GMC Children's Channel

The Global Music Centre launched the GMC Children's Channel during the coronavirus restrictions in the early spring of 2020. During that time, the emergency circumstances affected the GMC’s operations in many ways. For instance, it was no longer possible to arrange musicians’ visits and workshops at daycare centres. We wanted to employ musicians as quickly and efficiently as possible, giving them the opportunity to try new ways of working while providing experiences and enjoyment for children and adults at home – as well as at daycare centres and schools, when that becomes possible once again.
