In order to maintain the regularity of lessons for our students while prioritizing their health and safety, we are offering online lessons (via Skype, Zoom, or FaceTime) for students and families who do not wish to have in-person lessons. Tuition rates remain the same for online and in-person lessons.
We have successfully offered online lessons for many years for students due to inclement weather, transportation issues, etc.
- These lessons can occur at alternative times from your regularly scheduled lesson time at a mutually agreeable time with your instructor.
- These lessons can be shorter in duration which we highly encourage for our younger students.
- Students can opt to have additional enrichment lessons to focus on topics such as song writing, advanced theory, music history or another topic.
- Use this opportunity to work with another teacher from out team.
- We encourage you to connect with your instructor about online apps, music games, links to videos, and or worksheets as curriculum supplements.
- Our teachers have been working on a communal Google Doc to share in real time their online lesson best practices, tips, photos and success stories for students as young as 4.
