European Music Trails - Travelling Musicians
Didactic Materials and Workbook
These didactic materials "Travelling Musicians"were developed in the context of the project "European Music Trails", which is funded by the EU and started in 2018. The project encompasses concerts, workshops and a touring exhibition, which can be visited at different venues in all three participating countries of the project, Germany, Lithuania and Norway.
Within the scope of this project teaching trainees of Leipzig University have co-developed a workbook. This publication addresses teachers as well as students of grammar and secondary school. It offers links to several topics of the syllabus and is supposed to help teachers provide their students with a different perspective on an active cultural heritage.
The publication's centre stage take the three musicians Clara Schumann (Germany), Edvard Grieg (Norway) and Mikalojus Konstantinas Čiurlionis (Lithuania), whose paths in life have crossed in Leipzig.
Students who work with this didactic material will learn about the life and work of Clara Schumann as a woman in the 19th centurey and about Leipzig as a historical city of music with visiting musicians from different countries and backgrounds. The material also offers impulses for lessons in younger classes, e.g. the material about travelling in the 19th century. The active inclusion of local institutions invite to do field trips and provides material on different topics for project weeks and interdisciplinary lessons for all class levels. Every topic within the workbook can be used by the teacher without circumstances, even in a stand-in class. The publication holds a lot of illustrations and short and informative texts as well a topical city maps, to be solved tasks and a number of riddles and games on about 40 pages.
