This is a collection of videos profiling what creating music looks like in five different music programs across Canada. The videos demonstrate creative exercises, games, warm-ups, and ideas for lessons, units, and courses. The teachers and students also reflect on what role these creative practices might have in disrupting the colonial patterns still often central to institutional music education.
Here are some ways that five different teachers create with their students. We hope you find something you could try with your students and/or inspiration to dream up other possibilities
