Online Virtual Lessons
Online virtual lessons include three basic components:
1. Live Virtual Lessons - via Slack, Zoom, WhatsApp, Google Hangouts, or another convenient platform. These lessons will be once a week, and typically last 20-40 minutes.
2. Video Tutorials - to be uploaded to your designated Google Drive folder or YouTube. These tutorials will be used to teach new repertoire and technique. The student will be able to access them at any point during the month to aid in practice.
3. Chat platform - if desired, each student/parent will have access to their own Slack channel which can be used for questions, to share videos, files, or pictures, and any other communication.
