UK - Guildhall School of Music & Drama has announced 15 new online courses that will run from April – July 2021. The school has transferred its most popular short courses online and created a range of new ones, working with tutors to ensure that they are “just as enriching and memorable as they would be within the building”.
The courses cover music, drama, music production for young women and girls, sound design for theatre, video mapping and an introduction to game audio. Participants will have the opportunity to learn with Guildhall School staff members, as well as guest tutors, in a range of workshops all held on Zoom.
In addition to these courses, Guildhall School is hoping to run several in-person Summer Schools from July - August.

Guildhall School hopes to be able to confirm whether these will go ahead at the beginning of April 2021. The courses would run at the School in London from 12 July to 7 August.
Online courses that may be of particular interest to LSi readers include:
An Introduction to Video Projection Mapping: Online - “This one-week course will give participants a unique opportunity to learn and develop the necessary creative and technical skills to prepare and project video onto a 3D structure, using industry standard video projection software Resolume Arena 7. Participants will be introduced to the basic principles and techniques of digital video mapping such as preparing digital content, setting up hardware and keystoning, through a combination of online teaching, and self-directed time to explore tasks and group discussion.”
Sound Design for Theatre: Online - "This course will introduce participants to the practical, creative and technological aspects of sound design and management for the stage. The course will cover the purpose and timeline of theatre sound and roles within this (e.g. Sound Designer, Principal Sound Engineer and Sound Operator), as well as an introduction to relevant equipment and software, such as QLab and Pro Tools. This one-week online course is suitable for anyone with an interest in sound, its manipulation and use in a theatrical or narrative context." 
Introduction to Game Audio: Online - “This intensive three-day course will introduce participants to all the major aspects of game audio through fun and practical tasks, which are centred around real game projects in Unreal Engine 4 (UE4). Working in a team of up to four people, each task will challenge participants’ skills in a different area. Participants will create a game prototype, record and design ambient and gameplay SFX, compose interactive music, write simple code and implement assets in five different game projects.”
Music Production for Young Women and Girls: Online - “This course has been designed as a response to an underrepresented group within the industry and has been tailored with masterclasses and workshops from women in electronic music, as well as advice and a Q&A session for women and girls wanting to pursue a career in music production. The course aims to inspire an upcoming generation with the vision to create a more balanced sector. Participants will develop their skills in composition and music technology through daily workshops, which will cover a range of skills including composing music for film, making a dance track and developing a conceptual piece.”
