dance pedagogy, ballet). These students should make part of their formation in another institution for postsecondary music education in Europe. In addition it is planned that students do parts of their master or bachelor thesis abroadLegal status: Konservatorium Wien is an institution for higher education in the field of music and dramatic arts (post secondary). The owner is 100% the city of Vienna (state owned). The long-term strategy of Konservatorium Wien is to implement in the next study year bachelor and master degrees in all departements. In addition to that the ECTS system is established to enable better comparison and recognition. The needs that are addressed in the project are obvious and of high political relevance for the European society, culture and economy. Training and vocational education abroad should have visible learning effects, which can be distinguished in an increase of the professional qualifications (esp. increase the artistic competences) and an increase of the social competences (to get used to a new orchestra, to communicate with other musicians, to see the cultural differences in performing and communication). The mobility-activities should be based on an input-output strategy, so before returning home the student should have played resp. performed abroad (in a concert, a dance performance, a role in a drama performance) to have a clear output about the work that has been done. The project should be carried out in the study year 2005/2006 and year 2006/2007. The main focus of the project is at the beginning the training and project-work between Austria, the UK (Manchester, London), Germany and Italy. The partnership should be extended in the next study year to other countries. Konservatorium Wien plans to send 4 – 6 students per semester (minimum 3 month) to the mentioned countries.
