Ethno England is looking for new musicians to engage in the global Ethno project and become trained artistic leaders to work on our projects.

"Ethnofonik" is a comprehensive, interactive training course aimed at providing the musical leaders with the tools to facilitate the exchange of culture to different audiences through music.

The Ethnofonik course will provide the participants, with musical and social training, enabling
them to become effective coaches on music exchange projects, in various contexts from
international exchanges to local musical workshops. It is based on the example of the 'artistic
leader' role at Ethno, a program of Jeunesses Musicales International.

Through a combination of participative workshops, group discussions, and performances,
adopting an interactive approach throughout and a constant reflection and evaluation, the
participants will work on:
• Reflecting on and sharing previous artistic coaching experiences together with
experimenting specific type of pedagogical approaches offered by the international
trainers team;
• Understanding the relevance of this type of coaching to encourage active participation
of young musicians, to foster their own meeting and the meeting with local
• Identifying and improving specific knowledge, skills and attitudes needed in artistic
coaching and for involving local communities in international projects;
• Putting tools, methods, techniques and materials into practice in real workshop

The results presented during the training to the French audience will be some open
rehearsals for school classes, a series of music workshops on traditional music for young
French musicians (designed and run by the Ethnofonik participants), small concerts in
neighboring organizations and two public concerts by a band formed of all the Ethnofonik
participants, performing original arrangements of traditional tunes from the participants
