why we do it

We know music teachers are looking for fresh approaches

Hip hop, techno, grime, EDM, drill and house (aka electronic music) are arguably the most widely listened to music styles in the world today, yet they rarely feature in school music classrooms. Many music educators were trained in Western Art Music traditions and struggle to know how to approach teaching electronic music. Applying traditional music teaching approaches simply don't work. A new approach is needed.

EMP is a new wave in music education

Electronic Music Pedagogy (EMP) is based on new ground-breaking research in music education. We recognise that students are struggling to engage with current approaches to school music education and tend to learn in informal and digital contexts outside of school. EMP is about engaging students and creating confident and up-to-date music educators in our schools.
