Yes! Learning music on your own is possible & thank goodness for that, because many musicians were self-taught. You’ll find lots of examples around you, among famous artists and among the teachers and students of imusic-school.
Even if you’re taking physical music lessons, your practice sessions remain essentially individual. What matters most is your motivation to play regularly. So the most important thing is to find the thing that motivates you, be it a teacher, a band, a song you really want to learn…
Are physical lessons better?
Of course! The teacher is there to answer your questions & analyze your mistakes. Physical lessons can be a source of rhythm and motivation to learn. But you have to find the right teacher and method that suits your project: do you want to learn to play for fun, to become a professional, play classical, jazz, pop or rock…?
We created imusic-school for those who don’t have the financial means to take physical classes, or for those who prefer to learn & express their musicality in a more intimate setting. Or for those who can’t find the teacher or method they’re looking for…
To compensate for the absence of a physical teacher, imusic-school offers an online forum where you can exchange with other students as well as with our team of teachers. You can also send us your questions and videos & we’ll give you feedback.
Combining online and physical lessons: the future of music education!
Studies and testimonies confirm it: the best way to learn is to combine physical classes with online courses. Many of our students also attend physical classes on the side.
During the week, students will often find a way to figure out things they didn’t understand during their physical lesson. The ability to use several approaches can unlock your understanding and mastery! Students will also find a way to enjoy themselves by playing or studying different styles, or different pieces than the ones learned in class.
More and more teachers and schools are evolving and using this complementary method. To make the physical lesson a moment of exchange and interactivity, more and more teachers ask their students to consult our online courses. Professional schools such as Music Academy International even advise their future students to follow our courses before looking to enter their Academy.
A school like INM offers its students voice lessons using our platform.
