Participatory Creative Music Hub Sector Focus Resources: Creative Music in Education

This is a collection of videos profiling what creating music looks like in five different music programs across Canada. The teachers and students reflect on what role these creative practices might have in disrupting the colonial patterns still often central to institutional music education. Videos capture how they create with improv and warm-up exercises, creative notations and remaking repertoire. Examples include a unit for learning from an elder musician in the community and a new model for secondary education through popular music and sound production are offered.

Brainstream: Interacitve Film & Mental Health

Brainstream is an interactive animated film created by the National Film Board of Canada and Studio AATOAA. The viewer "massages" the thoughts of a teenage girl, supporting her during a difficult time. The accompanying lesson helps students develop skills in mental health advocacy, empathy, and arts appreciation.

Participatory Creative Music Hub

The Hub showcases people from all walks of life creating music together.  Whatever you call it — participatory creative music, community music, jamming, co-composition, improvisation, music exploration, listening games or having fun with sound — The Hub celebrates music creativity for everyone. Whether they are 4, 40 or 94 years of age, an experienced musician or making music for the first time — everyone has active input in the creative process.
