How do we ensure that musicians are ethical, responsive and reflective practitioners of Community Music; is formal training required and if so, in what form?
Jess Abrams, Edinburgh, Scotland
We often speak of Community Music as something musicians go out and ‚do‘. But how and when are musicians trained to do this work? How does a musician know that he or she has the disposition for this work and what disposition should one have anyway? Community Music is a broad term. It covers a huge range from mainstream work with groups of school children to work with elderly people with dementia and everything in between. How then can we be sure that musicians have the skills to work across this spectrum and more to the point what are those skills and how can musicians attain them? As a Music Practitioner and Educator teaching in Further Education, it’s clear to me that there is real value in undertaking training in Community Music early in ones career. This presentation will ask as many questions as it answers about whether Community Musicians should be ‘trained’ and if so in what way. How do we ensure that musicians can also be ethical reflective practitioners of Community Music who know their strengths and their limitations? Do we learn on the job? Is that fair on participants? We will explore our own ‘training’ and the forms it’s taken as well as use some case studies in how we would approach and work within our strengths and limitations.
