1. PRECEDENTS
In the new European Space for Higher Education, students are the cornerstone of the teaching-learning process and, therefore, Universities must make it a priority to provide students with all that they need to acquire a complete and high quality education.
Both through the current degree course in Education (Speciality: Music Education) and the degree course in Primary Education (in which Music Education will receive special education), it is of fundamental importance that students do not only acquire the specific educational contents related to their degree but also the professional competences that they will need to work as music teachers in Primary Education.
Nevertheless, the current training offered is not sufficient shows a certain lack of connection to the real needs and demands in this field and this problem needs to be addressed.

2. DESCRIPTION OF THE PROJECT. OBJECTIVES
With the innovation project we are presenting here, we have sought to examine the theoretical and practical training received by students taking a degree in Education (Speciality: Music Education), and compare them with the real challenges facing Music Teachers in the Primary classroom, through a series of workshops to create teaching programmes (and their corresponding teaching units).
The specific objectives of our project were:
1.To analyze the practical training contents of the degree (both of a general and a specific nature) and their connection to the real needs and demands of Music teachers in the Primary classroom.
2. To set up a practical workshop to create teaching programmes that students can use either in real-life situations or in classroom simulations.
3.To record a DVD to show the participation of the students of the aforementioned workshop; this audiovisual resource may be used either by the students themselves or by future students as a complement to the training received in the different subjects in the degree programme.

3. METHODOLOGY
-Once the project was approved, we gave a public presentation of it to the students on the degree in order to offer the possibility of participation to all those interested.
-The organization of the workshop sessions depended on the number of students who participated as well as the availability and the timetable of the teachers who participated.
-Negotiation of access to a state Primary school where we could put into practice a selection of teaching activities devised in the workshops.
-We recorded on DVD all of the workshop sessions and the practical classes given in the Primary School in order to finally select form these record those which we considered to the most relevant and useful as a didactic resource.
-We watched the DVD with the students who participated in order to assess the results of the workshop.

4. POSSIBLE RESULTS
We believe that offering students the possibility of facing real-life teaching and learning situations that require the application the theoretical-practical contents they have worked on in the different subjects in the degree programme is not only interesting but also necessary in order to optimize the benefits obtained from their teaching practice period in the third year and to optimize the quality of their future work as Music teachers.
