Along with the rest of the world, we are learning to adapt to our temporary new environment this spring. Although we are sad that we can’t collaborate with each other like we’re used to, our stay-at-home time is broadening our experience of what we can create individually, yet together.
Our string teachers are busy researching the best ways to connect with our students via FaceTime, Zoom, and other video platforms for private lessons. Although it isn’t optimal, it’s been nice to be able to “see” our students for their usual weekly lessons anyway, from our homes.
Orchestras and group classes are also using video and other online resources to meet and work on assignments to stay in shape. We have projects for our groups in the works that will be shared as we progress on them.
We also want to share “recitals” by our students. When students record their “recital,” we will keep updating this page with links (posted with parents’ permission).
