Online General Music Lessons

New to music or unsure which instrument or style of music you’d like to study? Studying general music can give you a broad understanding of concepts around music theory and performance. Online lessons can be a perfect introduction for kids or young students looking to get a better understanding of music. Working with a teacher online can give you the foundation you need and the convenience you want.

Build Your Foundation And Understanding

Explore multiple instruments and the relationship between them. From woodwinds and brass to percussion and rhythm section instruments, learn the unique differences that separate the instruments but also ties them together. Subjects like singing and pitch, music theory and composition, and even examining instruments like piano or guitar on a basic level can provide a great gateway to deeper study.
