Music for all children – why and how?

Talk
How can we create music environments in schools that allow children from all layers of society to engage in music activities?
19 Nov 14:30 - 15:30
Location: Aaben Dans

This question has been systematically addressed in the Scandinavian countries through different forms of teacher-musician collaborations during the last 20 years. However, even though teacher-musician collaborations can be highly valuable they can also be challenging in the sense that the different professional groups represent different traditions and engage in different roles. Furthermore, research indicates that less privileged children are somehow still excluded from these music environments. Accordingly, music teaching seems to reinforce cultural and socioeconomical differences in society rather than the opposite.

In the event, you can experience Ph.D. and teacher Finn Holst present significant national and international research results.

After this, teacher and musician Anders Hvidberg will present a local innovative case from Roskilde that exemplifies how a creative music environment can be built in a school context.

The event is moderated by Trine Ankerstjerne.
