A World of Music Education at Your Fingertips
Posted on 30th November 2020 at 15:00
This year, organisations from around the world have been sharing music and arts education resources online. This connects them with people who would normally be able to attend performances and workshops, and it creates a whole new way to learn.
The upside of this is that a whole range of creative activities from top arts bodies is now readily available, wherever you are in the world.
You can head off for some lessons at Carnegie Hall, join in with activities at the Royal Opera house and learn to draw with professional artists.
It’s a welcome, seasonal reminder that we are all connected through our love of music, and it’s an exciting time for enquiring minds.
We’d like to share our MWC top picks for schools and parents, from the UK and beyond:
The BBC offer multiple levels of activities through their website.
For Early Years there is Sonic Explorers where you can study sounds from different places.
