Over in the UK, #mufuchat has been going strong for 4 years now. Teachers gather at the same time each week to talk about the successes and challenges of Musical Futures in the classroom. Now there’s #mufuoz chat, every Wednesday night for music teachers across Australia to join the conversation.

 

How do I take part?

Remember, if you don’t include the hashtag, then the other participants won’t see your tweet.

Do I need any special software?

No software is required to participate in #mufuoz but we recommend using Tweetdeck for the Twitter chat.

Tweetdeck will allow you to create a continuous search for our hashtag – #mufuoz This will update constantly with the latest tweets in the discussion.

We hope to see as many of our Australian friends there as possible!

 

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.

Yesterday’ss RSL course was absolutely outstanding. The school was awe inspiring and just walking round the corridors gave me some excellent ideas to implement at my own school. With regards to the RSL aspect of the course, I now have a strong understanding on how to run it and know how my assignment briefs should look etc. etc.
