The adjustment to this new quarantine lifestyle has had it's ups and downs. It has definitely thrown us teachers a curve ball but we are forever grateful for it!
Why? Because we have seen SO man of our students come out of their shell, musically, like we've never seen before. Students are practicing now more than ever, it has opened our business to more possibilities
and teaching opportunities around the US, and it has given us insight into the environment in which our students practice. This may seem small but it actually helps us better understand practice habits and routines so that we can adjust our teaching methods as we need per student.
With that said, here are some positive benefits of online music instruction:
#1: The cancellation of sports and after school activities have significantly increased practice and progress for several students.
#2: Students have had to figure out many more things in the music on their own, independently--a great life skill!
#3: Online communication will be a standard way to communication for everyone in the years to come.
#4: Parents are thrilled to have an activity that can occupy their children that maintains stability of healthy life during this difficult time.
#5: Music Education at school might be limited or different these days. Online music instruction allows students to achieve a solid music education.
#6: Stopping lessons until in-person lessons can resume will hinder progress!
These are just some of the many reasons why continuing with online lessons can benefit your child (:
