The PAMS participants met in 2014 for the inaugural Asia-Pacific Music Summit. The four-day event took place 2-5 April at the Sydney Conservatorium of Music and co-hosted by Beijing Central Conservatory of Music. PAMS was initiated to create closer ties between the institutions and build the region as a driving force of music education and culture. While collaborations have existed for some time between many institutions in the region, the summit marked the first gathering of deans and presidents of the partner schools.
Sydney Conservatorium of Music’s Dean Dr Karl Kramer described the conference as ‘a unique opportunity to meet face to face with our peers from the region’s top conservatoriums and discuss best practices in music education and performance. While we all assume the Western music tradition of teaching, each institution is mutually exclusive in terms of how it operates. We are 12 unique case studies, each with different expertise to share. The summit is a starting point to forming stronger human connections between the institutions to encourage greater and more regular dialogue across the region’.
The 2015 Asia-Pacific Music Summit will be hosted by Beijing Central Conservatory of Music in April 2015.
The 2016 Asia-Pacific Music Summit will be hosted by Yong Siew Toh Conservatory of Music, National University of Singapore in April 2016.
The 2017 Asia-Pacific Music Summit will be hosted by the University of Auckland’s School of Music in April 2017.
