SMS Virtual Music World

Virtual Music World has been published in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic to allow music lessons and ensemble/group sessions to continue during the lockdown period.  As we develop this programme, we are keeping in mind that we will add Virtual Music World to our suite of offers beyond the COVID-19 period.

Virtual Music World is divided into two sections:

  • SMS Virtual Music World for Schools
  • SMS Virtual Music World for the Community

SMS Virtual Music World for Schools

In SMS Virtual Music World for Schools we will develop our services that we traditionally offer to schools through our online provision programme.

This will be achieved by the following means:

  • Pre-recorded videos that will be accessed through a password on this website.
  • Live streaming sessions.
  • Follow-up Zoom type meetings with class teachers, music coordinators or teaching assistant.
  • Live webinars.
  • Zoom type individual instrumental lessons.
