Let the music Play On: ABRSM reaches out to musicians in lockdown

5 days ago

ABRSM is reaching out to inspire musical achievement and help music makers, parents and teachers Play On as nations around the world enter further lockdowns.

ABRSM’s popular Play On web platform will be offering more top tips, competitions, regular updates and Musical Moments, an exciting new weekly session with an inspirational musician at 4pm every Thursday.

Play On has already attracted more than 300,000 views from 92 different countries since launching in the wake of Covid-19 last year.

As musicians across the UK and the wider world face new restrictions, it will be helping them learn from experts, share their music making, improve their playing and make the most of fantastic free resources.

As well as the new Musical Moments feature, there will be tips from Gabriel Lee for teachers on setting home studios for online music lessons, home schooling support with ABRSM’s Classical 100 collection of carefully selected pieces of music and activities, interviews with top conductors, features with family fun and learning and help to get younger learners to practise.

Executive director Lincoln Abbotts said: “Play On was created to support musical journeys in extraordinary times and that’s exactly what we’ll be doing over the coming weeks.

“We’ll be finding new and exciting ways of inspiring musical achievement and helping teachers, musicians and mums and dads make the most of the great free resources that we already have. Our message to musicians is simple: ‘Play On – we’ll be there with you’.”

Play On last year hosted ABRSM’s three Global High Scorers concerts, a virtual ensemble of 700 musicians from more than 20 countries as part of last year’s Making Music Day and gave away 150 pieces of music through its Free Piece of the Day feature.
