Over the last year we have been developing a closer relationship with Wells Cathedral School in the UK, one of the top music schools in the country. The beginning of this partnership started in February and March 2016 when some of Hebron School’s top music students received lessons from some of the top music teachers from Wells Cathedral School using video conferencing software called Zoom. This was a tremendous opportunity for some of our best music students, as well as our staff who could sit in and watch the lessons and gain some valuable professional development too! Here are some comments from the students about what they gained from such an experience…
“It was a great opportunity to learn from one of the best teachers from the best music school in England. I gained a lot of information and learned many things that I could not have imagined learning.”Daniel – Grade 8 Violin
