Abstract - This article considers a Service Learning (SL) proposal which brings together the Music Education Program of the Faculty of Education in Segovia with the educational reality of different local schools through a schoolyards dynamisation project based on popular music games. Working from this experience, the main objectives of the study are: to evaluate if it contributes to the improvement of the university studentsí teaching competences; to determine if it could be considered a good educational practice; and to consider whether the project increase the integration and inclusion of children during the schoolyards. The method was based on a qualitative research where three questionnaires related to teaching competences self-perception were completed before and after the development of the project. The outcomes show a positive change in the self-perception related to transverse, specific and fundamental teaching competences of the university students, as well as a significant improvement on the scope and impact of the project comparing to the previous academic year (when the project was also developed), so the experience may be considered a good educational practice.
