Transitioning to an Online Music School Part 1
We are 3 days into transitioning into an Online Music School due to the affect s of COVID-19. Our staff and students are healthy, which is the best news of all!
I decided to pause teaching at the studio premises on Sunday 22nd March. The safety of our community and the wider community is far more important than being irresponsible and staying open.
We have taken this opportunity to transition to an online school commencing Monday 30th March. We have started creating new online content, videos, podcasts and creating online resources to use with our new online lessons. Once the current situation has stabilised, we will open the studio for face to face lessons.
We will be using a mixture of Zoom and Skype depending on the individual students needs.
All our teachers are available online. We are all learning and trialling the online platforms to allow for the smoothest possible transition we can.
Caringbah Music only employs University trained musicians and qualified teachers. This is our strength. Each teacher is experienced with a wealth of knowledge. It is this fact that moving online, whilst stressful and hurried, is an achievable task!
3 weeks ago: if you asked me if this would be happening i would've dreamt we would be doing this so early on.
2 Weeks ago: I started the initial planning.
1 Week ago: We ramped up our planning.
3 Days ago: I closed the doors and started the transition!
In 4 days time we reopen online!
What a crazy ride!
