Projects

Every year EMO hosts various types of projects related to the development of teaching or learning environments, concert activities or corporate welfare.
There are two pedagogical development projects scheduled for the year 2018-2019. Funded by the Finnish National Agency for Education, Uudet kujeet is a project focusing on the professional development of teachers. It aims to increase competence in improvisation, teaching composition, music technology and group management. The two-year teacher exchange project run in co-operation between EMO and the Conservatory of Zürich is realized with funding by the Swiss Movetia and focuses on the mutual sharing of best practices. Both projects are set to develop pedagogical skills according to the new curriculum.

Duurihoitoa – Major Care!

The empowering music of the nursing home concerts brings together several generations. The audience, performers and the assistants all have a chance to enrich their daily routines with new encounters and experiences. The EMO students perform at music sessions tailored to the needs of each nursing home. The program may contain audience-involving acts, such as sing-along sessions.

EMO offers Duurihoitoa concerts in Espoo Service centers such as Puistokartano, Merikartano, Espoonlahti, Soukka, Jänismäki, Huda & Malva, Villa Andante, Hopeakuu, Attendo Olarinpuisto, Service centers for people with memory disorders (Taavi and Vihrelaakso), as well as the home for people with dementia (Villa Tapiola).

In 2018 56 concerts were played in 12 nursing homes.

A hobby in arts strengthens the values of sustainable development and creates common intellectual capital.
