In times of difficulty music can do a great deal to bring us all enjoyment, relaxation and a great sense of community. You only have to look at the world over the past month to see some wonderful examples of how music is bringing people together, even at a time where social distancing is becoming a way of life for a while. The Italians took to their balconies, musicians are offering live gigs from their home #togetherathome. Gareth Malone is putting together a social distancing choir #homemalone and there are thousands of other initiatives around #socialdistance-sing.
Music is a really great way of stress busting and keeping our spirits up, so I want to continue to support you at home where I can. I have put some resources in this section that can be used at home to keep music in our lives at this time. I will be adding to this over time in order to give you a good bank of resources to use at home should you wish.
Please do send me videos of your children playing music or singing to firstname.lastname@example.org I would love to see what you are getting up to. And please do email if you have any questions or if I can do anything to help with your musical activities at home.
Stay well, stay positive and keep making music!
