SEASON #1 – January to March 2022




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

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


We are planning to make the recorded webinars available over the coming months.  Watch this space for more info…
