NYMAZ leads the project in partnership with technology company UCan Play. Together we work with Music Education Hub partners, schools, music leaders, professional musicians and music organisations to help develop better and broader access to music education for all, with live online experiences at the core.
We are delighted to have secured funding from the Paul Hamlyn Foundation Education and Learning Through the Arts: More and Better Fund, as well as Music for All, to further develop this work and embed it in the planning and practice of Music Education Hubs across the country.
Our tried-and-tested model of real-time, virtual lessons uses video-streaming technologies and online communication tools, such as Skype in school settings alongside the Roland audio-visual streamer/mixer which offers multiple camera angles, to enable greater interaction and quality of experience for both young people and music leaders.
We have published two research reports which outline the impacts and benefits of integrating online learning into Music Education Hubs’ programmes of work:
