Asynchronous Learning

At Mage Music, students have the option to send videos instead of meeting live with their teacher, or they may opt to have me review their videos during our Zoom sessions so that they can receive instant feedback.

From Tonara (the platform used for music lessons communications at Mage Music):

Ongoing Support packages give you the option to learn from a teacher without holding a live lesson. Support can happen via chat messaging in Tonara Connect or Tonara Studio, where you can receive advice via audio and video recordings and text messages. Through Tonara Studio, you can also receive detailed assignments and track your practice sessions.

A great fit for:

  • If you would like individualized feedback but do not have time to take live lessons at a certain time. Please note: you would still need time to practice of course!
  • If you are on the waiting list and would like some coaching while waiting for a live spot in the schedule.
  • If you have an internet connection that is not strong enough for live lessons.
  • If you prefer to perform without the teacher watching live.

Video Subscription

The video subscription allows students to access instructional videos as taught by Mage, NCTM. These videos cover various method books, repertoire sheet music, and techniques. Please note that if you would like access to content that covers published material from books and sheet music that you will need to have a licensed copy of the material.

  • ✅ Access to video library created by Mage, Nationally Certified Teacher of Music
  • Other plans are available that combine the video subscription with group or private lessons held monthly–please inquire.
  • This subscription does NOT include feedback from the teacher but instead gives you view-only access to premium videos.
