We are all missing our offline music gigs and classes, where a 10-minute jam could go to an hour without realizing it. The new normal has offered us the privilege of online classes and hereby discussed are 7 ways in which you can make the most out of your online music classes:
- Define your space:
To stay focused during an online class, it is important to define and set up your space before the class starts. Make sure you choose a dedicated space for the class, where you can keep everything ready and handy. Set up things you might need during your class like your equipment stand, plug ins, and a water bottle to keep yourself hydrated.
- Keep your equipment ready:
With a defined place, you should always keep your equipment ready before the class starts. Equipment here includes your musical instruments and the equipment you will use to take the online class, like your smartphone or the laptop. During the first class, the instructor will help you in setting up the right camera angle, make sure to follow the same during future classes.
- Always be on time:
Always be prepared and log in to the online class on time or 3-5 minutes before the class starts, so that you don’t miss on the starting. Use that time to review and revise the previous class.
- Test your technology:
Before every class try to avoid any technical glitches during the class. Make sure to check your internet connection, video and audio quality to attend the class smoothly. Download and be ready to launch your meeting with the app that is being used like zoom, google meet or any other.
Learning any instrument requires a lot of practice. No matter how good your online class went and you have grasped new concepts and keys, but if you don’t practice them, it all goes into vain. So make sure to make proper notes of what you learn and practice it thoroughly between the classes.
- Ask questions:
It is highly important to come up with questions and clear your doubts during the online class. Practice between the sessions and write down your doubts to clear in the next online class. Remember, your instructor is full of experience and knowledge, and you can get the maximum out of it.
