Platforms & Suggested Procedures for Online Music Instruction

The Ontario Music Educators' Association (OMEA) has shared a document compiled by some U.S.-based music teachers that could be of significant benefit to anyone transitioning to online music lessons amidst the COVID-19 crises.

In mid-March 2020, a group of Minnesota band directors tried all the major video conferencing platforms to determine the advantages and disadvantages of each. This document was developed by Bradley Mariska, with assistance from Scott Agster, Erin Holmes, and Heidi Stodola. In addition to looking into specific conferencing platforms, it also gives some general guidelines for online instruction.

Within the document is a link to additional online resources and distance learning ideas for band directors.
