Calling all performers, live music venues and volunteers! Make Music Day UK is coming on Wed 21 June.
Make Music Day is an international celebration which first started in France in 1982 and now takes place in over 120 countries and 750 cities across the world. Make Music Day UK aims to turn the country into a stage, and offer a full spectrum of performers the opportunity to display their musical skills.
Music education in rural areas in jeopardy….BUT decent broadband is the answer
• Virtual music tuition can fill the gap for remote schools but relies on superfast broadband
• New report supports findings of “The State of Rural Services 2016”, published earlier this year by Rural England
In a new report launched today, youth music development charity NYMAZ spells out how digital technology could revolutionise the way schools provide music tuition. But it warns that poor broadband in rural areas is limiting young people’s access to equal life opportunities.
Frequalise, a ground breaking project kindly funded by Youth Music, was designed to enable deaf and hard of hearing young people explore the potential that technology offers in creating, performing and sharing music. We have collated our findings into a report which you can download for free here, and we hope to put this expertise and experience gained through the project into practice around the country.
