Thinking about singing lessons online?
So I’ve decided to address this topic today due to the fact that this genre for tutelage is still a new frontier in learning. Having lessons online has an assortment of benefits and opportunities.
Pros: Convenience; the ability for student and teacher to get together at a time easiest for your schedule has never been more easily achieved than now with online singing lessons.
Variety of quality; utilizing the information super highway for your personal learning experience can now bring the best teachers from all over the world right into your home. Living in Kansas? No problem! You can have the best teachers from New York, Los Angelis, Yucca Valley, California… 🙂 or anywhere. Can you imagine the possibilities?
Cons: Connectivity can be bad at times. Nothing is more frustrating to me than having a lesson end abruptly due to the video call freezing up, or having poor call quality appear. Sometimes this can be due to weather, sometimes home internet systems. Still, other times, Skype just has a bad day and logs you off.
Please note: Always be sure to keep the Skype program on your computer up to date. I check multiple times each week. This also helps keep things moving along nicely.
Call delays; there are days when our lessons go along well and then the sound gets delayed on both sides. I recently gave a lesson to a student who heard what I said approximately 4 seconds after I said it. We turned the video off but kept the audio. Some of the delay diminished but I recall having some for a short time.
These are the foremost thoughts coming to my mind for online voice lessons. On the whole, this is truly a unique and engaging way to build the learning life of yourself or your loved ones and I believe the plusses far outweigh those things which take away or add frustration.
