The pandemic of Covid-19 has adversely affected the education sector and due to which all education sectors have started giving their classes online. It also includes online music lessons like online guitar lessons, online piano lessons, etc.
According to a report, it has been found that 1.38 billion students from 138 countries come online for providing online classes to students. Through online learning, students get a lot of benefits but at the same time, students and teachers need to take care of some essential things. So, let’s know about all those important things:
Show your face, hands, and instrument: If you are taking online classes from any app, then make sure that your face, hands, and instrument are visible to your teacher so that in case you make any mistake, they can correct it immediately. And most importantly, this will develop your skills and you will be able to get good feedback.
Check the location of your microphone: Before signing in for online music lessons, attach your microphone to your phone or laptop to make sure it’s not too close or too far from your device, as both of these situations will distort your sound. So, for the best experience, set your microphone at the right place.
Set up in a well-lit room: Make sure that the room where you are taking the online class should have good lighting so that your music teacher can notice the movement of your hands and correct your mistake immediately. In this way, you will be able to learn music better and become a good musician in lesser time.
Plug your devices in before beginning the session: If you want to take your class without any disturbance, please have your devices plugged in before starting the class. By doing this you don’t need to worry about the battery, leaving each of you unsure of the learning scale or whatever is on the agenda. There will be the peace of mind to focus on.
Better connectivity: The most important thing you and your student should have while taking an online music class is a good internet connection. If you don’t have this, then you may face a lot of disturbance in your online class.
Use a computer: Use a computer instead of your phone so that your students can have a wider angle and a clearer view of you and your surroundings. This will give you the opportunity to teach in an engaging, distraction-free learning environment.
Use headphones: You may face some sound-related problems related to online classes. In such a situation, you should use headphones and ask your students to use them too.
Speak slower: Due to the distance in the virtual class, it can be difficult to understand each other’s points of view, so speak a little slowly. With this, students will be able to catch and understand your point. If you speak at your normal speed, then your students may not understand your point and your time goes in vain. So, try to speak slowly and a little loudly in online classes.
