Educate·S is a series of collected works suited for teaching purposes that is founded on the tradition in which contemporary composers wrote music in order to consecrate music students in their musical experiences and recognitions. In their time, Bach, Brahms, and Bartók composed music in a condensed form, in which pedagogical regards and artistic ambitions emerged in order for children and young people to explore their musical worlds. In order to ensure that the pieces fit the intended user-group, the composers have been working with an editorial team and received feedback from music school teachers during the process. 

Educate·S consists of pieces for pianoviolinpercussionguitaraccordion, and cello
