COVID-19 Response

Sound and Music: COVID-19 Response
Date: 
Monday 16th March 2020

Given developments in recent days surrounding COVID-19, we want to acknowledge and reach out to all the composers and artists whose livelihood has been decimated.

The Sound and Music team is now working remotely, but remains entirely committed to you. We will do everything we can to support and stand up for you, more so than ever during the current crisis. We are here for you.

If you want to get in touch with any member of the team, please contact them via their email as denoted on our Team Page. If you are unsure who to contact specifically or have a general question, you can email info@soundandmusic.org or message us on Twitter, Facebook or Instagram.

In terms of specific support, there are several things we are acting on already:

  • We are creating a centralised resource for composers which we will promote to our audiences. 
    If you're a composer or music creator who has music to sell online, or services that can be sold digitally, add your details below to tell us and our audience how people can support you. Tell us how people can support your music here, or tell us about services you can provide here.
  • We are running a free 'Zoom' tutorial for composers, artists and music educators. 
  • Each Friday, we will be running a free tutorial for composers, artists and music educators on the video conferencing tool Zoom. In this session, we'll demonstrate its uses for remote working, online tutorials and more, followed by a more open discussion about how Sound and Music can best support the community of composers and music creators in the UK at this time. View all of the available sessions here.
  • We will be sharing advice and guidance on our Social Media. Follow us on Twitter to keep up with this information, and be sure to message us if you have any specific queries.
