Roland Taylor, one of tomorrow's panelists (who will also lead the singing workshop) will be drawing on his experience of e-learning from the ukulele prom at the BBC Proms in 2009:
"It's a great story to tell. I was interactive Editor at the Proms at the time and also produced the late night prom with the Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain for BBC Radio 3. It was a really joined u...p affair. I suggested to the director of the Proms and the Ukulele Orchestra that we have a play along moment, live on air, during the concert. It was fantastic. My team and I made some learning resources for the web which are still up there. People got their tickets for the prom and then learned their ukulele part online before turning up to see the concert. Just before the prom we had a quick rehearsal together (all one thousand and eight of us) and then played live on air. It was fantastic.
Here's a page that tells the story:
Here are the learning resources:
This was a success!"
Come along tomorrow to hear more from Roland and the other panelists!
