Online music lessons are becoming more and more popular. They allow people to learn how to play an instrument or sing without being in the same room as their teacher. In fact, they don’t even have to be in the same city, state, or country! These online music lessons can be especially good for families with different schedules. As a parent, driving your kids to and from lessons can be a hassle. In fact, that was one of the reasons we started Lessons in your home!
If they work with a teacher online, that’s not a factor at all. Some people do wonder if online lessons are as good as in-person lessons. A virtual lesson, like the ones we do here, are really close to having that in-person experience. Not to be confused with online music classes with little interaction, these lessons are live and interactive. In addition, they actually have some benefits that traditional, in-person piano lessons in Atlanta for example, don’t have.
1. They’re More Convenient than in person lessons.
As mentioned already, online lessons are very convenient. Your child can work with their private piano teacher from home. Even better, they can still have their lesson even if you’re visiting family or aren’t home. Your child can work with their teacher anywhere they can get an internet connection. Some teachers may even be able to do lessons over FaceTime, Zoom or other smartphone apps, so even a computer isn’t necessary. Teachers in different time zones may be open to working with your child later at night, too, so their online lessons won’t conflict with other after-school activities.
2. They Happen On A Platform Your Kids Already Enjoy Interacting With
If you’re reading this, chances are you are a parent thinking about lessons for your kids. You might have grown up with computers, but nothing like our kids. When they were born mobile devices were already commonplace. When learning online, kids are using technology that is untuitive to them. In fact, they may even prefer it over in person lessons for that reason.
Additionally, when learning online, your child’s music teacher is much more likely to point them to some of the many different online tools available. Your child might make use of websites and online tutorials to study music principles. They might play games or download apps that help them learn music terms. They may even use interactive tools to work with their teacher during their lessons. There are so many different online tools that help with learning. While traditional in-person teachers may suggest some of these tools to your child, online teachers are much more likely to have a good list of online apps and other resources.
