Julie Cleveland, piano instructor on Cape Ann, takes lessons online for both kids and adults

 

PIANO LESSONS DURING THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC:
All of my teaching has moved to online lessons for children and adults via Zoom. Although online lessons are not traditional lessons(!), during these trying and challenging times, young people out of school on creative activities outside of online school, too. As I teach teens, I know that some are having a real difficult time during this. I believe music will not only help them with their stress, anxiety, depression; it may help your whole family to cope. And you can take a time out for the duration of the lesson, I got it. ūüôā
If you haven’t already seen the video (see below) of the Italian people singing together from their balconies when this all started, it is truly inspiring and moving and shows how the power and joy of music keeps us all connected and “alone together.”

If you’d like to see a Zoom lesson in progress, please visit my Kids’ Lessons page here.

And contact me here to learn more about my online lessons for your child or for your tween/teen. They also include video check-ins half way through the week and soon, possible get-togethers to share the music they are learning and playing during “group” lessons online.
Stay safe, and consider adding the joy of learning piano. Of course it’s not the same, I long for when that time will come.
Sincerely,
Miss Julie

Adults
As with my young students, all lessons are online for adult students as well. Please contact me here for more info. And visit my page on lessons for adult students here.

This blog post by a fellow piano teacher is wonderful, I can say that her advice here is invaluable.¬†(Beta-tested it this summer.) ūüėČ

This is wonderful reading for not only parents, but for older students, too. And piano teachers!

Here is the link. You can also download it here as a PDF to print it out to read it again and again.

Adult Piano Students’ Soir√©e

Every few months my adult students and I gather together and have a Piano Soir√©e; we just had one last Friday night here in Gloucester. Here’s one of my adult students¬†playing Send in the Clowns, by Stephen Sondheim. Absolutely¬†beautiful. ūüôā
