Thoughts for Educators
New School tech meets the New School
As an educator myself I understand the challenges of online learning - especially for a performing group. An Online Ensemble can help overcome some of those challenges:
Keeping students engaged: Sharing in a common goal provides motivation for each student to provide their best recording for the project.
Providing instructors with deliverables: Since each student must submit their own performance individually instructors will have another option for evaluating each student.
Exposing students to additional skills: This project provides an experience that exposes students to technical skills that are becoming more and more important in the music industry.
