Break The Isolation: A webinar series hosted by AMEB

 

During lockdown, we created a series of webinars for music teachers, students and parents to come together each week and digitally break the isolation. Our 30-minute webinars feature a series of special guests, each who has their own unique connection to AMEB and something helpful to share.

 

As teachers return to work and lockdown comes to a close, our Break the Isolation webinar series has also wrapped up for now. Thanks to all those who joined us!

 

You can catch up on all episodes on YouTube or Facebook. Below are links to each episode, along with other resources that you might find useful.
