All the news from Musical Futures International
Will you pledge to #talklessplaymore in your music lessons this year?
Our #talklessplaymore campaign has been inspired by the willingness of Musical Futures teachers to share their experiences, both formative and the performances that are showcased during lessons and in concerts across the world.
We want to amplify the music that matters to our students by celebrating music lessons that start with the music and build learning from there.
Since its inception, Musical Futures has sought to engage with teachers in classrooms choosing to learn from and respond to what was happening in the classroom whilst growing a community of teachers who were willing to share and reflect honestly on their own practice and the responses and feedback from their students.
So as more teachers got on board with the take, use, innovate and share ethos that has always been an essential part of what Musical Futures is, classroom practice has helped to shape what started out as a 2 year research project into one of the leading global education initiatives of its time.
Whether you use Musical Futures or not, we would love to hear what your students are performing and creating in your classroom this year.
Here's how to get involved:
1) Register to join Musical Futures and you will be sent our comprehensive Musical Futures teacher resource pack
2) Make sure you have permissions in place to share student work via social media, within your own school policy
3) Use #talklessplaymore on any posts that you make and share your video or audio recordings on any of the following channels:
We are looking forward to forward to a rocking 2018 and we hope you can be part of our #talklessplaymore 2018 campaign to ensure that students really do have a musical future!
