On-Line Lessons

We specialize in online lessons and both our students and faculty are loving it!  Nearly 95% of our students are online and we continue to enroll new distance-learning students across the country. This speaks to both Foothills and our students' love for music and commitment to keeping quality musical instruction in our lives.

Here are some responses from parents of our distant learners:

            "My high school son and middle school daughter have taken lessons from many teachers, including teachers in Switzerland. For the first time they love their lessons and often play piano and cello together. Thank you for making music a permanent part of their lives" - K.G. 

       "Perfect!  Thank you for doing the online lessons!!!  It is helping to keep some sort normalcy  to his schedule and day now". - B.C.

        "Thanks for braving the new world of online.🙂. Appreciate your patience! He finished the lesson and said he liked it ... that's a two thumbs up!" - S.W.

"We were unsure of online lessons, but my son is definitely progressing. It was nice that when we moved from Seattle to Harrisburg we could continue with lessons." - A.H.  

"Sounds like all went really well. I am so happy you are gutsy and willing to try something new." - M.C.

"Thank you. He loves it. He practiced this morning quite a bit" - B.D.

What a typical lesson looks like:
* Warm-ups/ scales/ technique
* Play song/literature requiring this scale/technique
* Screen share music and discuss/annotate what we see/what parts are difficult and jointly      determine why/how to get over that hurdle.
* Screen share theory/composition and work/complete in class
** Some "buddy" lessons. We invite friends to join and play in a "round robin" setting and       compose/improvise together.

Now is a perfect time to begin lessons. For all the reasons our parents are citing, lessons  bring routine, purpose, interaction, and above all a "happy place" for creativity and imagination. You can be a complete beginner! 

This is about connecting and keeping the joy/love of learning in our lives.
