Learning music

Video editing for virtual performances (online event)

Many leisure-time music groups have thought about creating a virtual performance for their members to take part in, but are unsure where to start or are unfamiliar with the software. In this event, we’ll take a look at the process of editing the video, and demonstrate Shotcut, one of the most popular and accessible pieces of software available.

Highnotes

In the autumn issue of Highnotes we discuss how to make sure that you include all your members whether you're going back to rehearsing in person or online (or both), how you can join the creative movement Fun Palaces from your home in October, a guide to livestreaming your performances and more.

Online member meetup (Northern Ireland)

As lockdown restrictions are gradually lifted across the UK, we know that music groups in Northern Ireland still have questions and concerns about the impact of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic on their activities. With guidance regularly changing and groups needing to consider new ways of working, we think it’s more important than ever for us to help our members get in touch with each other, to share learning and ideas and to support one other.

COVID-19: staying connected

We know how important music groups are to the people in them. It goes beyond the music, and is as much about social connections, wellbeing and shared creativity - all of which have been hit hard by coronavirus (COVID-19). However, a positive factor that has come out of this is the fantastically creative ways people are finding to stay in touch and keep making music.
