As the world faces a difficult time, the most we can do is maintain hope, educate ourselves with the scientific facts, observe protection protocols, and prepare accordingly. Despite the challenges being faced, we take comfort in the good that prevails around us and acknowledge & appreciate the change makers behind it all.
School districts around the country are offering free breakfast & lunches to children during school shutdowns, educators are teaming together to make online teaching possible, Keep Music Alive is partnering with 850 music organizations across the country to offer free music lessons in celebration of their Teach Music Week – find a participating location near you at teachmusic.org and contact them to register & schedule at a later date.
We’re dedicated to helping our community in meaningful ways that stretch beyond financial assistance & product donations, so we’ve compiled a list of online resources for music educators to utilize for remote learning. These platforms are free or are currently offering their services at no cost for the duration of school closures.
