Abstract english

In higher music education, all over the world, there has been an increased interest in reshaping the curriculum in order to provide the tools needed by musicians and music teachers in order for them to function in a global society. Many institutions have opened up to new genres like traditional folk music, world music, jazz and popular music. As a consequence, new didactic and pedagogic perspectives have found their way into teaching practices and students have been exposed to a multitude of different approaches to teaching and learning. The Nordic joint master study program GLOMAS is an effort in this direction.
