✴️ Online or In-Person

Are online lessons as effective as in-person lessons?

Yes! We provide high-quality online music lessons with our amazing teachers using video conferencing systems like Zoom, Skype, or FaceTime. This means we’re able to see and hear students just the same as we would in an in-person private lesson. All you need is an iPhone, tablet, or laptop and you’re good to go!  Psst… we also have some fabulous music theory games that only our online students get to use!

Although there are some differences, multiple studies on distance learning, including
this study from UNC, have shown that students are 36% more focused and perform 22% better when compared to in-person lessons.

We also take advantage of Zoom’s High Fidelity Music Mode, which was developed in partnership with Yale School of Music. This ensures that your teacher can hear every detail of your playing during each lesson.
