Now Offering Skype Private Lessons and Theory Classes
LAAPA Press Release - 06/11/2012
Louisiana Academy of Performing Arts is proud to announce that the majority of our classes may now be taken online via Skype. You are now able to meet privately online with our University degreed professional music faculty.
Perhaps you are too busy or live too far away to travel to our regular campus locations every week or would simply prefer to have lessons in the privacy and comfort of your own home? Our new Skype Lessons are the answer!
How does it work?
Our Skype music lessons work similarly to our in person private lessons. Once you call or register online and reserve your weekly appointment, we will provide you with login instructions. Each week, you will receive a call on your computer or Ipad from your instructor.
What is Included?
Private Skype Music Lessons at LAAPA include a weekly private 30, 45, or 60 minute session in the instrument of your choice - such as piano, voice, guitar, violin, woodwinds, brass, etc. You will meet one on one with your instructor each week, and he/she will prepare a customized lesson plan to help you achieve your musical goals based on your interests.
What are the Benefits of Taking Skype Music Lessons at LAAPA?
In addition to your private lesson each week, you will also receive access to our weekly 45 minute group theory class (also available via Skype). This theory class is completely free of charge to all currently enrolled music students at LAAPA.
All Skype students at LAAPA also have the flexibility to take lessons with his/her instructor on campus in person at their regularly scheduled time instead of via Skype any week that it becomes possible!
All Skype students at LAAPA are welcome to and invited to gain performance experience by performing in our regular ensembles, recitals, and festivals. Of course participation is completely optional!
What do I need to take Skype Music Lessons at LAAPA?
You'll need a high speed internet connection as well as a computer/Ipad with a webcam that is running Skype version 5 or higher. Our group theory classes require either a desktop or laptop computer with a webcam (IPADS currently don't work via Skype in a group call).
What is the Tuition for Skype Music Lessons?
Tuition for Skype Music Lessons is the same as our in person tuition. Our current tuition information may be found here.
