The pandemic has created a changing, fluid environment in which plans fall apart frequently.
The Bluegrass Arts Collective is creating innovative, online programming to continue providing high quality music instruction that is both reliable and remote. This ensures the safety of our teachers and students’ families, and allows for consistent instruction.
We are thrilled to introduce our General Music lessons, “Music Makers,” and invite you to consider these lessons for students who would otherwise be starting out on an instrument. Children will learn all the fundamental skills of reading music that can be transferred instantly to the instrument of choice later. We will teach the basic skills of music literacy: to read and sing intervals, understand and clap rhythms, to recognize songs and instruments. We have several teachers who are able to accommodate older students who wish to dive more deeply into music, the underpinning theory that makes it meaningful; as well as younger students who are experiencing formal lessons for the first time.
For all other private instrument lessons, we utilize online platforms including Zoom, FaceTime, Google Hangouts, Skype, Facebook Messenger, and Duo; all you need is an internet connection, a device that can handle video conferencing, and a willingness to try.
We look forward to adding more as our community continues to grow.
