Summit Music Center Offering Virtual Lessons as Response to Coronavirus
Summit Music Center in Manchester, CT is remaining committed to their mission of education and enrichment of students in the musical arts by moving their entire teaching studio, curriculum, and lesson program online. Their existing students have already migrated their lessons online this week, and effective immediately, Summit is accepting new students for virtual lessons. This includes the thousands of students currently furloughed from public and private schools in the area, and separated from their conventional music educational programming. This also includes adult students who have studied music in the past, or anyone looking to begin a new pastime, hobby, or creative endeavor.
“We are very excited to offer this virtual lesson program for our students. Our children have varying degrees of understanding of our current global situation, and equally varying degrees of coping with these new circumstances. Our adults are all struggling with how to balance the many different family and work aspects of this ‘new normal.’ We know through our many years in music instruction that it has the ability to communicate and comfort, especially during challenging times. We are thrilled that we can offer our students and families some continuity and routine amidst their disrupted schedules, offer a chance to blow off steam, and present options for activities during family hours.”
Summit Music Center Owner Tom Deffenbaugh
Virtual lessons will be happening via Skype and FaceTime, two popular and widely-used video call applications for smartphone, tablet, and desktop/laptop users alike. Students, or parents wishing to sign their children up for lessons, can call Summit Music Center at (860)645-1502 to confirm a lesson time.
