Getting Started with Musical Futures

Everything you need as you get started with using Musical Futures in your context.

Musical Futures Teacher Resource Pack

This resource pack was first published in 2008 and is the definitive guide to informal learning, classroom workshopping and how to apply these approaches in your school or teaching situation.

Informal Learning

Students acquire skills and know-how via collective decisions and endeavours, with teacher/practitioner as facilitator, in any context – in or out of school. For example, students play music they like with their friends in groups.

Composing and Improvisation

Skill acquisition gained through practical application, teacher as musical leader, in a setting such as a classroom or community context. For example, classroom workshopping and whole class performance.

Transition

This project is designed to be accessible to anyone from a non-specialist primary teacher to specialist practitioners in either phase. Download the documents from the relevant page for your phase.

Modelling Aural Learning

Having been dropped into the ‘deep end’, students are now given more guidance and structure through a broken-down ‘musical model’ of a song.

Instrumental Futures

Musical Futures approaches work brilliantly with ensembles as well as in the classroom and there are some great examples of instrumental teachers applying the pedagogy to one to one tuition too.
