Connect: Resound is a pioneering digital music education project, led by youth music charity NYMAZ, to enable more children and young people to receive music-making and enrichment opportunities using online technologies.
Initially focused on using technology to overcome the barriers to music education presented by rural isolation - namely, travel times and cost- Connect: Resound is now exploring how its model of music education can respond to other challenges to children’s music-making. These range from mental health issues to excluded children.
Working with Music Education Hubs across the country since 2014, Connect: Resound has identified a ‘tried and tested’ model of online music tuition, which is high-quality but cost-effective. With funding from Paul Hamlyn Foundation Education and Learning Through the Arts: More and Better Fund, as well as Music for All, we are now exploring its potential in a variety of different applications, working with our latest cohort of Music Hub Partners
In addition, Connect: Resound broadcasts free live concerts online to schools through Connect: Resound Live, helping children and young people to enjoy professional performances, no matter their circumstance or location.
The Connect: Resound programme is also focused on supporting and connecting professionals with an interest in online music education – from resources to CPD training and events. To find out more, join the NYMAZ Remote Music Learning Networkmembership is free of charge.
