Blackheath Conservatoire takes teaching online9:14, 21st May 2020
South London’s Blackheath Conservatoire has taken its teaching online since lockdown began, offering interactive Zoom classes and on-demand YouTube box sets.
Clare Cornwell, interim CEO at the Conservatoire, said: ‘We usually have 2000 people a week attending classes here in art, music and drama, from babies through to retirees, so closing our doors meant we had to adjust to survive.
‘Our brilliant tutors have risen to the challenge and transformed their courses online. They’re still the high-quality classes they’ve always been, but they are now ideal for lockdown and beyond.’
Online music courses include sessions for young children, ukulele tuition for three years olds and above, and individual instrumental lessons for children and adults.
