Online Music Centre
Introducing our Online Music Centre
While we cannot play or sing together in person, we at MMA are striving to keep music going through these difficult times. We therefore have set up our very own Online Music Centre which we run on Zoom for children aged
7 – 18yrs who play an instrument or love to sing.
Our Online Music Centre is made up of a variety of sessions which cater for all abilities. These sessions are led by Medway Licensed Music Teachers in a relaxed, inclusive and fun way.
Full descriptions of the individual sessions available can be found below. Please note, where grades are specified this is a suggested standard for that group. You do not need to have taken the exam.
Instrumental Ensemble Sessions – Looking at different musical genres with opportunities for listening, composing and performing.
Instrumental Ensemble : Group 1 - Beginners to Grade 1
Instrumental Ensemble : Group 2 - Grade 2 to Grade 4
Instrumental Ensemble : Group 3 - Grade 5 and above
Music Technology – This session will offer you the chance to work with an online Digital Audio Workstation (DAW). You will learn how to create music electronically and learn production techniques such as looping,
automation, sampling as well as creating music for specific purposes.
E.g. music for adverts, films etc.
You will need a laptop or desktop computer for this session. You will also need to use Chrome as your web browser.
Choir – A chance to have a good sing along to a wide variety of songs.
Theory – Improve your music theory knowledge.
Theory : Group 1 - Grade 1 to Grade 3
Theory : Group 2 - Grade 4 and above
Have a Bash – A chance to play your instrument and 'have a bash' through something different each week.
There will be no pressure to rehearse, record or perform these. We'll cover lots of different styles and even try to include pieces you would like to learn and how to go about doing that, sometimes without even having written music in front of you.
Have a Bash : Group 1 - Grade 1 to Grade 3
Have a Bash : Group 2 - Grade 4 and above
Fifes – For members of MMA's Music Centre Fife group or anybody who has Fife playing experience.
Whilst we encourage the children to have their videos on through the sessions we do not want to discourage any children who may not feel so comfortable in doing that.
To understand how these sessions are run and to answer any last minute questions we will hold a 30 minute meet and greet online session for children and parents/carers.
Have a look at our video below of a little selection of some of our previous Online Sessions.
Our timetable, term dates and sign up sheets can be found on this page.
