For the time being, we will be conducting remote lessons with students by using FaceTime, Skype, or Zoom.
On-site lessons are not available at this time.
We are encouraging all students to maintain their lessons and practising during this time. You can keep your current lesson day/time, and we can carry on with the lessons. If you haven’t done this sort of thing before, we can help you through the process.
You can use a computer or tablet to do this. If you are using a tablet, you may need to position the device so that your teacher can see you at the proper angle.
Our son Guilherme has been taking both violin and piano online lessons with TSSP teachers (Mr. Julian Fisher and Ms. Susan Dennis, respectively) on a weekly basis since March 2018, when we came back to our country after having lived for two years in Toronto.
We feel privileged to have such dedicated teachers who accumulated a robust experience in using technology to teach students remotely, and we can confidently and enthusiastically recommend this form of teaching at difficult times such as the one we are facing now. In fact, since we are also experiencing a lockdown period in our own country, we recently decided to increase the number of music lessons our son will have with his TSSP teachers over the next weeks.
It is really simple to set up an online lesson, the teachers have been always available to fully support us with their experience, and the results are excellent. It is really worth a try!
