Connect: Resound Live is part of Connect: Resound, a pioneering project which promotes the way digital technologies can be used to create more music education and enrichment opportunities for children. We have been working with music teachers across the country since 2014, providing advice and guidance on how to adapt techniques to an online learning environment.
We are delighted to share this knowledge through a free series of CPD webinars – see dates below.
There’s also a host of free CPD resources for music teachers interested in online instrumental tuition at connectresound.org.uk/resources – including guides to safeguarding and teaching tips.
For the latest CPD invitations, please join our Remote Music Learning Network – membership is free of charge.
