Balanced musical education has several components. Creation is increasingly recognized as an important element in the development of young musicians. If there is a seemingly natural complicity between music creators and educators, there are still many steps before their collaboration is well integrated and understand the strengths and needs of the other.

This roundtable will discuss the steps that have been taken in this area in each country to share success stories, and to better understand the issues surrounding the integration of musical creativity in music education. In addition, participants will address the question of how to create better networking between artists and educators, both nationally and internationally. How can these two natural partners they know better, and find more effective ways, more efficient, and more enjoyable to work together?
