Online member meetup (youth groups)

This event is for youth member groups; that is groups which are only for young people or groups which have a youth group which is separate from the main group.

We know that our youth member groups up and down the UK are feeling the impact of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic on their activities. With uncertainty around how to get through these difficult times, we think it’s more important than ever for us to help youth music groups to get in touch with each other and share learning, ideas and to support one other.

Planning for the future: Finance

As lockdown starts to be lifted, groups are thinking about whether they will be able to resume rehearsals in the coming months. Each group will be in a different position and must assess the risks and take decisions based on its own situation, location and membership.

Now is the time to research your options, talk to your members, meet as a committee and make a plan for the next three to six months or year ahead.

COVID-19: keeping your group running

The cancellation of events and regular music activities for our members is causing extra work, new worries and some uncharted waters to navigate. Our Coronavirus blog gives an overview of the things to consider in the light of COVID-19, and this page provides more detail on how to handle cancelled activities and keep your group moving in these unprecedented times.

Zoom: how it works

What is Zoom?

Zoom is an online platform that allows you to have a meeting virtually, everyone is in their own homes and can hear and see each other.

Do I need the internet to use it?

Zoom is most commonly used on a device connected to the internet. But you can also dial in using a normal phone line, in this case the person can hear and be heard but cannot see or be seen.

Can I use it on any device connected to the internet?
