Music lessons online instead of “face to face”

The Lucie-Kolsch Music School also currently has to offer its individual lessons digitally. But that also offers opportunities.

WORMS » Officially, teaching at the Lucie-Kolsch Music School is suspended until the end of the Easter vacation. Direct debits and reminders are temporarily suspended. But what happens next? Group and ensemble classes are omitted throughout the entire period, but in individual classes, all colleagues are looking for creative solutions to keep in touch with the students.

Where music and teaching used to be in a confined space is now organized, telephoned, chatting and conferenced via a video platform. “Public music schools are not particularly advanced in terms of digitization per se. However, we can use fast and stable WiFi in the Prinz-Carl system, ”says head Wolfgang Neidhofer.

For him, this crisis also harbors an opportunity: “The entire education sector is now discovering the advantages of digitalization. We can only benefit from this in the long term. ”Not only technology-savvy students and teachers were very open to this alternative. However, it is clear that long-term online instruction is not a full substitute for classic “face-to-face” instruction.
