Online Music Sessions
COVID-19 has presented it's challenges, but it's important to recognise the positive things that have arisen from this pandemic. Online music sessions have taken place in a variety of organisations. We have moved sessions online and adapted them to suit the varying needs and requirements of our students.
Social media and online video conferencing platforms have given music institutions the ability to provide music sessions in the comfort and safety of our own homes. From online choir rehearsals to sensory music sessions; people have been able to remain creative and musical through lockdown.
