Online resources for musicians in the wake of the Covid-19 outbreak

As the self-distancing measures come into play all around the world, we are all taking to the internet to keep our lives going as much as we can. Musicians are looking for ways to play and share their music with each other, as well as continuing to teach and reach out to their students to keep them motivated.

In light of this, I’m compiling a list of online resources which are popping up or being offered free of charge which may be of help to musicians in this difficult time. I’ll also include other previous resources which may be of use. If you have any to add, then feel free to email me and I’ll add them to the list.
