As part of our Secondary Virtual School Experience, music lessons have focused on creativity, with students composing their own music. Many students have also been playing their instruments; it’s a great way to get some time off screen - I’ve even dug out music and technical studies that haven’t seen the light of day since my student days to re-engage in practical music making.
Take the time to sit and really listen. Take music from the background and bring it to the foreground. Put your phone down, turn up the volume and let yourself be immersed in the healing power of music. Dance around your living room to old favourites and take the time to discover new masterpieces. When all around us is changing, the music will keep on playing.
