2020 Learning and Teacher Support Forum

Let’s come together one last time for the year in this final 2020 Learning and Teacher Support Forum. This online gathering is an opportunity for all of our teaching and Musica Viva In Schools community to come together and share and support one another in best practice for learning and teaching in music. 2020 has been a challenging year but one that has forced us, as teachers and learners, to innovate, to move beyond previous limitations, and to find creative solutions.

In this forum we would love to:

- discuss the challenges and triumphs you’ve experienced teaching music during this disrupted time
- celebrate stories of student experiences and the impact on student learning and engagement
- share effective music teaching and learning practices in the blended learning environment
- introduce you to one of our MVIS musicians to hear about their experience adapting to an online environment and the ways they have connected with their student and teacher audiences
- share our exciting new 2021 MVIS program

Musica Viva’s education team look forward to celebrating with you in the way we know best – with music and community!
