On 19–20 April 2013, the city of Kielce hosted the Fifth All-Poland Music Teachers’ Methodological Conference, under the specialist patronage of the Institute of Music Education of Jan Kochanowski University and the Fryderyk Chopin Institute. The programme included a presentation of the Association of Music Teachers’ nationwide programme ‘Leaders of Musical Animation’, realised with the support of the Fryderyk Chopin Institute and the Ministry of Culture and National Heritage.

Educators from the Fryderyk Chopin Museum outlined the Fryderyk Chopin Institute’s educational programmes and activities that are pursued during lessons offered by the FCM (descriptions of al. our lessons can be found on our website: http://chopin.museum/pl/events/education).

Katarzyna Kasica and Marta Tabakiernik of the Chopin Museum emphasised the role of the teacher and educator in the overall process of the development (not just artistic) of the listener and pupil and the fact that, regardless of didactic aids and media, an inspirational teacher is capable of discovering children’s talent and, with his or her own passion, being an example for them. Music and sounds lie within the simplest and most ordinary objects; we just need to look at them in a creative way. Teachers of music and music history and educators are usually masters of such creative thinking, as they are in contact with art every day.
