For arts educators, remote teaching brought on by the Covid-19 pandemic is incredibly challenging.
Live ensemble performance cannot be accomplished alone, no matter how fast your video conference software runs.
Rehearsing a band remotely is hard.
Here’s how to make it a little easier.
When radio started, actors recited theater shows. When tv started, they broadcast footage of radio dramas.
Anytime a new medium emerges, it starts by copying its predecessor.
And so do virtual band videos… for now.
Ask any band or chorus director. Operating a performing arts ensemble remotely is not the same as doing so in-person.
But some directors try to make it that way. They seem to be looking for virtual versions of their favorite in-person methods.
That’s the wrong answer.
Carolina Crown’s student members raised $35,287 in 31 days — online, via crowdfunding, during a pandemic.
The corps’ staff made the members’ participation into a game, and it drove massive success with very little effort.
Arts program costs didn’t go on quarantine.
Fundraisers and events are going to look very different during the upcoming months.
Here’s how you can kickstart your school’s fundraising in the wake of Covid-19.
We all know times are tough right now.
And of course that includes schools and arts programs, many of whom are unsure what next year will bring.
- Many schools face budget cuts in the wake of economic downturn.
- Arts programs are scrambling to replace lost revenue.
- Reliable fundraisers—like bake sales & car washes—are cancelled.
It’s a difficult time to be planning a marching band season or show choir set. But we can help.
Funding the arts is what we do. For years, we’ve been helping ensembles buy gear and enhance their programs.
This is our “why.” — We want to help.
