While distance learning models may not provide great outlets for ensemble music making for band and orchestra programs, quality experience in instrumental music education can still occur through synchronous, asynchronous, and off line instructional approaches. In fact, this shift in instructional practice provides an ideal opportunity to understand how students approach music making within their own homes and allow us as music educators to focus on how students practice at home. In this session, we will discuss approaches to distance learning that support the development of student musical skills through various instructional means, with some attention given to meeting the needs of students who lack access to technology and broadband internet. These strategies include one direction rehearsals, guided home practice, off line practice challenges, and partner pairing. In addition to discussing instructional practices, we will also consider various means of appropriate assessment in distance learning settings. While the educational objectives may shift from those of the large ensemble classroom, distance learning does not mean that band and orchestra directors need to abandon instrument instruction.
