A 5-strong project consortium led by the Kodály Institute of the Liszt Academy has been awarded a significant funding of ~270.000€ through the Erasmus+ ‘Strategic Partnerships Call in Response to Covid-19’.
The two-year long project called ‘PRESTO: Practices and Resources for Equipping Schools to Teach Music Online’ started on the last week of April, 2021. The consortium will develop multimedia resources and best-practice guidance for remote music teaching in the school sector in the areas of classroom-based music, instrumental music, and choral music.
Together with choral, university and entrepreneur partners from Finland (Caprice Oy, the owner of Minifiddlers who offers the Colourstrings courses), from Scotland (NYCoS, the National Youth Choir of Scotland), and from Ireland (Sing Ireland, the leading choir association of Ireland and the School of Theology, Philosophy, and Music of DCU), this wonderful team will work to provide innovative solutions for building resilience and flexibility into a sector whose activities have been gravely impacted by the coronavirus pandemic.
