ONLINE CLASSES.  AUTUMN TERM 2020

During the Summer Term 2020 and the summer holiday period, EYM ran a variety of trial classes using a mixture of pre-recorded videos and live online classes.  Instrumental pupils were offered one-to-one online lessons.  

During the Autumn Term 2020 we will continue to offer classes delivered in these ways, until we are able to return to St. Thomas of Aquin's High School.

Musical Play, Musical Workshop, Musical Foundations & Musicianship classes will be delivered via 30 minute online Zoom classes & short pre-recorded videos, the two methods alternating week by week.

All instrumental pupils are being offered short one-to-one online lessons at various times throughout the week.

We hope to organise projects for choir, string orchestras & chamber music groups, each project involving a block of Saturdays using Zoom, pre-recorded videos and video montage.

We hope also that children and parents will find ways of enjoying music within their families.  Group music-making is a wonderful thing, particularly in difficult times.  This is a time to focus on what music is really meant for - to make us feel better. 

Some families may be interested in various online musical activities being organised by The Benedetti Foundation.  These sessions are designed to complement individual lessons, but not to replace individual lessons.  www.benedettifoundation.org/mini-sessions and www.benedettifoundation.org/ chamber-music-sessions
