Dear Piano Students,
Piano lessons during the lockdown are very different from your earlier in-studio lessons where we met face-to-face. Online learning is very different, and there are other challenges arising from lockdown living.
There’s the social isolation, the need to use cellphones and computers a lot more, as well as the lack of play and movement. The extra Monday group sessions offered to all my piano students since the start of the lockdown seem to be creating a piano student community. It’s lovely to see all of you working together and getting to know each other.
I see three main factors that are really challenging for all students today.
- Online lessons need a high degree of student independence and organization.
- There’s a big problem with computer and cellphone use – it’s just so easy to get involved in doing other tasks and get stuck to a device.
- Exercise and movement between activities, an essential to reset an overly active and creative brain, or to stimulate creativity on lazy days, is missing.
So here’s a challenge for those of you who want to have some fun and learn a few tricks that will make online learning a breeze.
