MU3521, MU4020 and MU401C are three closely related courses that sit at the core of the Music and Communities Programme, and to the vocational experience the programme strives to provide. These courses bring together both the academic and practical aspects of designing, implementing and delivering a major community based project. MU3521 is based on Judith Sachs writing on innovative professional development, which supports the writing of a major project proposal. This proposal is then negotiated and delivered in full in MU401C.

This will allow them to understand and engage with theoretical work that will then be put into practice in peer-group contexts before making a significant contribution, including taking a lead role in some aspects, to work in real situations in communities. Workshops will allow students to try out ideas within peer-groups, undergoing peer-assessment activities as well as formal assessment themselves, as well as looking at how to evaluate their own practice.
The Community Placement will allow students to undertake activities with a variety of local agencies under the guidance of an expert. Agencies who have expressed an interest in becoming partners are Scottish Ensemble, Woodend Arts Association, Station House Media Unit, Peacock Visual Arts, Aberdeen College and various City and Shire council supported activities, as well as community activities managed by university staff away from the university. The placement aspect comprises a 8 week placement in a partner agency following an intensive workshop-experience in university.
