Musical Futures International returns to Auckland in March 2020 for a two day workshop at Long Bay College.
Teachers will be able to choose from two 1 day options:
Introduction to Musical Futures (for all first time attendees) on Friday March 27 or
Further Into Musical Futures (for teachers who have attended Musical Futures workshops in the past) on Saturday, March 28
Teachers can also combine the two workshops and join us for both days.
Musical Futures believes music learning works best when young people are making music, and when their existing passion for music is reflected and built-upon in the classroom. Musical Futures was established in 2003 and grounded in academic research, is based on the real-world practices of popular and community musicians.
Musical Futures supports teachers around the world with training, networks and resources to deliver practical, engaging, developmental music programs in the classroom. Currently more than 1.5 million students in 71 countries worldwide benefit from their teachers use of the Musical Futures approach. The widespread adoption of Musical Futures in the UK and Australia means that it is now one of the most successful and sustainable music education initiatives in schools in those countries.
