The Music studies presented here are parts of our Erasmus+ Project e-ARTinED, where we are building:
A web based course for teachers on how to use Art in Education, considering Social Inclusion as well as Critical Thinking and with a special focus on Art in Nature.
Pre-school class teacher, Anki, has received the most modern education, completely in tune with the new curriculum. In the academic year 2016-17 Sofie took a similar training course in Music & Drama, also at the Royal College of Music in Stockholm. Moreover Elisabeth accompanies (Yule Music below) and leads music!
Each week, teachers from the Music School teaches students in instrumental Music. In spring 2013, we attended a film-music project (a part of the national Creative School Project), where the children composed and painted in teacher Leah management (her husband and painter Bjorn Skeppstedt took part as well).
The following year preschool class and years 1-4 studied the Swedish author Astrid Lindgren. A show with a selection of her songs was presented to the parents.
We have also made musicals about Space, Recycling and Folklore. The music is usually there when we play theater. A another example is the project Christmas Traditions all over the World/Yule Traditions. Here you can find some of our experiences in teaching Curricular Subjects through the Arts:
