Technology in Music Education UK (TiME), UK Music, Leicester-Shire Music Education Hub (LMEH) and the Incorporated Society of Musicians (ISM) have collaborated to produce three free-to-attend events to explore new ways of working with music technology.
Funded by Arts Council England, the three events aim to help musicians and music educators make the most of new digital media to reach wider audiences and enable more people to participate in music-making.
Each two-hour event will have its own theme:
- Event 1 (24 February) will discuss the ways in which music hubs are using music technology is and could be used to widen engagement and to inspire learners. It will be led by Brad Smith, Assistant Head of Service at LMEH
- Event 2 (3 March) will bring together representatives of UK Music, RSL (Rockschool London), ISM, Steinberg and PPL/PRS to explore new ways in which teachers, students and young people can connect with the music industry
- Event 3 (10 March) will explore advances in accessible music technology that are opening up opportunities for disabled and neuro-diverse musicians. The webinar, presented by Creative United, Drake Music, Skoog Music, Vochlea and Accessibility Ambassador Amy Dickens, will show ways in which new technology will free-up talents that have been blocked by inaccessibility
TiME is an alliance of music industry organisations, educators and practitioners to champion the value of music technology within education, the music industry and the creative economy.
Each event takes place between 16.00-18.00 GMT.
