Jazz at the Lincoln Centre
Since it suspended all concerts and classes at the venue, Jazz at Lincoln Center has shifted all programming online and this includes a full schedule for those looking to learn jazz music. A weekly schedule is available for master classes and guided listening sessions. It has opened up its archive of full concerts for free viewing, too, and includes one on the Life and Music of Dave Brubeck. Besides, the centre's managing and artistic director, Wynton Marsalis hosts conversations every week for artistes, students and listeners.

Royal Albert Hall
With a cancelled roster of events, the Royal Albert Hall has launched an initiative called Royal Albert Hall at Home where live music is streamed every night, often recorded at the musicians' homes. Some of the performances so far have been by musicians Alfie Boe, Rufus Wainwright and Ayanna Witter-Johnson. Besides these, some of the cancelled performances from the calendar are making their way online too.
