So... yeah, this has been in the works for a while! Surprise! :P
For details, rules, and application, check out my shiny new Online Lessons page!
There is actually a lot of debate surrounding the effectiveness of online lessons. To be completely transparent, at first, even I wasn't too keen to teach lessons over Skype or FaceTime. How do you fix embouchure? How do you fix posture? How do you demonstrate flute breathing? How do you hear tone when the audio is so crappy?
It took a couple months after receiving some email inquiries about teaching online lessons for me to realize that... well, I've sort of have already been teaching online lessons this whole time.
I've been making tutorials on my YouTube channel and Curious.com page.
From the teacher's perspective, video tutorials are even worse than online lessons. You don't even know who you're teaching!!
That's when it hit me on the head like a ton of bricks. Any online lesson I teach... is basically a tailored 1-hour-long video tutorial. I'll just need to teach the way I do in my videos!
Of course, this means that online lessons will not equate in-person lessons. You're basically signing up for an entirely different learning experience than in-person lessons. There's a lot more talking involved, since I need to explain to you how stuff works instead of just showing you, and you therefore need to be extremely focused to absorb and apply what I'm teaching. Because there's so much talking, each lesson will almost feel like a crash course. Not gonna lie, pretty intensive on both ends (that is, if you want your online lessons to be as effective as possible), but definitely rewarding. Since it's so intensive, having an online lesson once every other week seems to work the best with students. It gives you more time to absorb and apply.
Space is EXTREMELY limited, since I'm working on a bunch of other projects, so if you're interested, apply ASAP!
So with all that said... anyone up for lessons? ;)
