To our Wonderful Academy Families,
It is with that advice, that we have come to the difficult decision to stop all in-person lessons and classes at the Music Academy starting Monday March 23rd. Know that while this decision was not an easy one to make, we have been working diligently to move the Academy online.
All music lessons at this time will be run through “Zoom." In consultation with many other music schools around Canada and the US, Zoom seems to be one of the best options for both ease of use and overall sound quality. We want to make sure all of our families are comfortable using Zoom, so we are happy to help in any way we can. We have prepared the following info-card below on how to get set up:
PART 2: TONARA APP
As such, the student’s experience within Tonara is just as important to us as the teachers’ experience. Finding the motivation to sit down and practice music can be tedious and tiresome at times for kids, that’s why we’ve worked hard to create features and benefits for students that makes practicing more engaging, interactive and also fun.
With features that interact and engage with students, give students real-time feedback, and a level of gamification students are excited for their practice sessions. Overall, Tonara teachers report an increase of over 68% in average practice time since they have started using Tonara.
For students, Tonara has a studio & global leaderboard that allows students to always check their standings, and the more they practice the more points they earn. We truly believe in making practice engaging and interactive. We believe in trying to help them see the homework assignments not as something boring which they need to do but rather a fun, interactive activity that they look forward to each day.
As students continue to practice with Tonara, they are able to see their own growth and progression with statistics and all the fun rewards that they receive as they practice more and complete more assignments. Below is an info-card to help you get set up:
