The benefits of learning music online are being realized more and more these days, whether out of necessity or preference. Until now, there has been a lot of resistance to the idea that you can still have a quality music lesson when it's being held online. While nothing can quite replace the interaction that you can have learning face to face, there are many upsides that music students are seeing that for some, may outweigh the benefit of being able to access music lessons.
If you’re unsure about learning music online, it's good to think about what you want to get out of your music lessons and what is important to you as a music student. To start off, let's look at the 5 benefits laid out below
Once you experience what it’s like to have a meaningful lesson with someone miles and miles away, without having to even leave your house or fight traffic, the word “convenient” takes on a whole new meaning.
There is also the factor of carrying an instrument around and having to adapt oneself to a different schedule. You probably don't want to bring your instrument with you to dinner. Online lessons allow both the student and the teacher to work from the comfort of their own homes, where the necessary equipment can be left safe, connected, and ready to use.
Similarly, when it comes to video lessons that can be recorded, you can go back into a lesson anytime when you want to revisit feedback or a technique that you'd like to practice. The foundation is also set for you to send videos of your practice when you have a question or want to confirm that you are doing something correctly. No more wasting a week doing the wrong thing!
Want to learn a specific MGMT track? Want to learn music in a specific language? Or perhaps you’d like to pick up the Ukelele? In either of those cases, depending on where you are in the world, it may be hard to get one of the local music teachers to brush up on the subject and then impart it to you.
The internet, on the other hand, is quite literally an endless resource on whatever topic you want to specialize in. Tonara Connect, for example, is a marketplace full of music teachers that you can connect with and learn from.
The costs for both you and your music teacher can be a bit lower with this option. Meaning, your teacher should not necessarily charge less for the valuable music lesson they give you, but certain expenses like travel and/or maintenance will not be factored into the price. The same goes for you as a student. You won't have to travel to a studio or to their home, something that also incurs costs.
While there are many benefits to learning music online, it's ultimately up to you and your music learning needs. Head to Tonara Connect to find your next online or local teacher in our global marketplace.
