VIRTUAL • SAFE IN-PERSON • MULTI ROOM ISOLATION SESSIONS • VIRTUAL & IN-PERSON HYBRID
Recently we have experienced some radical changes in our lives. Everything from our work and social activities to the way students are being educated. The music lesson industry is no different. Overnight many music educators had to convert to 100% virtual programs due to COVID-19. We are so grateful that CHMA was able to embrace change and roll out an extraordinary virtual program instantly. Now that we are being allowed to re-open by the state, all music lesson studios must be mindful of how they go about it. You can't just simply open your doors. The amount of planning a studio has to do is quite extensive.
Clarendon Hills Music Academy believes that our families should be in complete control of how we transition back into in-person music education. This is why it is important to let our students decide how they want to approach their music training. This is why we offer multiple options. Students can choose anything from 100% virtual to a safe in-person music lesson. You can even choose the best of both worlds by choosing a hybrid approach by doing a mix of both virtual and safe in-person lessons. Since we have the unique advantage of setting up our space using the recording studio model, We can run some of our recording artist programs using multiple digitally connected rooms allowing us to play and record in realtime in complete isolation. The perfect solution for creative social distancing.
We hope to be able to find the perfect type of music that matches your needs and comfort level. Please contact us with any questions you may have.
INGREDIENTS TO AN EXTRAORDINARY MUSIC EDUCATION EXPERIENCE
FOCUS ON THE MUSIC YOU LOVE
The most common reason students lose interest in music lessons is a result of not having the freedom to choose the music they feel connected to. Why not take lessons that are focused on the music you LOVE?
LARGE STUDIOS THAT ALLOW FOR SOCIAL DISTANCING
In today's world, we need to allow space for our students to social distance. Many outside music lesson providers made the mistake of trying to maximize their profits by cramming too many studios into a limited space. Most of these smaller closet size studios do not provide students with the space needed to allow for social distancing. This is why we intentionally offer larger lesson spaces than most competitors.
OPEN DOOR POLICY FOR VIRTUAL & IN-PERSON LESSONS
Parents should always be given the option to observe their child's lessons. It is proven that results may increase with parental involvement.
Students should be given the opportunity to explore the creative side of music most "traditional" lesson providers fail to explore. Having the experience of learning Improvisation, songwriting, style study and playing by ear can increase the level of engagement immensely.
Since it is difficult to achieve mastery without the building of a music foundation, students shall take a deep dive into skill-building exercises and theory. This allows each student to play more complex and involved versions of the songs they love.
Enjoying the process is huge when it comes to a student sticking with it! Striving to provide a lesson experience that is focused on having fun while simultaneously developing skills is the key to an engaging .
CUSTOMIZED LESSON PLANS
A one size lesson plan is not practical. Since each student has different tastes and learning styles, each lesson plan should be different. At CHMA each student benefits from a custom lesson plan that focuses on the interests of each individual student.
4 P's BEHIND AN OUTSTANDING MUSIC TEACHER
Proficiency, Passion, Professionalism, and Personality are the 4 pillars of any ourstanding music instructor. We are very focused on building a team of instructors that have all 4 of these qualities.
PRIVATE MAKEUP LESSONS
There is a growing trend in our industry of offering group makeup lessons instead of private makeup lessons. If a student cancels a lesson with 24-hour notice, they should have the opportunity to take a private makeup lesson.
FREE STUDENT SHOWS & VIRTUAL CONCERT SERIES
Hard working students should have the option to show off their efforts by giving them the option to perform two times a year. We also feel it is important not to charge a ticket fee for families to attend student shows.
