MUS-E, a IYMF's programme
The MUS-E Programme

MUS-E  "ARTS AT SCHOOL" is a programme of the International Yehudi Menuhin Foundation (IYMF) concentrates on the development of the child from an early age through the arts.

The fundamental principle of MUS-E® is that art should be part of daily education, accessible to all and therefore to open new possibilities of expression and ways of looking at life and people. The project promotes social integration and aims to reduce levels of violence, racism and social exclusion amongst the young. The MUS-E® programme intends particularly to help those children coming from challenging environments to begin the road of personal fulfilment through music, singing, drama, painting, dance and all art disciplines.

One of the most important elements of the programme is that professional artists come into the primary classroom to give classes on a regular basis.

Working in both inner city areas and rural villages, the artists of MUS-E® introduce new ways of thinking and creating, in order to stimulate children’s harmonious development.

The IYMF is responsible for the international coordination of MUS-E®, which is established in 12 European countries and Israel.


    * Currently there are 1,000 artists working with 50,000 children in 450 primary schools.
