Representatives from ABRSM (Associated Board of Royal Schools of Music) and Trinity College London are among those gathering online for the Southeast Asia Music Academy conference, Teaching Music Goes On(line) later this month.
The event gathers music educators from across the region and beyond to discuss and workshop innovations in music education. Aimed specifically at music educators, a range of topics are up for discussion with breakout groups for specific instrument tuition and general education. Networking sessions will replace the usual social interaction at the conference.
The Southeast Asia Music Academy Online is a new development aiming to provide music educators and institutions in the region with the tools and training to embrace the new on-screen environment and to give the best remote education possible.
The conference takes place on the 16 and 17 November in the GMT+8 time zone and includes talks and seminars from the likes of Donald Maurice of the Victoria University of Wellington, New Zealand, Julie Tan of the Singapore Music Teachers’ Association and Ryan Lewis, the South and East Asia Regional Consultant of ABRSM.
The closing session, ‘Beyond Grade 8, and Online Assessments Explained’ presented by Trinity College London’s Regional Academic Consultant, U-Jin Lim, will be broadcast free of charge on the SEA Music Academy Online Facebook page, though only paying delegates will be able to interact and ask questions.
