Adapting to the New Norm – Virtual Music Lessons

Adapting to the New Norm – Virtual Music Lessons

During this unforeseen pandemic, we have slowly been adapting to a new norm: distance learning. It is inevitably becoming an important schooling style for both teachers and students before resuming to the regular in-person classroom setting. Thankfully, there are many softwares that are conveniently available for students taking music lessons remotely. Distance learning might seem to be a temporary solution and you’ve probably wondered the effectiveness of virtual lessons. Well, the results that I have observed so far from my students are quite impressive. From my observation, virtual lessons have made students become more attentive, more independent in observing and marking their music score, better at finding hand positions, and asking more questions than ever. Students have also become better listeners to instructions and music. 

Here are some important tips to help to make your virtual lessons successful:

  1. Make sure you, your device, and your instrument are ready before your lesson time. 

  2. Prepare writing utensils such as a pencil, markers or a colored pencil to mark and take notes.

  3. Maintain a respectful communication.

  4. Request a recording as needed.

While I do miss the interaction of face-to-face communication with my virtual students, I am also very pleased with how they’ve progressed. I am looking forward to seeing both in-person and virtual students’ performances for our virtual recital.

San Antonio Music Academy is very well organized. My daughter's piano teacher is wonderful! She's been taking lessons for 5 months and looks forward to each lesson. I really enjoy the recitals at the LOL Comedy Club.

My daughter has been registered here since she was 7. Each instructor she’s had has been very friendly and great to work with. Currently she has lessons with Ms Maria and we are so grateful for her and the entire SAMA staff. I can’t recommend enough.

San Antonio Music Academy is awesome, my son loves the guitar lessons and is super excited to attend every week! He started with zero experience and progressed surprisingly fast. Randy is an amazingly talented guitarist/teacher. He is very patient, yet knows how to push students to the next level. Highly recommend all the instructors, the staff is great!
