Your Music Notes teacher will call via the online learning platform at the start time of your scheduled class. It’s important for the student to be ready and awaiting the video call. We will try three times, within a 15-minute span of time. Here’s an example: If you have a 3:00pm-3:30pm class, we will call up to three times between 3pm and 3:15pm. Students are also able to video-call back.
Students should have their smart device ready and charged, or have the power cable plugged into a wall. Students should have their instrument(s), sheet music, books and any needed accessories (tuners, metronomes, pencils, sharpeners, staff paper, etc…) ready and nearby for the start time of class.
Music Notes Academy is not responsible for poor internet connections, dropped calls, missing devices or any technology-related errors, problems or circumstances that may limit or prohibit a student from attending their online class, private lesson or band class. For missed classes or lessons, adult students or parents may sign-up for a backbeat Make-Up Class online.
Parents of younger children should be present during the class time. Not only is this beneficial educationally speaking, it also helps younger students navigate the technology, stay focused and organized. Parents benefit from observing and understanding what we are trying to accomplish as teachers, helping students appreciate, learn and perform their musical instrument.
Practicing will be assigned just like when we were teaching inside the Academy. Expectations are the same. We want students to practice and build on content, improve and enjoy playing music.
