Quality of the teacher: Most educators agree it is better to have online lessons with an excellent teacher than it is to have in-person lessons with a less qualified teacher.
Searching for the best match to suit your needs: Seeking a new teacher using internet search options broadens the possibilities since choices are not restricted to one’s local geographical area.
Connecting with the right teacher: Lessons online give students the opportunity to find the best teacher whose expertise can help them attain their goals.
Added benefit of Recording the Lessons: While students always have the option to record their in-person lessons, it rarely happens. But students can easily record and archive online lessons for review at a later time with digital recorders or apps.
Immediate Practicing: Students who take lessons online can practice immediately after the lesson when ideas are fresh and when energy levels are still high.
Warming Up: Students can warm up on their instrument and review their assignment right before their lesson, and have the advantage of playing their own instrument in the comfort of their own home during the online lesson.
Increased student performance: Research studies have found that people tend to be very focused when interacting via webcam, email and/or phone with minimal off-task distracting behavior during the lesson.
