Online Music Classes

Online Music Lessons with DoRayMi

Thanks so much for considering us to help you with your online music lessons needs. We offer guitar, ukulele, voice, and piano lessons for students of all ages and levels. These lessons are conducted through Zoom and our lesson curricula have been modified to engage students through the online platform, using shareable games, apps, curated video content, and whiteboard features, just to name a few.

About Online Lessons

For Voice Lessons

Voice lessons online are very similar to in person. We do warmups and work on repertoire. If the student is a child, their lessons are playfully themed around their favorite subjects and characters, and I choose zoom backgrounds and YouTube soundscapes to match the themes and keep their interest.

  • You will simply need two devices for these lessons. One device is to play your music and one device is for the zoom call.

Example Voice Lesson

For Piano Lessons

In online piano lessons, I use screen sharing through zoom to work with a variety of apps and curated content for music listening. If the student is a child, their lessons are themed playfully around the content of our books and focus, as always on subjects like music reading, music appreciation, composer’s lives, and repertoire. I develop at-home practice strategies and lesson schedules for students who need a little more help with focusing. As for what you will need:

  • two devices on zoom, one placed two-three feet above the keys so I can see your hands (try using a selfie stick, shelf, or books to create this)
  • a piano or keyboard
  • your book (will be given at first lesson)

*if you need extra help with the camera set up, please reach out at rosalindhayes@doraymilessons.com and we can schedule a camera consult

Example Online Instrumental Lesson

For Guitar and Ukulele

Guitar and ukulele are presented much the same way as in person. I use screen sharing through zoom to work with a variety of apps and curated content for music listening. If the student is a child, their lessons are themed playfully around the content of our books and focus, as always on subjects like music reading, music appreciation, composer’s lives, and repertoire. I develop at-home practice strategies and in lesson schedules for students who need a little more help with focusing. You will need:

  • your instrument
  • a stool or pillow to sit on so your instrument is high enough for me to see
  • your book (will be given at first lesson)

*if you need extra help with the camera set up, please reach out at rosalindhayes@doraymilessons.com and we can schedule a camera consult
