The aim of this bilingual (English-French) conference is to bring together researchers from instrumental and music pedagogy as well as those from science of performance, music performance and music practices to discuss the contribution of scientific research and technological advancements in music learning and teaching contexts in the twenty-first century.

The symposium aims to provide a dedicated platform for the communication and exchange of ideas amongst researchers in pedagogy, science, technology, performance, musical practice and related disciplines.
