Christmas at  Greenside Music

A massive thank you to everyone who took part in our Musical Advent Calendar 2021! It was a great success, and we were so proud of everyone who took the time to practice and record their pieces so we could share Christmas music with everyone!

Also, a huge thank you to everyone who took part in our We Wish You A Merry Christmas project, showcasing the talents of Greenside Musicians of all different ages and levels. Watch We Wish You A Merry Christmas here

Online Lessons Success

We've found many benefits of online lessons, and we thought we'd share a few with you:
 

 - Students are independent learners
As they can't rely on us for things like pointing where they are on the music, or writing things down for them, students have taken on more musical responsibilities, which has in turn benefited their progression both in lessons and in their independent practice.

Improved levels of focus
As students are in their own environments, there's nothing new and different around them to distract them, so their focus is on the task at hand. 

- Convenient and time-saving

Through this past year, several students have moved away from the area or have been to visit friends and family. Either by taking a keyboard with them, or using a piano where they're staying, these students have been able to continue their lessons with no interruptions to their musical progresson. 
 

Many students and their families have also commented on how useful it is to not have to drive to lessons and factor in journey time to their busy schedules. There's also no waiting around in cars with fidgety siblings!

- Just as productive as face to face lessons 

Some people were doubtful that they would learn as much in online lessons as they did in face to face lessons, but we've seen the absolute opposite with many students, with certain students' musical knowledge and abilities coming on leaps and bounds in the past year.

Whether it's to do with being comfortable in their home environment, or enjoying the independence they have with their learning, we've seen many students flourish and achieve things they never thought possible. 

Our first student to take a digital grade exam was awarded a Merit for Grade 5, proving that online learning can be just as successful as face to face!
