Musical Futures

New open-access online course from Musical Futures

Musical Futures International has launched #MFLearn19, a new six-week online course which focuses on the informal learning practices of popular musicians, using the five principles identified by Lucy Green in her book, How Popular Musicians Learn

The overall aim is to develop a better understanding of how these principles can transfer into the classroom. Each week will focus on a different principle with a different guest speaker.

​The main content is generated by the participants through blogging, discussion, networking and sharing of practice. The course is free of charge and open to anyone who would like to take part.
