Frequently Asked Questions
What are your covid procedures?
All our instruments or work stations are spaced 6 feet apart, and sanitized after each lesson.
What are the differences between group and private lessons?
Group: We alternate one on one instructions (total of 30 minutes) and group activities (total of 30 minutes).
Example of group activities: warm ups, scales, fingerobics, chord progressions, ensemble song, note reading, theory, rhythm work, etc.
Individual work is done with the help of headphones and help the child learn how to practice on his own. Each student learn his own repertoire, at his own pace and level. The teacher helps the students individually during individual work and the student learns how to practice in class, setting up good habits for home practice. The student still have freedom to chose part of his/her repertoire.
Our group curriculum is well organized and have clear goals and expectations that we have researched, experimented and tested for the past five years.
Private: During a private lesson, the student has undivided attention from the teacher, and usually follows a book or a curriculum that the teacher recommends. While we don’t control what is taught in private lessons, we recommend only teachers that follow certain criteria such as: degrees, pedagogy, patience, student’s progress, love of teaching.
Our teachers both teach group and private lessons.
When do you recommend private lesson over group?
We usually recommend private lessons for students with special needs, or very specific goals, or if your schedule doesn’t fit our program schedule.
How can the student have individual practice within a group lesson?
During their individual work time, the students switch to headphones and electric instruments that we provide in class: electro acoustic guitars, electric violins, mute systems for brass, etc.
