It’s thinking time in MUS654!
We should be working on Session 7, but you know what? People needed a bit of stepping back and thinking, so I added a page and we have delayed that session for a week.

In this class, MUS654, through these pages, the goal (if you do them all, and especially if you are one of my face-to-face students at uni) is to build a curriculum for a learner. but…
I haven’t yet talked about what a curriculum is.
What does it look like?
What can it be?
So I’ve added a page about curriculum.
Don’t worry – I am not going to tell anyone exactly what or how to do things, but with this page, I encourage you to read, think, and discuss.
Here’s the new page:
Thinking time: What is a curriculum anyway?
If you missed our hangout last week, we spoke with our special guest Jonathan Rees, tuba performer and teacher form London, and we were also joined by Rob Murray from Music Academy for Schools. You can catch up here:
There is NO hangout this week (sorry!), but we will start up with hangouts again on Nov. 4 at 6pm GMT.
If anyone would like to join us, please get in touch!
We’ll pick up with Session 7 next week, where we start to explore planning a rationale and relating some of these concepts about curriculum to music.
In the meantime, happy reading!
