If you are mulling, whether to have your kids follow music courses online or offline, then you must read this article on why online music courses can be more beneficial than offline courses. 

This is not to say that there are no advantages to offline courses, and absolutely no drawbacks to online courses, but rather to say that online does win in many cases over offline and in this post I give you six really important reasons why. 

The first and the most obvious is that..


Online Courses Are Far Cheaper In The Long Run

Courses that are meant for an online audience, often have economies of scale on their side and therefore, can be sold at a much cheaper price than offline courses that require the presence of a teacher. 


Available On Demand

The fact that online courses are available at anytime and your child can learn early in the morning or late in the night, and the course itself never expires is another huge benefit. 

Besides the above, since the course is available 24/7, reviewing work and going over and over the same material does not cost anything extra. 

Which is not the case with offline courses and often the cost is paid up once and the the course is owned for life. 


The Entire Family Can Learn

With an offline music teacher, lessons have to be paid for based on the duration of the lesson and separate payments will be have to be made for each child. 

However, with an online music course, kids of different ages and even the parents can all learn for one price. 


Even More Savings

Usually online music courses provide all the materials such as printables, which means there are no expenses for purchasing books. 

Also since there is no need to travel to classes, there are significant cost savings on transportation costs like gas and vehicle wear and tear, plus less hassle when it comes to scheduling. 



This is another huge benefit of online music courses. 

For instance all the kids can take the same course, but can go at their own pace and learn at different times of the day when it is convenient for each of them, rather than being hauled around to the class at the teacher’s convenience. 



Yes, online music classes are fantastic for world travelling families, military families and even families that are into travelling cross country or going on extended vacations. 

Since the classes can be taken with you anywhere, learning can happen around the year, irrespective of circumstances, locations and situations.

My daughter loved the games, but there were also worksheets and videos. The weekly lesson plans were complete, and I never questioned what I should be doing next.

What are you waiting for?

This program reminded me (and allowed me to teach my son) how to read music. To me, that was the most important thing that we learned together. Of course, it was very rewarding for me to watch my son play the piano with both hands at the same time, while reading sheet music. His favorite parts of the course were actually playing the songs and doing the worksheets provided.
