Early Music as Education (EMAE)

Educating is transforming lives through repeated exposure to the unknown, the unfamiliar or the different. Irrespective of age, background and training, the study of the music of European civilisations has the potential to transform individual lives through the acquisition of specialised knowledge and skills, and the development of cultural, social and economic relations.

‘Early music’ is a colloquial name for the musical cultures of the European peoples between the Commercial Revolution of the fifteenth century and the Industrial Revolution of the nineteenth century. In a less narrow sense, ‘early music’ is a way of interpreting European music from the earliest written record to the late nineteenth century according to historical performance practices and, when possible, on period or copies of period instruments.

EMAE is a private limited company and a registered charity based in Liverpool that promotes the cultural, social and economic value of early music through regular educational, recreational and scholarly activities.
