INTO SCHOOL and Future Songwriting were presented at the Creative Transformations Conference, held in Helsinki as one of the event series celebrating Finland’s presidency of the Commission of the European Union. Organized by Finland’s Ministry of Education and Culture, the conference saw inspiring talks on the key role of culture in sustainable development, and how policies can buttress democracy and tackle present and future challenges with a focus on culture and education. Participants mostly consisted of culture policy officials from national governments and international organisations like UNESCO, the Council of Europe and the OECD.
One of the key principles of the INTO SCHOOL and Future Songwriting project, creativity in the classroom will also receive support at policy level in the EU. “We look forward to launching the CREASSESS project during the Finnish Presidency. The objective is to further improve the assessment of creative and critical thinking skills in schools and to provide new tools to support teachers and students in this.”– as Mr. Navracsics confirmed.
After closing two very successful pilots in Finland, the project will move to Germany and France, while continuing in new schools in Finland. Stay tuned for news on how INTO SCHOOL attempts to promote music education and creative learning globally.
We are happy to announce the successful launch of Future Songwriting, a European project based on the INTO SCHOOL concept.
Two school pilots began this March, in Santamäen Koulu and the bilingual French-Finnish School HRSK in Helsinki. In the next 2 years, 15 school pilots are coming to Germany, France and Finland.
Future Songwriting introduces a new model to music education. Using creativity and digital tools and activating children’s innate potential the project aims to create the future of teaching and learning music.
The two-year project is coordinated by Teosto, and is co-funded by the Creative Europe programme of the European Commission.
Creativity in the classroom
Children have innate creativity and ability to engage with music. Future Songwriting aims to give room for their potential by putting music creation in the foreground. Music is taught through a creative process using digital tools where everyone can contribute. The concept is based on a comprehensive model developed by INTO SCHOOL: an award-winning Finnish innovation.
Digital Tools for All
As a first step of Future Songwriting pilots, teachers receive training to get familiar with the technical tools and methodology. Tools and training are tailored to suit all levels of skill, and facilitate a creative and rewarding process. The involvement of active musicians ensures that participants receive up-to-date knowledge and a hands-on experience.
The University of Arts Sibelius Academy, the University of Cologne and Musical Futures accompany the project, observing the model based on creativity and student involvement. Research carried out by the Music Technology Group from University Pompeu Fabra will focus on the technological aspect of the model. Future Songwriting brings together scholars, educators, musicians, teacher educators and the music industry to collaboratively develop better and more creative learning environments and equip teachers with knowledge and tools to facilitate creative music-making in their classrooms.
European Cooperation through Music
School pilots in Germany, France and Finland, coordinated research by institutions based in four European countries, and project communication by Artisjus, the Hungarian association representing composers and musicians makes Future Songwriting a collaborative effort reaching not only across countries, but also professional fields and age-groups, through the universal language of music.
Future Songwriting is a collaboration of INTO SCHOOL (Finland), Teosto (Finland), University of Arts Helsinki (Finland), Pompeu Fabra University (Spain), University of Cologne (Germany), Sacem (France), Artisjus (Hungary), Musical Futures (UK).
