Music Inspiration Series

Featuring Flipped Classroom Instructional Method

Our Music Inspiration Series offers online group classes for both instrumental and vocal performance, as well as music literacy development. Our virtual learning group classes are a superb entry to beginning music learning and an enriching supplement to one’s music lessons.

In our virtual classroom, we incorporate our core values of music education by ensuring that students develop collaboration, communication, creativity, confidence, and critical thinking skills in an ensemble setting. Students will learn the intricacies by listening to each other as peers and practicing together as a collaborative ensemble.

 

At the end of each course, we offer a virtual performance opportunity as we believe the best way for students to gain musical proficiency is through performance-based music education.

Our group classes are ideal for aspiring musicians or anyone looking for a creative, exciting musical challenge. 

 

Summertime is the perfect opportunity for students to explore the tending and popular aspects of music lessons and performance!

Aspiring vocalists learn the fundamentals of breathing, posture and diction through the use of technology . WeMusic guides singers through the early stages of vocal progression, assisting with pitch training, developing timber and keeping steady tempo.

Students will gain a foundational understanding of basic vocal technique and terminology, using standard musical theatre repertoire and musical exploration to create characters and stories of their own.

Budding Violinists will learn how to transfer your classical training to popular music. Students evaluate the role of violin as a tool for melody and harmony, and investigate how we can use the medium of video to become our own "one man band." 

COMMON QUESTIONS

What ages is this for?
8-14

 

What do I need?
You will need a computer or mobile device with a microphone, camera, and that allows for the ZOOM app to be downloaded and opened. Stable Internet connection is needed as well along with headphones or earbuds. For enrollment in our Violin Group class, please have your violin ready for participation. 

Are classes on the same days at the same time? How many classes? How many weeks?
Yes, the class runs every week for 6 weeks on the day/time that you registered for. Each Zoom class is 1 hour long. 

 

How many students are in each class?
Our group classes are designed to give the best possible experience with a minimum of 5 students and no more than 12 students in each course. For one-to-one instruction, please inquire about the amazing private instructional lessons we offer at WeMusic by emailing academics@we-music.com

Are courses grouped by level or age group?
Our group instruction is for beginners to intermediate level students looking to supplement their current music instruction or who are interested in music lessons but not quite sure what area to pursue. However, if we receive enough interest, we will open another time of instruction to better group students according to age and level. All additional classes will be offered an hour before or after the original scheduled time, to limit scheduling issues as best as possible.

What is the structure of your classes?
Each week prior to a student’s live Zoom Class, parents will be emailed a 10-minute mini- instructional video to share with their children. Each video will focus on the instructional skills and learning objectives that will be discussed and worked on in that week's class, giving students ample time to practice, identify problem areas and get their questions ready to be answered. 

What is a flipped classroom?
In the traditional model, the teacher delivers the knowledge to the student in a finite amount of time. With the flipped classroom, students have direct access to the knowledge and the teacher saves as a coach and mentor. During live instruction, teachers are able to focus on the application of skills and dive deeper into the usage of these skills in a student’s performance.

Are the mini instructional videos part of the flipped classroom method?
Yes. This allows students to practice and prepare for their upcoming live class so that instructional time can be focused on the application of skills, peer interaction, creative collaboration, and critical thinking 

What are the benefits of a flipped classroom?
The flipped classroom method allows for self-made learning. Students can prepare for a class whenever they want and take any length of time to finish.  Parents can easily keep track of their child’s performance and have access to all of the learning materials. Hence, parents have the chance to participate and monitor the progress of their children.

Do parents need to help?
Yes and No. In the beginning, parents may need to assist their younger children with logging onto Zoom or downloading the 10 min instructional video for viewing. However, the course is designed to allow teachers to fully engage with their students on a one hour, weekly basis for optimal instruction and to give parents the opportunity to use that hour for themselves or focus on another task that needs attention. 


Will WeMusic offer more courses after this?
Yes! We are in the middle of designing more group classes for the summer. If you are looking to enroll your child in a specific area of music or have a suggestion that may be popular among your child’s peer group, please email academics@we-music.com with your suggestion. We are here to serve you and reimagine your child’s music experience!
