“I would very much recommend Connect: Resound as an avenue to access music lessons.” - Headteacher
Connect: Resound is a digital music education project, which uses new technology to deliver music education and enrichment activities to children living in rurally isolated areas.
Since 2014, NYMAZ has worked with Music Education Hubs, schools, music organisations and our technical partners UCan Play to develop new teaching and business models for delivering music education online.
Following a successful pilot project in North Yorkshire, Connect: Resound expanded to work with music organisations across the country to deliver and further develop this unique approach to online music education, alongside researchers from the University of Hull, who assessed the impact and potential of an online approach to music tuition.
The project has also engaged with music education professionals across the country through training and discussion events exploring the role that online technology can play in helping children and young people to engage with music, and has reached 1000s of viewers through our programme of live music broadcasts, delivered online to schools across the country.
Thanks to funding from the Paul Hamlyn Foundation, Connect: Resound is working in partnership with a cohort of Music Education Hubs across the country to develop their approach to delivering online music education as part of their programmes.
