CEMPE develops knowledge and experience to strengthen the music performance education and to support performance students in search for artistic excellence and towards the music community of tomorrow.  

Oslo lectures in Music Theory Pedagogy

Curious students and teachers will have noticed that the Norwegian Academy of Music has hosted a number of outstanding international scholars in the field of music theory and its pedagogy over the past several years. Between 2018 and 2022 CEMPE has organized lectures by guests, such as Prof. Robert Gjerdingen, Prof. William Caplin, and Danuta Mirka.
As part of the project “Current Trends in Music Theory Pedagogy (CTMTP)” two of the Oslo Lectures have now been published.
