The National Music Education Conference – Love Learning Hall
Music education, relying on the unique and complex system of the music industry, requires practitioners to equip good professional skills and business sense. In order to make the most of high-quality education resources, it is high time to activate the education consciousness among the public and create an atmosphere for music education across the country.
The National Music Education Conference, highlighting the exposition this year, will be held at the same time. It is led by the National Music Education Service Alliance, in collaboration with the National Association of Music Merchants (NAMM) and the Confederation of European Music Industries (CAFIM). More than 3,000 music education practitioners from both home and abroad are expected to attend the conference.
The conference aims to create "an elegant life, a beautiful China," attempting to popularize musical instrument learning and music appreciation. Well-known educationists and musicians, like Prof. Haihong Zhou and Mr. Hai Yu, will then present the teaching method of musical instruments, sharing the charm of music; international specialists and scholars will bring in the advanced ideas and trends of music education from the United States and European countries. Based on the keynote speech, more themed speeches will be addressed, and a series of roundtable forums will be led by the speakers. Meanwhile, the organizer has also called for workshops from the public to show the fruit of music education practices both in and outside the national education system. Moreover, the evening concert will become a platform for the invited guests and the audience to enjoy music together, which also creates an opportunity for them to discuss hot issues in music theory, creation and education.
The Love Learning Hall was created for the first exposition, which focused on music and art education. This year, the cooperation with professional music academies, including the Chinese Conservatory of Music, Central Conservatory of Music, and Beijing Contemporary Music School, has been furthered. Teachers and students from these academies are invited to the performances, seminars, and competitions, which ensures the professional level of the exposition.
Break the traditional expo mode, create a lifestyle experience space
This exposition has selected the leading enterprises in the musical instrument industry and gathered the well-designed and creative lifestyle products to present in the four halls. It turns out that the musical instrument brands and the lifestyle product brands have attracted each other's potential customers, and the increasing interaction between them has redefined their potential market and helps optimize their product design. It has also provided inspiration for the industry leaders to create crossover businesses opportunities and for music lovers to personalize their lifestyle.
The speeches and forum, breaking out the traditional teaching mode, have invited crossover artists to reveal the close relationship between music and life, which will be well received by the audiences. Apart from that, conferences and training programs for traders will also be held as part of the National Music Education Conference.
