Online Guitar Lessons
Philadelphia Guitar lessons in the age of a pandemic
As you probably know this has been a tough time for everyone, including musicians. In most cities, communities have lost their ability to make a living. Tours have been cancelled. Corporate events, private parties and weddings have been cancelled or postponed. Restaurants have closed. Schools are closed. There is almost no opportunity for musicians to perform or teach. So, what is a musician to do?
If you happen to follow professional musicians you have seen them playing live performances on Facebook, Instagram, and YouTube. So, what else are they to do? Many musicians are offering virtual music lessons. Many teachers have been doing this for years. It is the new norm right now. This is a golden age of opportunity for kids and adults who want to learn music but it is also a new way for skilled musicians to teach.
This is a great time for students. If you have ever wanted to find the perfect music teacher, or music school for you, now is the time. You can find the right teacher that just jives with you and your interests. In this brave new world, you can find someone who speaks to you and speaks to your musical language as well. There has never been a better time to learn and to take the time to find the teacher that is just the right fit for you.
This is also a great time for teachers. If you have never taught before, either because you weren’t interested or weren’t able to find the time, now is a perfect time. Schools are hiring teachers. Your friends may want to take lessons or know people who are interested. You can finally learn to organize and teach what you have learned through the years. You may find that your own playing improves when you are forced to distill your musical approach and show it to someone else.
In the age of COVID, we are interested in finding new music as well as digging up old records. We want to listen to old classics but we also want fresh new music. We want to communicate musically. We want to learn to grow and teach. This is an exciting time in creativity, art, and collaboration. There has never been a better time than now to learn guitar or to teach it. It is up to us to keep music alive and frankly, we have so much time on our hands these days, it would be a shame to waste the opportunity.
In this new world we are living in, opportunities abound. Make learning the guitar a top opportunity for you to learn and grow at something that may be new to you. The possibilities for this exciting time are endless. What’s holding you back?
