On Wednesday, March 18, The NAMM Foundation will host a free, online workshop called “Bridging the Gap: Teaching and Learning Music Online.” The webinar will begin at 9 AM PDT/ 12 PM EDT.

Teachers can register here.

“All of us at The NAMM Foundation express our concern and support for everyone that is experiencing the realities of the current global health crisis,” says Mary Luehrsen, executive director of the NAMM Foundation. “We hope that you and your families are doing well and taking all the required precautions to be well! As the restrictions of this time unfold, we share in the disappointments over the cancellations or postponements of festivals, concerts, student honors ensembles and performances and so many other music-making gatherings.  The power of music is amplified through the events we share – be it as performers, learners or audience members.”

According to Luehrsen, this webinar will help explain how to be more comfortable teaching online, where to go for support from experts and music educators, how to create or adjust your lesson plans for an online learning environment, and where you can look for free and intuitive resources as both teacher and learner.
