More Music From Home
Posted by More Music on 18 March 2020
Due to the recent announcement that we are suspending our programme until Monday 20 April, we would like to share some resources that will help you continue music making whilst our weekly sessions are postponed.
Although we are temporarily closing our doors, we will be active online and will be sharing different and creative ways of making music throughout this time – starting with the resources below. We know these are unusual and worrying times, but music and the arts remain essential to well-being. If you find yourself with extra time to spare, why not pick up an instrument or learn a new song!
