Learning a new skill is quickly becoming the most popular way for people to spend their extra time while stuck at home.

As more and more people are going into quarantine in an effort to combat the global coronavirus outbreak, many are also looking for good outlets for all their extra time and energy. This is doubly true for students who now have to continue their education at home while schools are closed.

A lot of people are turning to museums for virtual tours and online classes on art, history, and science. And now, you can even learn about music and video production courtesy of the Grammy Museum.

This museum, which is dedicated to the history of recorded music and all aspects of the music-making process is now offering some special online classes for people who want to sharpen (or learn new) production skills.

On the museum’s special Museum At Home page, you can currently choose from several classes designed for both beginners and experienced learners, including two levels of a video production class and two levels of a class on electronic music production. If you’ve never tried to record your own music or video, it’s actually a wonderful way to dip your toes into the production world.

In addition to classes, the Grammy Museum has some recorded discussions and online exhibitions from the museum itself, including an exhibit on the long history and relationship between popular music and baseball, a 40-year history of punk music in America, and a lesson on the music of the Civil Rights Movement.

The museum plans to release new lesson plans online throughout April, including more electronic music and video production levels and even some classes on careers in the music video industry. And if you’re just looking for some more exhibits, the museum is also releasing more content, including programs and conversations with Billie Eilish, Brandi Carlilse, and Kool and the Gang.

A full schedule of the museum’s upcoming online learning programs, as well as online exhibits and public programming, can be found on the Grammy Museum website.
