Like many people we switched over from in-person music lessons to virtual during the early days of lockdown. I acknowledge that I was somewhat doubtful about the efficacy of a music lesson delivered via Zoom but my concerns were unfounded.
Music Place teacher Hannah has taught my two daughters, aged 12 and 10, for many months now. She is always punctual and issues such as internet bandwidth have been rare, in spite of teacher and students being 4000 miles apart (we live in Washington, DC). My kids enjoy the time with Hannah. The pieces she selects – and emails in advance – are thoughtful and she helps them annotate the sheet music. I’ve been pleased with the progress they’ve made this year and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend virtual lessons as a practical alternative to in-person tuition.
