Playing On Again
with ABRSM Executive director Lincoln Abbotts
The emergence of COVID-19 last year reminded us all of the incredible power of music to help us through extraordinary times.
As schools closed and face-to-face exams were cancelled, ABRSM was proud to step forward to help musicians around the world Play On through the ideas, resources and encouragement offered on these pages.
We know you appreciated it too. There were incredible 300,000 visits to the platform and it hosted some fantastic musical moments like our Making Music Day ensemble performance featuring 700 players from around the world.
If you aren’t already a regular visitor we hope you will make Play On an online home during the continuing challenges of these times. Whether you’re a teacher, parent or musician it is here to help you learn, teach and share music.
There’s loads of fantastic stuff – ideas, tips, resources and fun – already on the site and we’ll be adding even more over the coming weeks so, join us, keeping checking for updates, join in our fantastic new weekly Musical Moments at 4pm every Thursday, and, above all, Play On!
