with Amy Panetta, MA
Until March 2020, many lessons occurred in-person. Some lessons happened online for students who lived a distance away or were scheduled during inclement weather.
However, during the many US/Canada COVID-19 homestay orders that began in mid-March 2020, Music Mentoring with Amy Panetta, MA became entirely online!
Through much perseverance and patience of the students, parents, and teacher alike, we found out that online lessons were a possible, helpful, and viable way to learn for many students, not just during a pandemic, but anytime!
Our Spring recital in 2020 got rescheduled to May, and then actually went online for our first Zoom recital! In June 2021, we had our second Zoom recital.
Currently, many lessons do occur online to help maintain a safe learning and teaching environment. Many parents and students often prefer online lessons at this time.
As of August 2021, a select number of in-person lessons are available. Please contact me, Amy Panetta, for more information at email@example.com if in-person lessons are available in your area.
Only time will tell, but an online recital may be scheduled for Spring 2022 involving online and in-person students, or something else!
There are other instances when online lessons are preferable besides a global pandemic!
Consider these scenarios...
Do you live in an area where it is hard to find a music teacher?
Is your music teacher on a vacation or leave and you would like to continue lessons while your teacher is away?
Would you like the convenience of taking music lessons from the comfort of your home, or wherever you and your instrument are?
Would you prefer someone NOT to come to your house and you to NOT have to do one more drop-off to an activity location during the week?
Since online lessons can be so helpful...
This what you’ll need to get started with online lessons:
* A piano or keyboard (or ukulele or recorder)
* An internet connection
* An electronic device with a web camera
* Zoom software set up on your device.
* A place to prop your device so that I may be able to see your face and your hands/instrument.
* A smile
Currently, I am offering a FREE, 30-minute trial lesson to get acquainted, learn playing position, posture, new songs, and see if you enjoy the format of an online lesson.
Please note: Choose "ukulele" if you would like a recorder lesson. This will be changed in the future, but please choose "ukulele" for now :)
