The Intertwining of Educational Disruption and Music Disruption

Last Spring, music education around the world suddenly went remote — or was severely disrupted at the very least. Many schools and educators pivoted and transformed how they taught music. Community education organizations already had pivoted in some cases and became global instead of just serving their local communities. Performers became online educators around the world, opening new doors and relationships. Will this continue in 2021? Will this five-years-of-change-in-one stick or transform expectations and global connections?

About the Podcast

Amplify Music Communities
Local Music - Emerging from the Pandemic Globally
Music is changing locally around the world. Enjoy our Community Conversations with music leaders in cities, regions, and countries throughout 2021. And please get inspired from the panel sessions from the Amplify Music 2021 conference that we will roll out over the next few months. What is Amplify Music? Amplify Music began as a quick virtual conference in April 2021 to capture stories and challenges of local music early in the pandemic. We gathered 39 sessions of conversations across 25 hours in April. In April 2021, we gathered conversations back together for AM21. Please enjoy past recordings and the future Amplify Music Communities episodes.
