Correspondence Lessons (online teaching)

Due to the recommendation to close both my home studio and Alcorn Music Studios until further notice I have been offering correspondence lessons online in the interim.

In correspondence lessons, the student submits 20-30 minutes of recordings of pre-determined material.  I will record myself and respond with a 30 minute video in response to your submission, as well as a followup email clarifying exactly what to do for the next submission.  You are only charged for the half hour of my time.  

A sample first lesson might look like this:

Record yourself playing

  • a scale in time with a metronome or drum loop (2-3min)
  • 2-3 short pieces (8-15 min)
  • an improvisation exercise (3-5min)
  • along with a backing track I've provided (2-5min)

As well as possible supplementary suggestions (written materials, listening homework).

Similar to in-person lessons it isn't about perfection, it's about making an attempt and learning from each situation.
