The children I am working with are responding to positively. They are very keen to learn new music and don’t not feel threatened to play. They enjoy the ‘have a go’ and ‘just play’ strategy.
As Musical Futures is a set of values, principles and practical teaching and learning strategies, rather than a fixed curriculum, it is proven to be transferable to a range of international contexts.
Since Musical Futures first started spreading, scaling up and rolling out as a grassroots movement, teachers, practitioners, academics, organisations overseas have been trialling, adapting and applying it in a range of contexts.
Which is why we are proud and excited to be formalising and building on our international links, in order to expand the community of teachers and practitioners using and sharing Musical Futures, and to enable more young people to make music, no matter what the background or circumstance.
Our key international partner is Musical Futures Australia, who are rolling MF out to all schools in Victoria, and are working with the UK team to co-develop programmes, resources and professional development.
We are keen to work with individuals and organisations with an interest in adapting and applying Musical Futures in their schools/teaching contexts.
