Music Lessons On Line

Online music lessons

I want to start out by wishing and praying health and wellness to everyone. This is an unusual time we’re living in. It may feel like this will last forever, but like everything else, this too shall pass! The best thing to do is stay strong and positive. Music heals our mind and soul, which effects our bodies, so this is a great time to consider on line music lessons!

Taking music lessons is normally considered a non-essential in life, but I disagree. Without music and the arts, we’re only surviving on this planet. Many studies have been taken to prove how music improves academics, confidence, and joy in one’s life. If you’re already taking music lessons, I hope you continue. And since in-person lessons can be challenging, this is the perfect time to try out on line music lessons with your instructor. If you or your kids have been thinking of taking music lessons, now is a great time to try virtual music lessons, when so many outside activities have been cancelled.

Melody Music Studios has offered on line lessons music lessons since 2010. I didn’t know how people would react to the idea at first, or if it would work for those that tried it. What started out as an experiment has continued to grow in popularity. I will admit at first most people turned down the option without hesitation. As the years have passed, more students and parents of students are giving the idea a chance. It may not be the same as in-person lessons, but it’s a close second. The challenges can be mostly with technology, which will only get better as technology improves. For people that live in a remote area with no music instructors available, or unable to travel, this is a life saver.

What I found for those that gave on line music lessons a try is they discovered it wasn’t so bad! At Melody Music Studios, we offer a one business day grace period to cancel after the first lesson. I especially made a note of the students taking on line lessons, and found 9 out of 10 DID continue their on line lessons. That gave me the confidence to continue offering on line lessons. In-person lessons are still most preferred, but more and more are giving on line music lessons a second look.

I know a lot of schools and work that involve interaction are taking advantage of on line or remote technology. We’re very fortunate to be living in a time where this is available. Past generations did not have this when going through a situation like ours.

So the bottom line is we need music lessons now more than ever! Consider taking on line music lessons if you’re unable to take in-person lessons. You may find it better than you thought and healing for the mind and body.

The Gift That Keeps on Giving

What kind of gift keeps on giving and lasts a life time?  The gift of music lessons, of course!  Gift certificates for music lessons say you care about your special someone in your life.  With every lesson,  practice session, or performance, he or she will be reminded of the person who cared enough to buy a gift certificate to sing or play their favorite instrument.  At Melody Music Studios, we offer gift certificates for all instruments, from piano, voice, guitar, drums, to all kinds of stringed instruments (banjo, violin, viola, cello, bass, mandolin, and ukulele), as well as band instruments (trumpet, trombone, saxophone, clarinet, and flute).

There are so many gifts that are quickly forgotten.  Candy gets eaten, flowers die, things get broken or lost, BUT, a gift of music lessons can never be lost, broken, or forgotten.  It literally lasts a lifetime!  The great thing about buying a gift certificate for music lessons at Melody Music Studios, is that we have a large network of instructors and guaranteed we’ll have the right instructor for that special someone.   Our gift certificate NEVER expire, and the recipient can choose the instructor right from our website at MelodyMusicStudios.com by clicking or taping their state, city, and any instructor’s bio on the list.  The instructor’s bio includes their background, performance recordings, and what we call the “meet the instructor” video.  It’s like a meet a greet with the instructor, so the recipient will feel like he or she knows the instructor personally before even starting the lessons.  

And, it’s so easy to purchase, by phone or on our website.  Simply go to our Gift Certificates page to enter your information, the recipient’s information, as well as the instrument and number of months you wish to purchase.  It automatically calculates the total before entering your credit card information.  If you would like to purchase by the lesson instead of by the month(s), simply call us at 800-Melody 1 (800-635-6391) to purchase just the right amount of lessons.  We’re happy to work within your budget and what works best for you and the recipient.  

We also offer on line lessons (skype, facetime, etc),  so no matter where the student may live or the instrument you choose, we have an instructor available.  For students that may live outside our area, or in a remote area where a music teacher is not available, this is the perfect solution!  Skype lessons are fast becoming a fun and easy way to take lessons, and it’s conveniently at home for both student and teacher.  Skype lessons are live, interactive lessons with an instructor (not a video), and is much the same as in-person lessons, except the interaction is through a computer, laptop, or tablet.  We have a large network of instructors that offer skype for all instruments to choose from.  At Melody Music Studios, only the very best instructors are chosen to be on our skype list, so you can be assured your special someone will receive the very best instruction possible.  

So instead of that old boring traditional gift, why not do something special and buy a gift certificate for piano, voice, guitar, drums, violin, viola, cello, trumpet, trombone, saxophone, clarinet, flute, or any instrument you can think of!  Not only is the gift of learning to sing or play an instrument a lifetime gift, he or she will remember YOU for a lifetime!
