While doing activities with young people, it is very common to use music in a bigger or smaller scale, and in a more conscious or unconscious way. The music can influence the atmosphere that is created in a group, it can transmit emotions and/or words, it can be a fundamental part of one activity or even affect in a negative way when we are not using the right music for the situation.
The conscious use of music, the awareness of its impact on emotions, the right choice for the different moments, the options about public use (copyright, creative commons licenses), the digital tools to work with music, etc… are different aspects not always known and successfully used by trainers, youth leaders and/or workers in the field of youth.
Therefore, the purpose of this training is to develop the participants’ competences in the use of music as a powerful tool in non-formal education activities with young people.
“The Sound of Music IV” is an example of good practice of the Spanish National Agency for the Erasmus Plus Programme. Due to the success of this training concept we are pleased to introduce you the fourth edition of this innovative course, implemented this time, in Iceland
The objectives are as follows:
The course will be inspired in the principles of NFE (e.g.: participant centered approach, flexibility of the training program, group as a mutual learning resource, trainers as facilitators of the learning process, holistic approach, etc) and experiential learning.
The course will combine a wide range of methods coming from the N.F.E. sector together with other techniques coming from the music therapy and the art therapy fields. At this respect it is important to remark that some sessions with music in the course may have certain influence on the participants’ emotions. Please be aware of that.
The course will be eminently practical but brief inputs will set the framework in different moments across the learning process.
There will be flexibility to adapt to the needs of the group and their motivations, within reasonable limits.
The music will not be treated only as theoretical contents to discuss about, but it will be used systematically during the course. Case studies will be conducted to show what may be the most interesting themes according to the purpose and/or situation.
Please, be aware that this training will not go deep into managing different DJ tools and software for mixing music but more how to use the music with different aims with young people. It is neither a course about how to create live music nor a course for professional musicians, still live music will be one of the topics to explore.
This project is financed by the Erasmus+: Youth in Action Programme. Being selected for this course, all costs (accommodation, travel, visa, etc.) relevant to participation in the course will be covered by the NAs or SALTO involved in this project - except a participation fee which varies from call to call and country to country.
