Since the onset of the Covid-19 crisis, Settlement Music School has both pivoted to distance learning for all students while also offering two free, online courses streaming through Facebook: Settlement 101 and Settlement Kids.
- Settlement 101 brings in faculty to introduce attendees to some of the coolest aspects of making music. From improvisation, to songwriting, singing, music production, and everything in between. New sessions are live every Thursday at 6 p.m. ET on Facebook and can be rewatched at any time.
- Settlement Kids is designed to keep kids entertained, engaged, and connected with free music and dance classes. Tune in live Tuesdays and Thursdays at 10:30 a.m. on Facebook.
As Helen Eaton, CEO of Settlement, notes: "We know that art and music lifts our souls and can unite us all. We believe that the best thing anyone can do in a crisis is to be productive and stay engaged. Here at Settlement, we believe that the act of doing, of practicing, of reaching goals, will be what gets us through this time with our spirits intact."
