This page was created for music teachers to find out more information about the VIRTUAL MUSIC ROOM and the community I am currently building. As of now, the Facebook Community is growing at a fast rate daily and has become an important resource for many music educators worldwide.

To help support the nationโ€™s fight against the COVID-19 pandemic, I created the community ‘VIRTUAL MUSIC ROOM’ to help music educators globally learn the online technology tools and best practices to adapt their teaching methods to online music lessons.

This THINKTANK group is focused on a wide-range of Music Technology subjects:

๐—”๐—ฏ๐—ผ๐˜‚๐˜ ๐— ๐—ฒ: Iโ€™ve been incorporating technology into piano lessons since I started teaching 15 years ago. I’ve been using music technology for over 20 years, as I’ve always had a thing for synthesizers, computers, recording, etc.

I made the transition from Full-Time In-Studio lessons to Full-Time Virtual piano instruction about a year and a half ago.  Prior to the move, I had been running a thriving music teaching studio near Dallas, TX called Musical Accents for over 10 years. During my current virtual music lessons, I incorporate the Zoom conference app with students and use optimal technology along with additional interactive tools to remove the distance from our online lessons. The live lessons are recorded and lesson notes are stored in a customized Digital Learning Hub. All files related to lessons can be easily accessed through one efficient technological system. 

My mission with the Virtual Music Room is to help fellow music teachers keep their businesses and help the industry of music teaching stay afloat. Iโ€™ve worked with all types of private teachers, school administrators, college department heads, owners of music schools around the world.  The Virtual Music Room community has become an incredible team effort to help each other. Teachers that were just starting a few weeks ago with no idea on how to teach online are now teaching other teachers within the group how to do things. 

Many teachers have now found that online methods reduced the mess from people coming to their homes and are now able to provide even better instruction due to all the technological resources at their disposal.  

โ€œI taught fifteen lessons today, online. Iโ€™m exhausted but thankful to have the ability to keep teaching and keep things as normal as possible for the students,โ€ said Janice Lumpkin, owner of Janice Lumpkin Piano Studio. โ€œSeveral parents thanked me for the option to keep lessons going.  Iโ€™m thankful for the helpful advice from the teaching community and especially Stephen Hughes, who has gone above and beyond.โ€

Many students and parents prefer the online piano teaching method because it is more convenient to just jump online instead of driving to a lesson.  Plus, many piano students find itโ€™s more comfortable to play on the same piano or keyboard they have been practicing on and less intimidating to play for the teacher online.  The online piano courses work especially well for adults to fit into their schedules.

With my vast experience and expertise in pedagogy, technology, marketing, and creative techniques in virtual piano teaching, I am not only helping music teachers just survive but to thrive and grow. As teachers are getting their bearings and settling into new routines, I am focusing on creating new paths for music teachers to grow active and passive income streams.
