There are teachers and schools that know how to inspire young people to actively make music, with new ideas and splendid concepts – and these achievements should be acknowledged and honored with the European School Music Prize.

Moreover, the aim of the ESP is to document outstanding and exemplary instances of creative work with musical instruments at schools, and to make them available to the public. This way, awareness and appreciation for school music classes should be achieved, and the musical education – as an essential component of an integral education – as well as the active music making should be promoted. 

By making the video documentations available to the public, the awarded projects and achievements become effective also for other teachers and schools, and may in turn serve as inspiration for new ideas and concepts.
