Kids can now go to school in person because there are now vaccines and medicines against viruses. It is now safe to go to malls and play as long as the health protocol, social distancing, and face masks are implemented.

It is also the best time to enroll in in-school music lessons because there is a difference between in-person and online music lessons.

In-person lessons are better than online lessons

  • In-person lessons make the student learn effectively, according to Kentucky's research on online learning proved that online lessons have more distractions. Staying focused on online classes is a challenge. Separating home life and class time, not following a routine schedule, and the distractions at home, caused students not to be able to concentrate well with their classes. As a result, students tend to procrastinate and set things aside, then deadlines are missed. 

  • Sage Journal’s research on In-Person Learning shows that in-person students value “mattering” or giving importance to learning than other students who study online who give less mattering. In-person students have more compliance on submissions and are more eager to learn as they meet people physically and undistracted from online disturbances.
