NYMAZ launches Remote Music Learning Network

The NYMAZ Remote Music Learning Network is a new initiative intended to support and connect professionals with an interest in online music education.  From music practitioners to policymakers, across the private, public and non profit sectors, we hope the network will embrace and explore practice and research relating to the teaching of music online, and the creation of new online musical experiences and CPD opportunities.

We’ve created a new group on the Youth Music Network - it’s for everyone involved or interested in using online technologies to improve access to music education. The group will provide a space for us all to share practice, news, views, problems and successes. Please join the group, and join in the discussion!

Membership of the network is free and open to all. Members receive invites to training and network events, plus access to online forums, CPD opportunities, live broadcasts and regular e-bulletins. To join the network, or to find out more, please email emily.penn@nymaz.org.uk.

Connect: Resound Webinar

We are delighted to present the first in a series of webinars exploring online music education.

The webinar will be led by Emma Calvert, an experienced music teacher and Assistant Head of the North Yorkshire Music Service. Emma was a lead tutor in the 2015 Connect: Resound pilot project, delivering online instrumental lessons to pupils across the county.

In this webinar, you will have the opportunity to explore the potential of online technology for music education, and gain hints and tips to make your online lessons as fun and effective as possible.

The webinar is intended for teachers in both the public and private sectors who are already, or are interested in, teaching musical instruments online, including teachers from the Music Education Hubs participating in Connect: Resound 2016.  It may also be of interest to managers of Music Hubs and other music education organisations with an interest in online learning.

Participation is free, but places are limited, so early booking is advised. Book here.


NYMAZ was also excited to host a #MuFuChat on twitter last week, asking the question “Does where you live affect your access to music education?” MuFuChats, organised by Musical Futures, are a weekly opportunity to join a discussion with other music educators around a specific topic. Our #mufuchat was a lively debate, which will be available to view again in the coming days, at https://storify.com/musicalfutures.
