Combining online and in-person rehearsals

As we move back towards being able to run our rehearsals in person, it’s important to think about including all your members. Some of your members will be raring to get back to normality, and face-to-face rehearsals and concerts. Some, however, might still be self-isolating, or might be struggling with technology, and these challenges could result in them feeling left out and excluded from your group.

Welcoming beginners and less experienced musicians into your group

Many of our member groups are ‘mixed ability’, which means that people of any standard can join in – from complete beginners to advanced musicians. The challenge for these groups is how they keep things interesting enough for more advanced players, but at the same time don’t leave beginners feeling all at sea.
