Research output: Contribution to journalArticleScientificpeer-review


The surface shared by music and languages was observed in the European Music Portfolio project (2009-2012;, the aim of which was to support teachers in their profession, by combining theories with methodology and practices. One of the tools developed was the international CPD course for teachers. The success of these courses was measured in an e-questionnaire that was addressed to the participating teachers. One of the most interesting results reported, was a better focus on the learning processes of children due to the experiences of integrating music and languages. How can this valuable information benefit the development of initial teacher education?
