Musical Futures Certification Workshop

This certified two week course will develop and extend the skills of music educators working in all contexts. This engaging and hands-on workshop, open to all independent of familiarity with informal learning approaches, will provide the tools for participants to create sustainable, student-centred, 21 century music learning experiences using informal learning and non formal teaching.

Participants in this workshop can expect to:

  • Discover and explore the principles and practices of informal learning approaches
  • Engage in critical reflection on the application of this approach in participants' own teaching environments
  • Explore curricular connections of the approach in both traditional and alternative music settings (or contexts)
  • Develop their own informal music learning and workshopping skills in small groups and large ensembles
  • Consider uses of technology such as jam hubs, smart phones, tablets, PCs, iPods and music software in musical futures projects (eg. songwriting, composition, performance)

Course Fee: $695.00

This course is also available for graduate credit. If you are interested in this option please contact the Graduate Assistant Audrey Yardley-Jones.
