2007, 2008, 2010: International Scientific Conference for MA and PhD Students
Music (and the arts.) Education yesterday, today, tomorrow“ (MEYTT)

2007 and 2008 the international scientific conference for MA and PhD students "Music education yesterday, today, tomorrow" took place in TLU Institute of Fine Arts, initiated and organized by the Department of Music and Associate Professor and Head of the Department Tiina Selke. Since 2010 co-organizers are Gerhard Lock and Marit Mõistlik.

Until now, there were no conferences organized specifically for graduate students in Estonia. Such conferences are not particularly widespread elsewhere in the world (e.g. SysMus10, The Third International Conference of Students of Systematic Musicology, International Forum for Young Musicologists 2010 Yokohama, Japan). Therefore, the 3rd scientific conference for Master and PhD Students' „Music and the arts. Education yesterday, today, tomorrow(MEYTT2010) (15.-17.04.2010) organized by the Department of Music at Institute of Fine Arts of TLU, could be considered as being at the forefront in the world, and it is important to continue to expand the impact of this conference and interdisciplinarity.

MEYTT's main direction is music education but areas of investigation from compositions, music theory, music history to music psychology are integrated as well. Since 2010 the conference has been expanded to include the name and focus of music and the other arts (which is a continuation of the 2009 TLU's major conference „The Changing Face of of Music Education, CFME09 trend). This extension is due to the intensified cooperation between different departments of TLU Institute of Fine Arts (music, choreography, art, applied creativity) in terms of future joint research work. The idea of a joint postgraduate conference has also received the necessary approval and support from Rein Raud, the rector of TLU. MA and PhD students were also invited to the conference CFME09, so we can speak about the concept of continuity from year 2007.
