Our Friends of TiME
Incorporated Society of Musicians (ISM),
Music Teachers Association and Music Mark
have launched the
#CanDoMusic is a UK-wide campaign that aims to ensure all children and young people can resume their musical learning this autumn.
It offers practical teaching resources, guidance on how to adapt to the ‘new normal’, advice on online teaching (should further localised lockdowns happen), and information to help individuals and organisations advocate for music in schools.
Its mission is to celebrate and unlock the innovation of music teachers and senior leaders, ensuring that music plays a central role in rebuilding their school communities.
We are delighted to join our Friends in Creative United in supporting the TAKE IT AWAY CONSORTIUM and the Guide to buying Adaptive Musical Instruments (Download here)
Your Music Technology Classroom
We all know that the only constant right now is change (Heraclitus). For Music Technology teachers and all practical creatives there are additional challenges. Cleaning Equipment, hygiene and spacing students.
It is vital that we all share and support each other with solutions. At TiME we will get the ball rolling and invite you to share more either on our Facebook pages or in the special TiMEShare forum on the TiME website.
To keep updated you might like to become a Member of TiME.
So here are some thoughts.
Spitfire Audio are giving free versions of BBC Symphony Orchestra Discover plugins for students and teachers.
Also their Composer magazine is a great resource.
Steinberg have released their new Cubasis software for Android devices.
An excellent book called ‘Getting Started with Dorico 3.5’ by Darren Jones and is launched today 17th June on Amazon (£13.95)
In this emergency we all need to be conscious of our own and others wellbeing. This includes taking care of our stress levels and building immunity. Positive Feelings boost immunity whilst Negative Feelings diminish immunity and that's the last thing we need right now.
