Spend the day with an experienced Musical Futures teacher who has successfully used Musical Futures to grow their department and increase the uptake of music at Key Stage 4.
The day will also explore two key aspects of the pedagogy and the practicalities skills required to introduce Musical Futures.
The Informal Learning in the music classroom model aims to enhance student motivation, enjoyment and skill-acquisition in music lessons by tapping into the real-life learning practices of popular musicians. It is designed particularly with the Year 9 (13-14) age group in mind, however the informal learning model has been successfully adapted for use across key stages three and four
Non formal teaching (classroom workshopping) is designed to introduce teachers/practitioners to the process of large-group composition and gain the confidence to attempt this approach, integrating and embedding it into classroom practice.
The approaches covered in this course are recommended for use primarily at Key Stages 3 and 4. However, they can also help to structure an approach to learning and skill development for young people for those working in the non-formal sector such as:
- Heads of Music
- Teachers interested in practical approaches for composing with classes
- Secondary Music specialists
- Instrumental teachers
- Trainee music teachers
- Newly Qualified music teachers
- Community music practitioners
- Youth workers.
