Music Notes’ online music lessons have been really effective since March ’20. We (of course) prefer in-person teaching at our Academy. However, some of our students have improved by leaps and bounds, really taking advantage of the extra time at home with additional practicing. I’m certain online music learning is here to stay. The foundation of Music Notes Academy has always been about a comprehensive music education. Learning music online can be comprehensive, with the right teacher.

Not sure if Brielle shared the news but she auditioned on xylophone and already got the email from her teacher, she made wind ensemble honors! Thank you so much for preparing her. This meant a lot to Brielle and I haven’t seen her so happy in a long time. Next up is drumline for marching band.

I wanted to share with you – Rebecca may have shared with Mr. Sean. Rebecca told me the second week of the Broadway camp they were learning music and the instructor asked a question about the key signature. Rebecca answered to their surprise and came home absolutely elated that all that music theory Mr. Sean makes her do (that she complains about) enabled her to answer!!! That is part of my deep appreciation for the quality of your school!!

Best music school ever! You will not be disappointed. My son has been here for 5+ years and loves it, owner and teachers are the best. 100% recommended. ?

I just wanted to say thanks again for setting up the (online) lesson. Sean was very helpful this evening and taught some interesting beginning techniques. I enjoyed working with him and look forward to next week’s lesson!
