You’re ready to find a music teacher for your child so they can finally start learning that instrument they’ve always wanted to learn how to play. However, there’s only one thing holding you back — the pandemic. We’re all over it, but unfortunately, viruses have a mind of their own. Thankfully, you don’t have to wait another year to see if your child can start music lessons. They can do virtual music lessons instead! If your child isn’t currently doing school via virtual learning, they probably had a stint of it at some point over the past school year. What does virtual learning look like when it comes to music lessons? What do virtual music lessons look like, and is it worth signing your child up? Here are some of the most common questions we get from parents about virtual music lessons.
1. What’s the structure like for a virtual music lesson?
The online music lessons you receive from a Lessons In Your Home instructor are done by professional virtual music teachers who know their students and stay with their students throughout their musical education. Unlike music lessons you could find on YouTube, we don’t provide a “one size fits all” lesson. Instead, our online music teachers craft lessons and give specific instruction for each of their music students.
A virtual music lesson is like an in-person lesson without the physical presence of a person. There are a few things to set up first, such as what the camera is viewing during the lesson, but the instructor is the same, and professional education is the same.
2. What types of music lessons can you teach?
Through Lessons In Your Home, you have access to choose from one of our many experienced music teachers who can teach your child in your home virtually. All of our teachers are professional musicians who cover a wide range of instruments. Whether you’re looking for online guitar lessons online or online violin lessons, we’ve got you covered. Voice lessons? Absolutely. Virtual voice lessons may be the easiest lessons to take because there is less setup involved. We also can make piano lessons happen virtually too. Our professional piano teachers will help you set up the camera for the best view during your lesson.
3. What’s the best platform to use?
You may be curious to know which platform we use for virtual music lessons. The answer is – nearly all of them! Our professional music teachers can meet with you one-on-one over Zoom, FaceTime, Skype, or Google Meet. As long as you have a smartphone (or a computer with a camera) and an instrument, you can begin virtual music lessons today. This is what makes private online lessons worth it!
4. How does the timing work?
The timing for virtual lessons is no different than the in-person music lessons your child may have taken in the past, aside from your commute to and from wherever your child took music lessons. Instead of driving, you’ll need a fraction of that time to make sure your child is ready for their lesson and has the camera properly set up. Once you hire an instructor, you can work out the schedule with him or her for the best days of the week for you as well as timing. You can also contact Lessons In Your Home for more specific questions before you hire a tutor. Click here to read our blog about what sets apart great online music teachers from the bad ones.
