Every child has great abilities by nature. Everybody is primordially gifted. Being a child, everybody could draw, sing, dance or compose poetry. But unfortunately this ability can end. The more the child grows up the less of it remains with him. Everybody should do their best not to lose it within their childhood. Only a bright talented teacher is capable of discerning the unique individual talent of the disciple and chooses the best way for its nurturing and development.

Over the world, there are many trends and school of pedagogy. Every teacher’s experience, knowledge and skills are unique. We encourage teachers of all arts to unite their efforts. And this is the main goal of the association “Art and Education in the XXI Century”.

Since 1994, in cooperation with other organizations, our association has devolved a wide program that includes International Forums, Festivals and "Pedagogy Schools". Great success has been achieved in Festivals and Forums in Poland (1994, 1997, 2000, 2003, 2007, 2009, 2011), in Russia (1995), in Greece (1996, 2002), in France (1997), in Italy (1998, 2000, 2007), in Italy and Austria (2002 – 2012), in Denmark and Sweden (2001, 2003), in Portugal (2004 – 2007, 2009, 2011), in Finland (2004 – 2011), in the Czech Republic(2007, 2008)in Spain (2010) and in India (2012). Since 1998, using the Ukrainian Composers' House as a base, we organized “The International School of Music, Pedagogy and Performing Mastery” as well as competitions for young performers “21th Century Art”. The teachers who participated in our programs improved their professional skills and were able to share their experiences for colleagues from different countries all over the world. The young laureates of the competitions are given the chance to perform in various concerts in different countries.

We invite teachers, students, young musicians and classical music lovers to participate in our programs.
