Sessions gives students access to video lessons, live group and distance training through their schools
JOIN GROUP MUSIC CLASSES: If you are excited about music then this is the right place for you. We add new instrument lessons every week. Work in group settings, private lessons and on your own with lesson videos. Instructors work with students in interactive and creative ways through our student secure music video conferencing system.
ACCESS VIDEO MUSIC LESSONS: Learn instruments with over 1,500 video lessons. We have added much of the Essential Elements Band and Strings method for students. Schedule a private lesson and attend interactive concerts online. While lessons may be classically based, Sessions hosts workshops where students learn recording, theory, jazz and the music business. Middle and high school band, orchestra and choir lessons support relevant topics such as performance, competitions and All State preparation.
AFFORDABLE MEMBERSHIP LESSONS: Sessions Music Academy offers students 4 different membership that build on instrument lessons. They include our Learn, Compete, Perform and Compose student memberships. We offer private online instruction with all of our music teachers. Group webinar style classrooms give students creative and interactive music learning opportunities. On demand classes are the easiest way to learn. Videos are professionally recorded lessons that students can take at their own pace. Private lessons are the most hands-on way to learn music.
NEW – SESSIONS SPOTLIGHT: This is our new social media space. We have weekly interviews with successful music teachers talking about their programs as well as original compositions and performances by middle and high school students. These may be seen on our Sessions YouTube Channel as well as Instagram, our blog and Facebook pages.
WORKSHOPS ON-DEMANS AND LIVE STREAMED: Find a convenient time during the day or evening with our instructors. Learning is increased because students learn on their terms 24/7 – on mobile, computer and tablets. Our most noteworthy feature is mobile webinar conferencing (leave your laptop at home).
MASTER CLASSES: Master classes go much deeper into specific lesson content. These classes range from beginner to advanced taking you through a complete style… such as blues or jazz.
SCHOOL PROGRAMS – SchoolBeats and EEi: SchoolBeats is our new school-based instruction membership.
