Reasons to check out what Music for All has to offer this spring:
Many of us are taxed from online learning. It is an unavoidable situation that has many educators reinventing music classes from the ground up. If you’re craving a taste of “normal” opportunities for your students, Music for All has spring semester educational experiences that can help.
Music for All is offering opportunities for schools to perform live from their home communities and share the amazing things your students are creating with the world. This past fall, participating ensembles in our Live Showcases valued the opportunity to perform this fall sharing scholastic performances from around the country through our online viewing platform. Each performance was broadcast in real time on video.musicforall.org so families and communities could see what their students were able to accomplish.
Why should I participate?
For many schools, COVID-19 safety guidelines prevent the gathering of an audience to see what great work your students are doing. Music for All’s Live Showcases provide a way to share your performance safely with audience members across the country.
Is it really “live?”
With the same equipment you use to conduct virtual classes, you can stream your performance to Music for All. Music for All can take a stream from your school via phone, tablet, or camera and broadcast it to an audience through video.musicforall.org. This is not a pre-recorded video take. This is live, in the moment.
What are the benefits of a live event?
We think it is important to provide an opportunity for students to get that pre-performance flutter, energy, and experience that only comes with live performance. Plus, you can share this opportunity with parents and community members so that they can enjoy what your students have worked so hard to achieve. Best yet, supporters can watch from their homes in a safe environment.
What if I’m not sure if my ensembles are prepared?
We know that everyone has different restrictions, rehearsal times, number of students, and opportunities. Music for All believes in the importance of sharing your successes – no matter what that looks like this year. This is important not only for your students, but for the community and world to see that music education is alive and students and teachers are working together to do amazing work.
What is the educational value of a live event?
Every ensemble has the opportunity to receive evaluator feedback on their performance opportunity. A panel of three renowned music educators will be selected to provide audio feedback about your group’s performance. They will be watching your performance live as it happens and recording real-time feedback that will be sent to you just a few minutes after your performance is complete.
How much does it cost?
Music for All Live Showcases are $100 for a 15-minute performance opportunity.
Adding performance evaluation brings the total cost to $275 for a 15-minute performance and feedback from three evaluators.
Tickets for spectators are $15 per household or device. Purchasing a “ticket” is the equivalent of purchasing one login, so you can watch solo or as a household.
