Music Education hubs are groups of organisations – such as local authorities, schools, other hubs, arts organisations, community or voluntary organisations – working together to create joined-up music education provision, and to respond to local need.
Connect: Resound works with Music Education Hubs across the country to support them in incorporating online technology in their music education work. This may be through teaching individuals and groups over the internet, developing live broadcasts for schools audiences, or providing CPD and technical advice and support for online music education.
Collectively, we are building up a body of knowledge and practice which is helping to inform how music education can become more accessible, provide more opportunities to engage in high quality music education and enrichment activities, and continue to innovate and improve efficiency, using online technology.
As part of the current action research programme, we are working closely with 5 Connect: Resound Music Education Hub partners to develop new approaches to delivering better access to music education opportunities in rural areas, using online technology . The programme includes CPD for teachers, online instrumental teaching and live broadcasts of specially commissioned performances for schools. The results of this action research, exploring both the pedagogical and business aspects of incorporating online learning into a Music Hub’s core delivery, will be published in autumn 2016.
