The Australian Music Examinations Board has developed a series of webinars, called Break The Isolation., featuring interviews with musicians, teachers and other experts in their field.

The webinars cover topics such as strategies for teaching online, teaching speech and drama, and wellbeing and connection in social isolation. The webinars are recorded and available free on YouTube and Facebook to help the AMEB community stay connected.

The Board is also offering its Grades 1, 2 and 3 Theory of Music courses for free until June 30 and 30,000 people have already signed up. The courses are self-paced and delivered as a series of videos and PDFs and include access to practice questions.

It has also negotiated a new type of copyright licence for music teachers. The Screen Sharing Copyright Clearance Licence is free and allows teachers to legally screen-share AMEB publications via their chosen online lesson platform.
