Musical Futures Launches New Website for Schools & Home Learning

12th January 2021

Following last week’s announcement from the UK government on the emergency measures to contain the spread of the new variation of the Covid-19 virus across the UK, Musical Futures would once more like to do everything doing possible to continue to provide the best possible support to the Musical Futures community while acknowledging the difficulties that we are all continuing to face.

Musical Futures Professional Development

Back in June and July 2020 we ran a series of free twilight professional development sessions for teachers and those working with young people in music.  We hope to be able to offer something similar once again, so please keep a look out for more info on this via our newsletters.

Other Sources of Support

This blog which we published back in March 2020 contains our guide to the Top 10 resources for music teachers planning for students working from home and has some ideas for other websites that you may find of use.

This open source Google Doc – Online Tools For Teaching Music – also lists some great resources.

Musical Futures Online Free School Closure Resources

We know that many of you will once again be facing huge challenges while you put things in place to support your learners and to provide them with activities which give them the opportunity to continue their learning at home.

Our newly launched resources website – Musical Futures Online is a web-based subscription platform with over 500+ resources available for classroom and home learning.

In order to support schools we would now like to offer free access to specially curated selection of Musical Futures Online resources.

We know that this does not replace teaching but anything we can do to help support with the current situation is important to us.

The Musical Futures Online School Closure Resources include:

  • 2 x Body percussion playalongs
  • Chair drumming demo and playalong
  • Dance Monkey playalong
  • Blinding Lights playalong
  • Introduction to Music Production using free online software

Please note: The Musical Futures Online school closure pack has also been designed so that students can access the resources from home with the link and password

Register below and we’ll send you the password to access the above resources over a selection resources for students of all ages from our brand new website.


Excellent workshops ‑ extremely accessible for all abilities and levels."
