Title: LEO sings !

  • LEO sings !
  • Diversity of Singing Practices in Europe (DSPE)

Presentation Stéphane Grosclaude (Plate-forme

(Liaisons Arts Bourgogne France)
How do we sing in Europe? How do we teach
singing? What do we sing? Taking as a starting
point the idea that the exchanges, the
confrontations of viewpoints, techniques and
repertoires make people and practices evolve, 5
countries and 8 partners have joined together in
the two-year cooperation project LEO sings!. More
than an artistic practice, the voice is a social
and cultural indicator that displays the
development of societies.
Collecting and sharing the diversity of European
singing practice through exchange, training,
documentation and dissemination of diverse
European singing experiences, including the study
of multiple singing cultures and non-formal
training programmes at all levels and for
specific target groups (choral conductors, solo
and choir singers, singing teachers) of all
vocal styles, with the goal of enriching local
practice by learning from each other, and
encouraging a European-wide exchange of current

The first session in Barcelona How to become
an amateur or professional singer in Europe? 5
9 February 2014
  • Singing in school
  • Singing in music school
  • Singing at university and professional levels
  • Building bridges between professional and
  • Study visits (in schools and music schools) and
    observation of rehearsals of different choirs

Singing in school
  • Collective singing practices in school is
    determined by
  • Community
  • Media
  • Policy
  • Elements of tension identified in this context
  • intrinsic value of community singing vs community
    singing having an instrumental impact on other
  • degree to which opportunities for community
    singing were universal or restricted
  • capacity of community singing policies, schemes
    and opportunities to evolve

Singing in Music school
  • Observations
  • Existing diversity in the European landscape of
    singing at music schools, resulting from
    different national traditions, and diversity
    within countries,
  • Resulted from bottom-up processes,
  • Younger generations are demanding more
  • Questions
  • How to adapt the supply of music education to
    changing tastes?
  • The role of music schools as mediators or
    facilitators of quality music education,
  • How to ensure accessibility for all ?
  • The transfer of good practices

Singing at University professionnal level
  • Increasingly complex definition of the profile of
    a music teacher
  • What extent universities are able to cater for
    these complex needs ?
  • Singers could be able to develop a career in a
    variety of professional contexts
  • Consider the role of coaches and other
    professionals providing insight and guidance into
    new career routes, as well as the design of
    further education programmes adapted to these
    emerging opportunities (mapping exercise of
    diverse career paths for professional singers )

 World café

  • - Training vocal teachers How to build a broad
