Text Version Of Why Online Music Lessons – Top 10 Reasons
Online Music Lessons have come a long way in the past decade. Online lessons would be blurry with low quality sound, delayed, unreliable and overall it was just hard to see and hear the instructor / student. Now that technology has caught up the sky is the limit.
1. The Culture
With online music lessons it’s very easy to share cultural ideas, music and ideologies. Many online lesson companies have teachers and students from Texas to England and get to experience the cultural differences between a wide variety of regions.
2. The Technology
The main three technological advances that have helped with online music lessons are cameras, computers and most importantly, internet speed. Because of the present high speed internet that is more readily available we can see and hear people in HD without any hiccups. When HD first came out it was a bit too much to send over our slower internet and would cause huge lags. Now with the combination of HD cameras, laptops / tablets with built in cameras and fast internet the lessons are smooth, high quality and hold a much lower chance of latency or hiccups.
3. The Convenience
In the fast paced and stressful world we live in, it’s nice to have just one more thing that helps us relax. Not having to drive your child or yourself to a lesson is one of the main convenience points. Being able to relax in your own home helps students immensely as well.
4. The Weather
As long as you have internet and a camera it does not matter if there is a hurricane, snow storm or any other harsh weather mother nature decides to throw.
5. The Camera Angles
Many companies have a multiple camera angle approach. For example with piano lessons you can have an aerial view of the teachers fingers on the piano and a regular view of the teacher. This way when the teacher talks you can look at them and when they are demonstrating something you can get an up close, high definition look at their fingers.
6. The Efficiency
What can be more efficient than pressing one button and being connected to your private teacher within seconds. Another efficient measure is being able to pay online with one click and some companies even have automatic payment plans. Many times you can book the best day and time for your lesson at your convenience right from your phone without even having to talk to a person.
7. The Costs
If you have a computer, camera and internet your only remaining cost will be the actual lesson. Because many online music lesson companies do not have overhead they can make their prices a bit lower. You will also save money on fuel or bus fares. As they always say time is money, you save tons by being able to manage your time much better.
8. The Time
As mentioned above, time is a big factor in your busy life and costs you money. If you are getting music lessons for your child and you do not have to drive them to class, wait for them to finish class and then drive home, you are saving time. This is a much better alternative to lessons that are not online where a 30 minute class can end up taking up more than an hour of your time.
9. The Internationalism
As mentioned before companies tend to have students and teachers all over the world. This gives the students an advantage over their counterparts who have never talked to anyone overseas or even anyone in a different state. Understanding cultures gives you an incredible advantage when it comes to people skills.
10. The Reliability
Many offices have an incredibly fast and reliable internet connection that most home owners do not have. Many times the teachers show up to a central office to teach local and online music lessons. This way they can without fail carry out your lesson in a timely manner and will never forget about you or have any reason to be late.
