Designing the educational and learning behaviour based on gaming principles, that’s what Ludodidactics is all about. Ludodidactics focus on the student’s motivation and enjoyment of playing and learning: the game is on!


Creativity is essential in improvising and composing but equally important in performing music. In mix, we put creativity in the limelight of interaction and authentic expressiveness!


With the mix insight into diversity, we want to help you become more aware of the differences between your students. Mix offers testimonies, exercises and reflection material to get to work with the power of diversity.

Welcome to the mix Music Education Platform!  

We are thrilled that you are here! 

What can you find on the platform? We give you a brief overview.  

What? mix innovates!

By using mix Music Education Platform, you will discover new things. You will discover helpful things to take you further or to try out in your own class. We work with music education professionals, pedagogical specialists and community builders to create a place where you can find ideas, stories and practical advice. This is how we help you make a difference in your daily classroom practice.

How? mix is an e-learning platform

Mix presents these relevant topics for music education:

  • Ludodidactics
  • Creativity
  • Diversity

By creating a mix-account you can respond to the questions we present next to the articles. In this way, you indicate in what way the mix content is of personal interest to you. The bookmarks you set in this way can be found organised on your account. This allows you to compose a personal course, or better yet, to create a digital personalised library with music education as the main theme!

By fully personalising your account, you can customise the content of mix. We offer you the chance to map out your own evolution. This will give you an insight into your personal educational opportunities and ambitions. Now that is professionalisation made to measure!

We invite you to share your experiences and insights during your explorations.

Go for it!

The unrelenting search for new ways to further the education of music (and the arts in general) have been a staple ingredient of the Dutch cultural scene. To have this included in this project, is a tremendous honour for us.”

For me keeping up with my teaching methods with the changing world is important — without forgetting about the traditional values that define classical music.”



Laura Raudaskoski, flute teacher

“I am constantly updating my knowledge and practical skills as both a teacher and a musician. While working as a flute teacher, flutist and an allround organizer in the field of classical music, I have been happy to be part of the team developing these tools for the MIX-platform.”

Artistic development and technical mastery are central here and ensure that pupils are able to translate existing reality. In this way, they learn to challenge themselves and society and to push back frontiers…”

It resulted in Cecilia, a method for Musical and Cultural Education. To guide and accompany colleagues in their didactic quest, that is my perspective on the future.”
