If you’re feeling lonely, we’ve got you – 7 days a week. Come on in to one of our group classes! Parents and siblings, if you have a family member registered at our school, you’re all welcome to explore our classes!

Don’t feel like playing your instrument in a private lesson? That’s ok too! You can use your lesson time to catch up with your teacher, relax, and talk about what’s happening and share about each others experiences. Just let them know you need some talk time.

Taking Care Of Yourself:

  1. Take News Breaks. This includes social media. Find 2 or 3 reliable news and social sources, and try and limit from your engagement with those sources to 2 or 3 times a day.
  2. Care For Your Body. This includes meditation, eating healthy, exercising regularly, and limiting or avoiding alcohol and drugs.
  3. Make You Time. Make time for yourself and do the activities you enjoy. We’ve curated hours and hours of musical activities for you to enjoy with our fun community for free!
  4. Connect With Others. Connect with us on zoom, or your friends on other social apps. Share you concerns and talk about how you’re feeling.

Top 3 Tips For ZOOM Technical Issues:

  1. Audio Settings: There are 3 audio settings which we feel are important to change from the defaults. You can find those here
  2. Preserve Processing: Close down any extra browsers, browser tabs, or apps on your computer or device you’re not using that could hog CPU power and cause lags in your zoom session.
  3. Internet Connection: Try to make sure there is no interference from your wifi signal, or that are you close to your wifi as possible. Do a speed test to check your internet connection.

Zoom Security

Zoom has seen exponential growth in it’s usage. As a result, Zoom has focused attention on increased security. This past Saturday, Zoom made an upgrade that required us to update our zoom link to include an embedded password.

Be aware that we have taken steps to minimize security risks on our platform. Due to our unqiue zoom setup, security is enhanced beyond just our secured link via the use of private breakout rooms for students, and for visitors requiring front desk approval before entering our main room.

If you are a registered student, please contact us to get our updated link.

Zoom Virtual Backgrounds:

Have you wondered how some of our staff get their cool backgrounds behind them in our zoom lobby? It’s easy! Find instructions here. Older devices may have not virtual backgrounds available as an option. Need some ideas? Have a look at these hipster backgrounds, or these kids backgrounds

Are you enjoying your online lessons? Share a pic of you with your teacher!

We will be picking selfies to win a $25 amazon gift card!

Thank you and congrats to the following Students. You each win a $25 gift card! Contact the academy to collect your amazon gift!
