The ability of finding joy in the joy of others – voilà: the secret of happiness – Georges Bernanos 1
Remember your humanity, and forget the rest – Bertrand Russell 2

“Ours is a society in which, through its tyrannical standard of respectability, all the members are goading each other to spoil themselves to the utmost limit of their capacity. […] True happiness is not at all expensive. It depends upon that natural spring of beauty and of life, harmony of relationship.“ – Rabindranath Tagore in Robbery of the soil

AIUME encapsulates our way of building bridges in an atmosphere of mutual respect: Adapting Indian Universals in Music Education. This is about providing access to a culture wherein music has long fostered intercultural collaboration and creativity.

Let’s make a difference and enrich the lives of children, young people and adults by immersing ourselves in melodious music and captivating rhythms – joyfully and spontaneously, with self-confidence yet always together.

  1. French novelist Georges Bernanos quoted by Frédéric Lenoir in La Puissance de la joie[]
  2. “There lies before us, if we choose, continual progress in happiness, knowledge, and wisdom. Shall we, instead, choose death, because we cannot forget our quarrels? I appeal, as a human being to human beings: remember your humanity, and forget the rest. If you can do so, the way lies open to a new Paradise; if you cannot, nothing lies before you but universal death.” – Bertrand Russell quoted by Sarah Bakewell in Humanly Possible: Seven Hundred Years of Humanist Freethinking, Enquiry and Hope[]
