Join Resonaari Inclusive Music Network
The Resonaari Inclusice Music Network (i.e. Resonaari Network) maintained by Music Centre Resonaari is a free service aimed at professionals, and it is created to bring together people who value equality in learning and accessibility of music making.
In addition to individual professionals, the Resonaari Network welcomes universities, schools and other academic institutions, as well as workshops, care homes and units of assisted living to join the network.
Resonaari Inclusive Music Network offers you:
- information about current events, courses and materials
- access to the material library, where you can find instructional videos and other useful material
- an informative newsletter a few times each year
- the opportunity to connect with other professionals
In the hub of the Resonaari Network are learners, who have some special trait or quality in their way of learning, and who need individually designed solutions to aid them in learning and music making. Our goal is to provide everyone with the opportunity to join music making, and to find ways to enable everyone to play!
Now sharing educational videos with members!
Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, all Resonaari Music School teaching is currently carried out as distance teaching. Out teachers have created dozens of videos to support the students practicing at home. We offer links to some of these videos to members of the international Resonaari Network, free of charge.
You can share the video links with your clients/students according to your judgement. Please stress to everyone the importance of not sharing the links with anyone else or posting them on social media. The links are intended only to be used by members of the Resonaari Network in support of their work.
You will get access to the video links as soon as you have joined the network. We will be providing more links and information in an e-mail newsletter during spring 2020.
