Popis In 2009, in a review of Hana Adámková Heidrová's book Music-Ecological Issues and Their Place in Contemporary Music Education (Hudebně ekologická problematika a její místo v současné hudební výchově), I wrote to Opus musicum that the concept of music education based on listening to “classical” authors and song singing (from folk to popular) is definitely outdated and that an understanding the sounds of our world proves to be a far more ambitious goal than the above-mentioned anachronistic “national revival” project. At that time my idea was criticized by traditional musicology. Today we find ourselves in a situation where it is obvious that Czech music education and musicology should have solved this problem long ago. Therefore, in recent years and decades, projects have emerged that realize that music - although it is a natural human activity – finds itself at the very top of sonic art. I believe that education to music must start with education to silence, then education to sound and its awareness to the more complicated structures and compositions of sound and finally also music. In my paper I will try to present several theses and suggestions of potential solutions.
