NOT A SECOND LIFE RESIDENT?
If it is new to you, Second Life is an online networking platform developed to function as a 3 dimensional virtual world. It is currently gaining international media attention. I firmly believe that the kind of immersive, interactive, 3D environment that this type of virtual world provides has dramatic implications for those of us dedicated to generating interest in classical music at all levels, including music education, music appreciation, and especially for the promotion of new music and new composers.
Our facilities in Second Life will include museum displays, interactive exhibits, classrooms with audio/video capabilities, a lecture and recital hall, screening rooms, open air concert space, holodecks and an in-world staff. By the beginning of this fall, we will be regularly presenting classes, concerts, recitals, lectures, and individual lessons. In fact, this new technology enables us to function just as a “real” physical world building.
I encourage you to visit Second Life’s website to learn more about this unique networking platform. I also welcome any questions you may have concerning Music Academy Online’s Second Life presence. I look forward to hearing from you and answering any questions, or better yet, join us in Second Life.
Let us help you!
