I've got a five-page list of resources for kids. But adults need entertainment on lockdown even more than kids do, to keep us sane!
Here are my favourites:
Register for the Gareth Malone’s Great British Home Chorus: https://www.classicfm.com/artists/gareth-malone/choirmaster-gareth-malone-home-chorus-coronavirus/.
Or sing like an Italian: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dhTjGS3QkYE.
Learn a new instrument & Support a local artist
Music is good for your soul. Artists are having a hard time with all the gigs and concerts cancelled. I am a big advocate of learning to play the Ukulele, it's something you can do with 5-10 min daily practice. To find a local artist: ask your local FB group.
Learn to play the Ukulele with Cynthia Lin
She is an amazing teacher and has created a whooping 300K ukulele community online. She generously posts free lessons on Youtube (can keep you going for a year). Or you can become her Patron on Patreon (from $1 per month) to get access to more of her lessons.
Check out beginner ukuleles on this store or call them, they are super-helpful: https://www.southernukulelestore.co.uk/.
