About Online Sitar Lessons
See, hear, and talk with a teacher in real-time Internet lessons. Meet face to face, ask questions, watch your teacher demonstrate and explain, and then get personal help learning – just like in a traditional private music lesson. The only difference is that it all happens directly on your computer
In general, to have an online lesson, the student must have a PC, Mac, or tablet, with an Internet connection. Lessons are conducted via Skype or FaceTime, so a webcam is required.
Our students say the camera works better than in-person demonstrations. Further, because the teacher camera can get within 1/2 inch of the fingers, every detail of position and movement is clarified, close up. Comparatively, in person students rarely get that close! Consequently, because your instructor can control what he wants you to see, with greater focus, the online, real time video is often easier to watch than an in-person session.
Altogether, online lessons work exceptionally well.
Certainly, there are no trade-offs in terms of educational quality or personal human interaction. So, video conferenced lessons are just as personal, just as lively, and just as effective as being there in person. Also, online lessons offer many benefits. Firstly, students save time. There is no need to travel to the lesson. Secondly, students save money. There is no need to pay for transportation expenses.
