Is Covid sucking the creativity out of yours or your child's life?
WHY I DO THIS
Music is a surefire way to keep us all positive during this time. If you are inquiring about your child, music lessons are way to keep the stimulated creatively, socially, and emotionally. And also, it doesn't hurt to receive emails like the one below:
"Hi Jason. I've been thinking about you lately. Playing the ukulele has been bringing me much joy, especially during these recent months. Thanks for the wonderful introductory lessons."
-Jill W., ukulele student
HOW I DO THIS
By making music lessons COLLABORATIVE, STUDENT-DRIVEN, and FUN.
COLLABORATIVE by working with the student, not simply pointing out what they are doing wrong.
STUDENT-DRIVEN by asking what the student wants to learn (which style, how they intend on using their musical ability) and noticing how they learn. Some students want to spend half an hour at a piano bench, some want to practice rhythms by dancing.
FUN by creating an environment where music lessons are a release of creativity and a social event, not an assignment.
WHAT I DO
Zoom lessons for guitar, piano, ukulele, and drums. I've been teaching individuals and groups for nearly 10 years and have frequently used Zoom before coronavirus.
