Virtual Corner

VIRTUAL LEARNING

There are plenty of modern tools that allow you to enjoy the fun and fulfillment of piano lessons from the convenience of your own home while maintaining the efficiency and interactivity of in-person teaching. Through Facetime and Zoom, we teach students across distances. Not only does this uphold current safety standards but it also provides in-house activities and entertainment to cope with the consequences of quarantining. Through virtual piano lessons, we aim to continue to spread the joys and gratification of piano playing, even given the current global situation.

MUSIC THEORY

LBN music theory is the study of musical principles and the limitless possibilities of creating and playing music.  We teach our in-studio students the practice of reading and playing notes, counting and note value, rhythm and ear training exercises.

 

MUSIC APPRECIATION CLASS

Singing: Students will investigate various uses of the voice by singing.  The student will sing a variety of songs of limited range alone and with others, including singing two-pitch (sol, mi) songs, using echo and ensemble singing; and singing at the appropriate time following a musical introduction.

Instruments & Rhythm:  Students will play a variety of pitched and non-pitched instruments alone and with others.

Music in Motion: Students will perform rhythmic patterns that include sounds and silences, using instruments, body percussion, and voice. The student will demonstrate a steady beat, using body percussion, instruments, and voice.  Students will respond to music with movement, including illustrating moods and contrast in music and children’s literature; performing dances and other music activities from various cultures; and exhibiting respect for the personal space of others when moving.

Art &Music - There are notable development benefits of combining art and music.  Learning to create and appreciate visual aesthetics may be more important than ever to the development of the next generation of children as they grow up.  Combing art and music develop motor skills, language development (socialization), decision making, and visual learning.  When kids are encouraged to express themselves and take risks in creating art, they develop a sense of innovation that will be important in their adult lives.

IN-STUDIO LESSONS

OUR STUDIO IS OPEN FOR IN-STUDIO LESSONS

Most of us are aware that Virginia is entered carefully into Phase 3 for the business sector. We want you to know that your health and safety are our top priority and we’re taking careful precautions to keep our teachers and students safe.

Creating A Safer Studio Space

These measures include:

  • Lessons by appointment ONLY
  • Only ONE student per teacher or siblings in the studio – WAITING AREA CLOSED. Students may be dropped off and picked up.
  • Temperature checks
  • Increased cleaning of high-touch areas
  • Mandatory sanitation (handwashing before the lesson is REQUIRED)
  • Studio team to wear masks
  • Common theory area spread out to each corner of the studio to adhere to social distancing guidelines, plus any other local rules and regulations.
  • Respect your judgment and safety concerns, there we will also, continue with lessons virtually.

Take care and stay safe!
