Training Course

26 February - 5 March 2015 | Mollina (Málaga), Spain

"Music was my first love and it will be my last.Music of the future and music of the past.To live without my music would be impossible to do.In this world of troubles,my music pulls me through".Here a course about the use of music in youth activities!
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 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 skills of the participants in the use of music as a tool in non-formal education activities with youth. OBJETIVES The objectives are as follows: 1. Provide participants with a theoretical framework of music as a transmitter of emotions 2. Create awareness of the influence and the impact music can have (both positive and negative) in the mood / during the development of non-formal educational activities 3. Develop the skills of the participants in the creation of thematic music by purpose (eg. music for teamwork, for reflection, for energizing, for creating groups,...) 4. Develop the ability of participants to create atmospheres (music, distribution of the space ...) that promote or encourage the learning of young people in NFE activities 5. Provide the participants with digital tools related to music (to create playlists, edit, search, playback, music without royalty) 6. Support participants in the implementation of competences acquired 7. Provide a space for the exchange of experiences and resources between participants (in music and NFE with youth material) 8. Discover the value of Erasmus +: Youth in Action, as a program for developing youth activities. METHODOLOGY We will use a non-formal education methodology, based on learning centered on the participants, active participation and process according to their interests and degree of involvement. There will be flexibility to adapt to the needs of the group and their motivations, within reasonable limits. There will be a balance between theoretical concepts, practical learning and use of concrete and useful tools. 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. Learning by doing!
