What Will Virtual Instruction Look Like?

The jazz directors are hoping to enlist the help of Ed Tech (https://edtech.ccsoundhouse.com) to produce (record, mix, and edit) pieces for our virtual winter and spring concerts. They also plan to use Jamulus software  (http://llcon.sourceforge.net) to enable the students to play together online, in small groups with very little to no latency. Each student will have access to a Smart Music account, which will provide numerous jazz materials.
