Train and Sustain: Music and Outdoor Learning


EMS are offering chamber music ensembles/musicians a unique training opportunity in leading music based outdoor learning projects.

Train and Sustainability will provide training in leading music based outdoor learning projects. Participants will work with Ben Twist (Creative Carbon Scotland) and Alec Thompson-Miller (ACE Voices Aberdeen) to explore outdoor learning and look at ways in which music can help children connect with nature and the environment.

This is not just a one-day training event, Train & Sustainability consists of:

• Training Day – A day of facilitated presentations, discussion and practical ‘hands-on’ workshops from course trainers designed to help you develop and design your own learning experiences to deliver on placements.
Glasgow, Sunday August 13th 2017.

• Placement – You will be provided will a chance to put your new skills into practice in a supported environment. Participating musicians will work with the same group once a week to deliver a 4 week long outdoor learning project. These paid placements will take place at primary schools in East Dunbartonshire between August 28th and September 21st.

• Plenary – A half-day of facilitated discussion, further training and peer to peer sharing reflecting on each ensemble’s experiences and learning on their placements.
Glasgow, Sunday 8th October 2017

Train and Sustainability has been made possible thanks the Scottish Music Centre YMI Training and Continuing Professional Development Fund supported by Creative Scotland.

The cost to attend the training events is £40 per person and each participant will receive £280 payment for completion of contextualised placements.

Musicians are invited to apply as individuals or as an ensemble. Please note that when applying as an ensemble, the majority of your group must attend all three parts of the project (training day, placement and plenary session).

While preference will be given to chamber music ensembles/musicians, applications from ensembles/musicians of other genres will also be considered.

Please contact Danielle Price for details of how to apply.
