Lockdown unlocking change in music education practice

Beale, R (2020) Lockdown unlocking change in music education practice. In: Annual EdD Conference: Sculpting Change, 20 June 2020, University of Cambridge, UK [online].


When Covid-19 lockdown struck in UK music education practice unlocked a ‘new’ normal. My experience in changing delivery of home to online instrumental lessons evidences changes in autonomy and responsibility. Delivering music lessons to people on a one-to-one basis through online platforms, teaching students in their homes, enables development through a combination of education practice and individual practise. Examining what change looks like now and asking what can be learnt from and through these changes, it is possible to question how this new knowledge might enlighten future forms of music education. Unlocking after lockdown means that education will be delivered in a setting where school once again becomes a second home to children and teachers. When re-learning the art of listening is vital in all settings, lessons learnt from instrumental education delivered online at home might help sculpt change to the value placed on music education.
