Program Description

Take private music lessons online, anywhere in the world. The American Conservatory of Paris’ faculty organizes lessons online at a time and day convenient to you. This online program is also great when paired with at-home music lessons in the form of short follow-up lessons. We have seen outstanding results from the online lesson format.

One-on-one Unique Teaching

First and foremost, private lessons at home and music lessons online are identical. During the lessons, our faculty will be working one-on-one with the student teaching the technique and repertoire of their chosen instrument while developing a sense of personal responsibility and individual musicianship. Our faculty will also teach note and rhythm reading, as well as basic music theory to every student. Private lessons allow the teacher to cater to each student’s unique needs and abilities, resulting in the most efficient development. 

Performing Opportunities

We believe music is meant to be shared; therefore, each student enrolled in private lessons is offered two performing opportunities per year on Zoom. One concert takes place halfway through the school year and the second at the end of the school year so that we can hear our progression.

Exam Preparation

Finally, this program also prepares students for the non-mandatory Associated Board of the Royal School of Music Exams (ABRSM). The Conservatory encourages all students to prepare for these exams as they give a tangible goal to achieve and motivate students throughout the year. ABRSM is the most internationally recognized music examination organization. To find out more information about these exams, please see the post ABRSM Exams.

Understanding Your Online Lesson Options

Private Lessons Online Weekly – 60 & 90-minute Options

Online lessons are not the same format as lessons at home in a special way. They are unique because you do not have to have just 1 lesson per week. You can split 60 or 90-minute lessons into 2 or 3 short lessons. Here is how it works: If you sign-up for 90-minute private lessons online, you will either have 2 – 45-minute lessons per week OR 3 – 30-minute lessons per week.

Are music lessons online worth it?

In short, YES! The 2019/2020 school year taught us so much about organizing for the unpredictable. In Paris alone, we had interruptions from strikes, protests, and of course, the pandemic. During the entire confinement, we continued music lessons online trying different teaching methods, lesson lengths, and even times of the day to find the right balance to drive our students’ progress. What they accomplished was truly incredible. Everyone soared with the format of a few shorter lessons online each week.
