On the afternoon of May 10, 2022, Her Majesty Queen Maxima of the Netherlands attended the opening of the conference entitled, Meer Muziek in Mijn Klas (More Music in My Class), held at the Paleis Noordeinde in Den Haag.
Meer Muziek in Mijn Klas Foundation, which organized today’s conference, is committed to:
“…structural music education for all 1.4 million primary school children in the Netherlands and the Caribbean. Music education enlarges the world of a child and contributes to the cognitive, social and creative development of children. The foundation shows how valuable music education is. It increases teachers’ knowledge and establishes regional collaborations between schools and their cultural environment.”
During today’s opening, Her Majesty Queen Maxima gave a speech in front of hundreds of teachers, school leaders, and teacher training students participating in the conference which includes various interactive workshops.
