De-Mystifying Virtual Music Lessons

The notion of “virtual learning” became popularized over the course of the COVID-19 pandemic. With lockdowns in place, those wanting to learn a new skill (or build upon an existing one) took to conference software and the internet to get it done.

Our friends at Music on the Move Studios are among those who have kept their lessons virtual, even as the world has reopened. Added convenience and accessibility are among the benefits to students and instructors alike, as remote learning allows anybody, anywhere to seek education.

Dive in with Erin McLendon (vocal coach) and Caitie Thompson (instrument coach), as they explore the benefits of virtual instruction.

Sunday Replay: Originality, Purpose, and Small Victories

Our recent guests to The Quinn Spinn have spent years refining their creative processes, and the time spent has put them in a position where they can share the lessons they’ve learned.

Today’s Sunday Replay presents a few of those lessons, front and center. Watch the clips below! And, if you want more insights just like these, check out these links…
