COVID-19 has had a particularly significant impact on classical musicians. Suddenly, digital has become almost the only means for artists to perform.
But what are the specific media skills beyond musical excellence that music students need to thrive in our ever-increasing digital world and how can these skills be trained by Conservatoires?
After last year's successful first IMZ Academy Edition on this subject, this online IMZ Academy invites leading experts to explore how the music education of the future could integrate the media skills training into its syllabus to prepare students effectively for the challenges + opportunities presented by the digital world:
