Dear Sir or Madam,

The Department of Music Pedagogy of the Academy of Music in Gdańsk would like to invite for the Third International Convention on Music Pedagogy, the subject of which will be systematics and pragmatics of music pedagogy.
During two previous meetings we established paradigms from the area of pedagogical activities, historical variability of ideals and goals of education. We also traced the level of knowledge of music psychology. The reflection was supported by the experience from practical activities of Polish teachers and Polish scholars. It was, and still is, our priority that music pedagogy is a branch of science with a compact and orderly system of concepts, theorems and methodology.
The aim of the Third International Convention on Music Pedagogy is thus to enrich our resources of information with the experience of teachers from other countries in the existing education systems (art systems, including music pedagogy) and to compare them to Polish experience in this area. Therefore the opinions on the activity of units which educate music teachers for secondary schools, as well as those which educate professional musicians, will be valuable empirical data for us. The results of the studies on graduates of these schools, academies and universities, and the possibility of gaining consecutive degrees by them including the degree of professor are also worth mentioning.
Other, equally important issues include opinions of Polish and foreign teachers and scholars in the field of teaching specific music subjects and issues enriching students? pedagogical (humanistic) knowledge.
We invite you to present your experience from the above-mentioned research areas with the aim of recognizing, as quickly as possible, the specificity of music pedagogy as a discipline and indicating its rightful place in the Polish education system. Our priority is to recognize music pedagogy as the scientific foundation for all artistic activities.
