Weston College music goes live next month when concerts, instrument lessons and music-mixing software tutorials are available for streaming between 4 and 4.30pm on Wednesdays.
Music curriculum manager Paul Raymond said: “Anyone can watch these free via www.musiccollege.tv, and, through Facebook and Twitter, they can make the whole experience interactive, ask questions, make comments and give feedback.”
He added: “We really believe that this is a step forward in educational opportunities and puts Weston at the cutting edge.”
The live lessons follow a performance last month at St George’s concert hall, Bristol, in which Weston students Bozanne Bozie, 16, Patrick Lim, 17, and Rosie Southern , 18, performed their own songs, accompanied by a professional string quartet. The concert was filmed and streamed live last month by students from the college’s film and media departments.
