MUSILIB is the project that develops the MultiLib E-Library with new languages and e-books,
and with music soundtracks for each children’s story,
played with traditional instruments of each culture featured in them.
Local musicians along with musicians of ethnic minority cultures play together
and create original music pieces inspired to the stories.
MUSILIB develops also the Children’s Multicultural Music Instruments Library’ with images and stories of each traditional instrument used by the musicians.
Furthermore, MUSILIB designs the Teacher Video Kit to empower teachers in the use of creative writing, storytelling, making music and dancing a story.
To complete this innovative set of resources, the project develops
the ‘MUSILIB by Children – Children's multimedia stories inspired by music instruments’,
with stories, sound-tracks and illustrations created by children and inspired to the Multicultural Music Instrument Library.
All are Open Educational Resources, freely accessible on this platform and on the Coursevo.

MUSILIB and MultiLib answer the need for primary school teachers to acquire
a broader repertoire of teaching strategy
to tackle the challenge of teaching increasingly multiethnic and multilingual classes
MUSILIB and MultiLib enable children to:
• develop a sense of social inclusion
• enhance intercultural understanding
• make children from ethnic minorities proud to share their language,
music and culture
• acquire skills that will contribute to their future employment
in a labour market increasingly requiring multicultural knowledge,
mobility, language skills and ICT competences
• enhance love of reading, literacy, music and artistic skills
