The Sound of Music IV. Iceland

European Training course for youth workers to explore the power of music in non formal education activities with young people, with different aims (to relax, to activate, to cooperate, to reflect, to promote learning, etc)

While doing activities with young people, it is very common to use music in a bigger or smaller scale, and in a more conscious or unconscious way.

25 April – 1 May 2018 | Laugarvatn, Iceland , Iceland

Application deadline: 15 February 2018


The music can influence the atmosphere that is created in a group, it can transmit emotions and/or words, it can be a fundamental part of one activity or even affect in a negative way when we are not using the right music for the situation.

The conscious use of music, the awareness of its impact on emotions, the right choice for the different moments, the options about public use (copyright, creative commons licenses), the digital tools to work with music, etc… are different aspects not always known and successfully used by trainers, youth leaders and/or workers in the field of youth.

Therefore, the purpose of this training is to develop the participants’ competences in the use of music as a powerful tool in non-formal education activities with young people.
