In 2018 Trinity College London and Musical Futures Australia will be working in partnership to develop new resources and approaches for music learning, bringing together teachers from the Musical Futures Australia communities with the aim of engaging more students with music for longer.
The two organisations share a deep commitment to ensuring that musical learning is always a powerful and personal experience for young people. Through Musical Futures’ focus on pupil agency in music teaching and learning, and Trinity’s commitment to nourishing young people’s musical identities through creative and personalised musical assessment opportunities, the project aims to explore what happens when informal learning and examinations meet in the classroom – and what this can offer young people and their teachers.
During the course of the next year the two organisations will be working together and with teachers and students across Australia. Integrating Musical Futures' tried and tested pedagogical practices and approaches to informal learning, with Trinity’s exciting new 'from 2018' Rock & Pop syllabuses' songs and award-winning practice app, Play Trinity Rock & Pop, teachers and students will be immersed in creative live and digital musical experiences.
The partnership aims to encourage the development of a broad range of musical skills and understanding, which can be celebrated through the assessment of their musical progression against Trinity’s robust assessment framework.
