ISME works with partners which are engaged in music education activities. The aim is to work together to strengthen and support each other's work in music education and to be a place for global dialogue.

Partnerships aims and objectives

The overarching aim of ISME's partnerships is to strengthen and support each other’s work in the area of music education.

ISME aims to be a place for global dialogue among leaders of associations as well as individual members of ISME.
