Over the past 6 years music videoconferencing and livestreaming have been a key initiative for the School of Music, now considered a world leader in the implementation of this technology. The program can facilitate one-on-one lessons, masterclasses, and a variety of music educational opportunities tailored to suit individual and school needs. Additionally, special presentations and workshops are offered for interactive audiences throughout the year, aligning with international festivals, visiting artists and concerts.
The School of Music is equipped with mobile videoconference units for studio teaching, and a videoconference-equipped performance space for large audiences, lectures, ensemble and orchestral workshops. We have recently completed the new state-of-the-art videoconference studio and updated one of our lecture theatres with complimentary technology, placing the school at the cutting edge of music videoconference and distance-learning research.
Some of the past associations include institutions such as the Manhattan School of Music in New York, National Institute of Dramatic Art (NIDA) and artists such as Carlo Barone, (Director, Accademia l’Ottocento, Italy) - Elizabeth Wallfisch, (London, UK) - Dr Jonathan Dunsby, (Professor of Music Theory, Eastman School of Music USA), International MiniFiddlers (Helsinki - Finland).
This innovative technology is ever evolving and constantly opening new pathways and learning outcomes for our students.
