Notes

Abstract: Between March and June 2009 music students at the Federal University of Minas Gerais,
Brazil, will participate in a new programme exploring how participatory arts projects can be
led using highly student centred, creative approaches. Students will develop skills in leading
‘real time’ composition processes, moulding musical ideas created by participants into new
pieces and performances. The course, jointly designed and delivered by staff from Minas
Gerais and the Guildhall School of Music & Drama’s Connect programme, re-defines the
work of Connect for the Brazilian context. The course sees students developing their thinking
about student centred learning through a series of collaborative tasks that lead towards the
delivery of projects in favelasi around Belo Horizonte, Brazil. Research underpins the course,
exploring how students’ identities alter as they engage with the new approach. Research
methods include interviews, observations and recording of the sessions. The presentation will
describe the projects, discuss the data and explore the preliminary findings.
