Transformation in music learning

Online music learned is poised to push the transformation. Unlike traditional university topics which are based on essentially memorizing and regurgitating content, music and the arts require “extra dimensions” from the student-teacher interaction.

Move to HD Video

The first step is the move to HD. High Definition isn’t just for NetFlix videos – it is the only way to convey a music lesson. One camera is fine for a professorial lecture, while a master class is best recorded like a modern sports event – with multiple cameras and post-production.

Student Interaction

The second step involves the interaction of the student. The music student doesn’t “turn it homework” or “take a written test.” A transformative educational experience requires the student to record a performance and send it back to the music teacher. The interaction jumps to a whole new level when the student watches HD master classes recorded in a professional studio and sees his or her teacher critiquing performances and etudes.

Cutting-edge Tools

Finally, the music learning experience of the future requires the cream of the crop of internet tools. Cutting edge chat and messenger tools will lay a foundation for the students to interact with professors and other students.

The above roadmap for transforming online music school will continue with many more technological and pedagogical advances in the years to come.
