Improvise to Improve

17 - 21 August 2015
Metropolia University of Applied Sciences


Three is a charm! Third and final session of the improvisation project opens the autumn season.
A week of sharing experiences and methods in order to promote improvisation and improve music pedagogy.
A recipe for a good Nordplus course? Mix together group sessions, concerts and jams, sprinkle with movement and dance, stir in some sauna, top off with a freshly made impro-opera and enjoy!

Girl Power in Jazz

25 - 30 August 2015
Royal Academy of Music Aarhus/Aalborg


Someone recently said that Girl Power is the new "It" movement - so "Girl Power in Jazz" is the new "It" project!
In jazz, a woman's place is behind the mic? No way! Yet, females still remain a minority in jazz. Our project tackles that issue by featuring all-female bands only. Seminars, ensembles, concerts, circlesongs and sofa talks - the floor is yours, girls!

IRC Forum 2015

19 - 21 October 2015
Royal Danish Academy of Music


Wonderful wonderful Copenhagen is ready to host the Nordplus coordinators end of October! With the main topic Increasing student mobility, the presentations, workshops and discussions focus on what is decisive for Generation Y students when making decisions about their studies and mobility and how we as institutions can adapt our information and services to accommodate them.
Combined with network updates, IP reports and planning, ExeCom elections and an optional NOAS workshop, IRC Forum 2015 is an all-inclusive meeting package!

Stay tuned for more information available soon at http://www.nordplusmusic.net/index.php?id=411

Happy Nordplus summer 2015!
