As you may know, regular contact with your music teacher is often key to your learning, especially as a beginner. However, finding an available kora teacher for such lessons is often rather difficult as they are so few and far between.
We’ve recently began using online video calls, through Skype, in order to give private lessons. With students as far away as Denmark and Australia we can provide regular sessions for anybody, anywhere in the world!
We offer 5 x 15 minute sessions, that’s 15 minutes of actual recorded learning, which is bought as an advanced booking of 70 euros (or £50). This system works particularly well with beginners and you’ll be surprised by how much you can learn. Though this method is of course flexible and open to suggestion regarding your timetable and style of learning.
As each session is recorded, this enables you to go over it again as many times as you like. We arrange a suitable time for the lesson, all you need is a decent internet connection, a kora, a webcam, microphone and headphones can also be useful.
“ The convenience of logging into Skype once a week is fantastic and the 15 minute format means time and money aren’t wasted while I get the hang of things – I can work on my new skills between lessons, which is highly motivating… I have already made great progress. I can’t believe how much I have learned already and I am so grateful to have such a convenient and affordable means of learning with such a wonderful teacher!”
Watch part of Tamara’s lesson. – She began as a complete beginner in June 2014 and has had roughly thirty 15 minute sessions. Demonstrating that through regular lessons and personal dedication to practicing, its amazing what you can accomplish.
