Music Education Innsbruck

The Department of Music Education in Innsbruck is the central training center for music teachers in Western Austria. The clear focus on music education, very personal support and the home in the House of Music in the center of Innsbruck make the department a special interface between artistic ability, scientific expertise and didactic know-how.

The department has modern seminar and teaching rooms, over-rooms for students and two rehearsal and lecture halls. Concerts and events take place regularly in the halls of Haus der Musik and at other venues.

In the area of instrumental & vocal pedagogy (IGP) we cooperate with

    Grenzklang is a project based in Tyrol and unique in the entire German-speaking region, which on the one hand offers children of Persian origin an opportunity to promote singing and music-making, while at the same time enabling a connection to their culture and being open to children of all nationalities as well as music of pluralistic cultures. On the other hand, Grenzklang is a practical training programme for future music teachers. This joint intercultural learning envisaged in the project ideally leads to an attitude of all participants, which is the basis for social progress and enables teaching and learning in diversity, equality and democracy. It thus functions as a model for further (music) pedagogical and intercultural offers. Synergy is an essential feature and Grenzklang contributes to strengthening the cultural identity of all participants.
