The two-year project called ‘PRESTO: Practices and Resources for Equipping Schools to Teach Music Online’ started last week. The consortium will develop multimedia resources and best-practice guidance for remote music teaching in the school sector in the areas of classroom-based music, instrumental music, and choral music.
Together with project leaders the Liszt Academy, Budapest and with choral, university and entrepreneur partners from Finland (Caprice Oy, the owner of Minifiddlers who offers the Colourstrings courses), from Scotland (the National Youth Choir of Scotland), and from Ireland (Sing Ireland and the School of Theology, Philosophy, and Music of DCU), this wonderful team will work to provide innovative solutions for building resilience and flexibility into a sector whose activities have been gravely impacted by the coronavirus pandemic under the Erasmus+ KA226 Digital Education Readiness strand. The project will develop multimedia resources for remote music teaching in the areas of classroom-based music, instrumental music, and choral music.
We will keep you posted on the interim results and the outcomes.
