Access to high quality training is one of the biggest challenges in the music industry we face today: talent knows no boundaries, but access to high quality training is often limited by geography and socio-economic conditions, and by historical bias in the selection process of students. In turn, this lack of access to the best kind of training, as well as lack of exposure to classical music stages, often prevents students in underrepresented communities from being inspired by classical music, and subsequently from pursuing music in college.
The last two years have been trying for all us, especially so for musicians and for music educators. However, despite all of the challenges, we have made an important discovery – when faced with limited means of access to in-person, high-quality training, technology can be used indeed, to bring the best teachers to the students through electronic means. Even more importantly, experience has shown that learning does happen even through the screen, combined with the student’s diligent work, and regular in-person reinforcement, progress can be made, and growth can take place.
