The benefits of online music classes

Benefits mental development. As with regular music lessons, there’s a wealth of evidence that music training boosts a number of brain functions. Studies show that kids with musical instrument training get better grades. They have stronger reading skills. They improve in math. Learning a musical instrument can even improve a child’s IQ

Benefits self esteem. Music training improves kids’ social development, according to this study and others. Another study found a strong link between “self-esteem and interest and involvement in school music.”  

Grow in independence. Virtual music classes allow kids to learn at their own pace. Instructors provide a basic structure and goals per week (for example), and kids sharpen skills on their own time. This promotes independent learning and self discipline.

Decreased performance pressure. In a virtual environment and in the comfort of their own home, students feel less inclined to compare themselves to others. Absence of judgement or peer pressure boosts their confidence, allowing them to focus solely on their music. Kids who are overstimulated easily or work better in a familiar environment excel with this style of learning.

Convenience. Carrying a large instrument from home to class can be cumbersome. Virtual music classes require no commute at all and are accessible to all students. It also lessens the hassle of arranging drop offs at class every week, ideal for busy parents. 

Involves the family. Families will be able to witness their child’s improvement in online music class. Parents obtain a clearer idea of what their child is learning and what they will improve in class. Kids can work together with parents more easily. 

What your child will learn in online music classes

Technical music skills, of course! Music classes focus on developing professional musicians. Kids are taught chords, how to read music, and how to tune their instrument, and more. They learn tempo, rhythm and many other aspects of musical performance.  

Independent learning. With instructors being virtual only, the onus is on students to take charge of their own learning. Problem solving and adjustments are made by students themselves. Kids work at their own pace, and are expected to practice their instrument and learn theory, under their own initiative. They learn the value of commitment. When they achieve goals, their confidence grows.

Hand-eye coordination. Most instruments require hand-eye coordination. For example, with the guitar, students position their hands on the frets, while they strum, and read music all at the same time. This is another aspect of the mental exercise that makes musical instrument training so beneficial to kids’ intellectual development. 

Creative expression. As kids become more comfortable with their instrument, they’ll  begin to explore composing their own music. They begin to improvise, experiment, and learn how to articulate their emotions and feelings through their music. This ultimate goal of music lessons is its greatest reward, of course. 

Questions to ask online music teachers

As you browse online music teachers, here are some questions to guide you as you search for the program that meets your needs: 

  1. How much experience do instructors have with teaching kids? Can they point to successful students or offer references?
  2. Do instructors have the right equipment to administer their classes virtually?
  3. What music equipment will your child be required to have?
  4. What technology (Zoom, etc.) do you need in place to be part of the class?
  5. How much practice do they expect kids to do every day or week?

Discover camps and programs that will boost your musicality

Our Kids lists hundreds of different kinds of camps and programs. Here are some related options that can help your child round out their love of music or explore how to take it in a new creative direction.

Music camp offers kids a weeklong (or longer) immersion in their beloved art form. You can also use our site to find more specific kinds of music training such as guitar lessons or piano lessons.

Singing camp. The voice is another musical instrument kids can master. Singing camps as well as singing lessons offer kids a chance to expand their technical musical skills and apply them to different genres of music.

Performing arts camp. Musical theatre often includes dancers, singers, actors, and musicians. Camps let kids explore how they can put their musical talent to use in a larger context.
