The Basic plan (formerly known as the Ongoing Support package) allows the student to study asynchronously with a private teacher. This allows efficient use of both parties’ time. Videos are exchanged in MUCH higher quality than during a live stream or videoconferencing session.
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.
