As we continue to head into the unknown each day, I wanted to discuss the differences between private voice lessons taught in-person and online.
In-Person – Pros:
- Clients and teacher are physically in the same room, creating extra energy and excitement.
- Clients are able to sing along with the piano in real time and can sing as loudly as they want.
In-Person – Cons:
- Client has to travel to join the lesson.
- *At the moment, wearing masks and fear of COVID.
Online – Pros:
- No commute, taught in the privacy of your own home.
- No need to wear masks.
- A major helper with ear-training due to the sound delay — call and response versions of vocalises.
Online – Cons:
- Clients may be nervous to sing loudly within their home.
- There is a call and response delay, which takes some getting used to.
- Clients must have the accompaniment track ready to play on their end and a strong internet connection.
As you can see, there are obvious pros and cons to both, but I have been teaching remotely for the past year and a half and believe that these two different voice lesson types can be interchangeable.
What are the major differences you have noticed?
