The benefits of eLearning
Some feedback from our students and their parents.
My son has appreciated the routine of his remote music lessons and we have both been grateful for it providing a structure within our week.
Now he has understood the challenge of what it is to be fully independent of his teacher, his playing has come along in leaps and bounds and he understands the importance of practising between lessons too. He is achieving musicality – just in a different way – and it is very rewarding to see.

As a pupil receiving online violin lessons, I want to say how amazing these lessons are and how it has kept me on track to achieve my grade 2. I really look forward to my lessons and seeing Karen on the screen. I feel like I have made lots of progress and I am inspired to continue my practice alongside my lessons. It has kept my love for playing the violin alive!

As a parent, I have seen the positive influence that receiving virtual lessons has had on my daughter’s learning, enthusiasm and creativity. It has been inspiring to witness. The lessons have been a huge highlight in our week.
I can highly recommend any parent to access these vital lessons for their children if they are learning an instrument, to keep their enthusiasm and love for music alive in these extraordinary times.
