PRESTO: A Pan-European Erasmus+ Project
Sing Ireland is delighted to have been a part of an Erasmus+ project since 2021, entitled ‘PRESTO: Practices and Resources for Equipping Schools to Teach Music Online’. The consortium developed 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 has worked 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 has developed multimedia resources for remote music teaching in the areas of classroom-based music, instrumental music, and choral music.
The Sing Ireland Resources are available below and through the Presto Website.
