The Academy provides a virtual platform for musicians, music teachers, and music students to upskill and expand their horizons, through a varied selection of music courses and classes delivered by award-winning educators. In collaboration with leading partners in the region, we strive to create an online music community in the region, connecting musicians and students of all genres. With lifelong learning as the Academy’s mission, our courses equip learners with valuable skills needed to thrive in an ever-evolving musical landscape — providing access to high-quality music education at affordable rates.
Who WE ARE
The Great Shutdown of 2020 isolated many of us at the start, but this proved to be but a prelude to new collaborations unfettered by physical borders. The team of the Academy brings together a think tank with experience ranging from music performance to entrepreneurship, with award-winning expertise in music education, and extensive experience in leadership and organisation.
WHAT WE DO
The word ‘Academy’ goes back almost 2,500 years, originally denoting the garden where Plato taught. The great philosopher once said, “Courage is knowing what not to fear”, and that includes this new arena of teachers, students and musicians connecting online. With upskilling as our mission, we bring our diverse backgrounds to provide opportunities for the music community in our region to take the next step forward towards 2021 being The Great New Adventure.
