5th MOMUSI Music and Education Meeting in San Juan – Cuyo Region

rescheduled from 24 October 2020

The MOMUSI – music movement for girls and boys – is a non-profit organization that was born in 1996 for nuclear musicians, composers, authors, interpreters, teachers and other professionals from Argentina dedicated to the creation, transmission and diffusion of music for the youngers. Since its creation, MOMUSI is actively working on the recovery of sounds, voices, songs and games dedicated to childhood.

The 5th Meeting of Music and Education of the MOMUSI in San Juan (Cuyo Region) is organized by the joint work between the Department of Music and the Secretariat of Extension of the Faculty of Philosophy, Humanities and Arts (FFHA) belonging to the National University of San Juan (UNSJ) and the Musical Education Supervision Area of the Ministry of Education of the province, among other collaborators. The event is virtual within the framework of the Preventive and Compulsory Lockdown decreed by the national authorities due to the health emergency that affects both the educational and artistic spheres. The event includes presentations, discussion tables, and workshops. These activities are aimed at the general public and especially at teachers and future teachers who can be multipliers of the guidelines promoted by this event. The event will be developed using a video conferencing service.

The words pronounced by MOMUSI in the document “Music for childhoods in the new social context” orients the actions of 2020 to face the challenges of this complex scenario. To raise the profile of the importance of all aspects of sound in our world is quite important for MOMUSI and that is why we would like our event to be listed in the International Year of Sound calendar as part of the activities that are promoted by the International Commission for Acoustics.
