SEASON #1 – 2022

January – March 2022




The first iteration of Over the Digital Horizon focuses on four key areas and balances an exposition of emerging ideas and technologies with the best current, practical applications.

The programme explores how new technology can inspire and invigorate your work in music education, and we hope it will be of interest to anyone interested in exploring the interplay between digital, music and the arts.
