The ISME Commission on the Education of the Professional Musician
Pages 5

Undergirding the vision of the international society for music education (ISME) Commission on the Education of the Professional Musician is the belief that any discussion or action pertaining to the education and training of professional musicians must be sensitive to the roles and status that musicians have in various societies and cultures. The several ISME Commissions and the ISME Forum offer members opportunities to explore a specialised area in greater depth than might otherwise be possible. Through the Commissions and Forum, ISME members share mutual interests and gather, collate and disseminate information on developments in their specialised fields within music education. The mission of the ISME Commission on the Education of the Professional Musician is to engage in and promote a variety of activities in international and local settings that: foster the recognition of the many modes of educating and training musicians as practised by various societies and cultures.
