Live online lessons are proving a very successful way for students to learn. We can listen to what you have accomplished; watch your hands and give feedback; and tailor lessons to your personal needs.

Q & A:
What are the set-up costs?
Skype is completely free to download. Just go to www.skype.com All you need is a computer with a webcam or if you don’t have one you can purchase one for under $30.00 and a high speed internet connection. That’s it!
Can you really correct a student when you’re not there in person?
It hasn’t been any more challenging to identify playing problems and help students fix them with online lessons than with in-person lessons.
What are the cost of your violin or bass guitar lessons via Skype?
All lessons cost $50 for 1 hour. Four lessons are scheduled for the month. Payment is made via PayPal.
Can lessons via Skype work for a beginner?
Yes. I Am Music Academy is for beginners and those who may not have played in a while. The one exception might be young beginning students. With the little ones we think that seeing and hearing just isn’t enough. A teacher really needs to be there to manually adjust instrument positioning, bow hold, etc.
What support do you offer students outside of the online lessons?
No need to worry about not having support outside of lessons we are always available to answer questions by phone or email.
Where do we start?
Send us an email. Please let us know your instrument, location (for scheduling feasibility), and background on the instrument. Afterwards, we will set up an initial lesson.
