Schools and teachers will have access to a wide range of online resources, including high-quality audio-visual recordings of musical works designed to link in with existing examination syllabuses and school curricula, ‘talking head’ style discussions, detailed lesson plans, and suggested classroom projects all of which can be used as a springboard for further school activities. Available for all school levels, each clip comes with a number of individually tailored age-appropriate materials ensuring that its usefulness is maximised in every school situation.
Opus You is the brainchild of conductor-entrepreneur Scott Ellaway who has drawn from his already considerable experience of music and the educational world. Ellaway believes that ‘teachers are crying out for classroom resources that can be used on a long-term and sustainable basis which are both high-quality and easy to use, recognising that they are increasingly overstretched and pressured by administrative duties. Opus You has responded to this cry, creating a product that fulfils all of these criteria, actually enabling teachers to get back to teaching itself in a hands-on and exciting way.’
On 1 February 2012 a 90-day free trial will be made available to schools across the globe. Opus You has already partnered with Edinburgh, Derbyshire, Monmouthshire, Oxfordshire, and Southampton councils to pilot the scheme in local schools in the UK. In North America similar links have been made with the New York Department of Education and schools in the Boston, Chicago, San Francisco and Toronto areas will also benefit from the pilot.
