Do you teach lessons online? Ever wanted to try but been a little nervous about getting started? Skype lessons is one of my favorite win-win solutions when students need to miss their lesson. But it is also a great tool for teaching weekly lessons. Ever have a student move and they really wish they could stay with you? Maybe they can via Skype? Ever wish you could teach more during the day time hours when all your other students are at school? How about teaching via Skype?
Dr. Melody Payne has a terrific training webinar for music teachers who are interested to teach online. In Learn to Teach Music Lessons Via Skype, Melody goes through the benefits of online teaching as well as what she calls the “less positives” that can be addressed. (I love that term!)
You will learn tips on students and teacher set up, what equipment you will need (basic setup and lighting) in addition to any enhancements you may want to use (audio tools, recording software, etc…). Melody also has great tips on finding students for online teaching, policies to think about, how to take payments and such.
She shares teacher and student tips for before, during and after the lesson and how forming relationships despite being online happens. I love when she shares a cute example of a relationship she has established with one of her online students.
