About the Webinar

NCCO gathers panelists from around the country to discuss the rapidly-evolving ways that conducting is taught remotely. They address topics ranging from individual lessons to group seminars, the use of recordings, recitals, and various approaches to grading. Panelists also address some software tools currently used to connect teacher and student, speaking specific strategies and technologies. The webinar concludes by considering how we can continue to provide the appropriate emotional support for our students, our families, and ourselves.
