Martin Straus (1946-2019) was one of the music educators of the last decades who attracted attention beyond Luxembourg with his new creative and innovative ideas. His work “Music – Playing with Sound“ which was developed in cooperation with a teacher and a second teacher, is based on a “parameter concept“, in which the six musical parameters – tone color, form, rhythm, dynamics, melody and harmony – are connected to the six activities of singing, playing, moving, composing, listening, recording/understanding so that it results in 36 points of contact for didactic-methodical considerations. The visual symbol is the “Klangmännchen“ (« little sound man“), a cephalopod figure, which, much as a soap bubble, you can see, but which you cannot hear. From this elementary direction of thinking, the “Luxembourg Model“ works well for both non-specialist teachers in the elementary field and for advanced music lessons in general education schools. The first scientific studies have shown that it is also of practical use in special needs education programs. The concept “Music – Playing with Sound“ is suitable for multi-perspective lessons using examples of music from the past and the present as well as for pedagogical challenges in the areas of inclusion and integration.

After some preliminary observations about Europe of regions, this article discuses aspects of music and music education under the viewpoint of interregional cultural interaction and history. The focus is on the situation in Luxembourg. The influence wielded by the neighboring regions is considered in relation to (1) the close proximity bringing together germanophone and francophone (Wallonia, i.e. the French speaking part of Belgium and France) traditions; and in relation to (2) the development of the grand duchy and its stately independence starting in 1815. Furthermore, the author examines the cultural shift initiated by the migration of Italian and Portuguese families at the end of the 19th century and its influence on musical life and music education in Luxembourg.
