Connect: Resound is an action research project exploring how digital technologies can be used to deliver music education and enrichment activities to children living in rurally isolated areas.

The Connect:Resound project will test the ability of video-streaming technologies to provide long-distance/remote music education for children. Working with seven primary schools in North Yorkshire, the project will look to overcome the significant challenges of servicing provision due to rural isolation.

Access to music education opportunities, which requires specialist tuition and associated significant travelling time and costs, are limited and the project will test virtual access to instrument tuition, live performance and staff training.
