On March 23, Governor Cooper signed Executive Order 120, extending school closures through May 15 at least. Students across the state have been working from home while the state works to slow the spread of coronavirus.
To bolster educator efforts, the N.C. Symphony announced they would begin sharing free music education materials online, according to WRAL.
The symphony has posted a digital broadcast of the North Carolina Symphony Education Concert and accompanying materials, free of charge. The materials together with the concert are aimed to promote the fundamentals of music education.
Per the press release, the video features performances of Beethoven, Brahms, William Grant Still and more. The conductor, Wesley Schulz, also covers melody, rhythm, dynamics, tempo and texture. The accompanying literature introduces students to composers and shares interesting facts about the person and their work.
The work was put together in collaboration with state music educators and aligns with the state curriculum, WRAL reports.
