Hver vill vera meistari ? : Music creation project with disabled children

Published
June 2012
Abstracts
  • This master study is a project which consisted in music creation sessions in the after-school center Garður for disabled children aged 12 to 13. The sessions took place once a week for a period of three months (ten sessions in total). The children worked mostly on song writing, using instruments made from recycled material. The creation process was built on pictures, fairy-tales, movements, as well as their own experience and feelings. The project was developed in the spirit of constructivism and empowerment.
    The work with the children was very positive. The songs created are interesting, both because of their musical quality and their expressive content. It would have been possible to improve the quality of the teaching by bringing more practical material and by having a closed group. The work with the after-school center was more difficult, because of lack of motivation from some employees, lack of assertiveness from the project manager and lack of communication on both sides. Involving the parents in the project from the beginning would also have given it better visibility and communication.

    Þetta meistaraverkefni samanstendur af tónsköpunartímum sem voru framkvæmdir í Frístundaheimilinu Garði fyrir fötluð börn á aldrinum 12 til 13 ára. Tímarnir fóru fram einu sinni í viku yfir þriggja mánaða tímabil, alls tíu tímar. Börnin unnu mest með lagasmíð og notuðu þar hljóðfæri sem voru unnin úr endurvinnanlegu efni. Sköpunarferlið var byggt upp á myndum, ævintýrum, og hreyfingu, sem og á þeirra eigin reynslu og upplifun. Verkefnið var byggt upp í anda hugsmíðahyggju og valdeflingu.
    Vinnan með börnunum var afskaplega jákvæð. Lögin sem voru samin voru áhugaverð, þá bæði vegna tónlistargæða og sköpunargleði. Það hefði verið mögulegt að auka gæði kennslu með því að koma með meira úrval af efni og með því að hafa lokaðan hóp. Framkvæmd verkefnis í Frístundaheimilinu var erfiðari sökum skorts á virkri þátttöku starfsfólks, skorts á ákveðni verkefnisstjóra og skorts á samskiptum milli aðila. Að virkja foreldra í verkefnið frá byrjun hefði jafnframt tryggt betri sýnileika og samskipti.
