DSMusic – Remote Learning for All!Comments Off on DSMusic – Remote Learning for All!
Sometimes, the worst situations can bring out the best in people:
- supermarkets giving the elderly and disabled special times to shop,
- hotels offering free accommodation to healthcare workers,
- Italians singing and making music from their balconies in lock down,
- neighbours leaving notes in letter boxes offering help.
Here at DSMusic it has made me start creating those fully interactive resources I have been wanting to for ages!
For all of you amazing teachers out there trying to work out how to teach a fun, rigorous, sequential and developmental music literacy program online – I am here to help in any way I can!
