The ipassio Edge

Students enrolling for this course on ipassio can be sure that they receive individual attention from the teacher, as the class strength is limited to 1 or 2 students. It also gives teachers the opportunity, to gauge their student's progress in-depth and make changes whenever and wherever required, to ensure the student gets the maximum out of this course. Since this course is detailed, students get the advantage of learning intricate details about Mallet Instruments. The limited strength of the class also ensures that there is a strong bond between the students and their teacher clearing out any inhibitions that the student might have. The sustained guidance available from the teacher ensures that the student does not deviate from set goals or targets. Learning from a revered, experienced exponent of Mallet Instruments, through the long duration of this course, keeps the student inspired and motivated to achieve more.

Course Specific Benefits

The student will have experience in how to voice chords on the piano, jazz arranging, jazz improvisation, blues and popular music. It will give the student a good background in traditional, modern and progressive styles of music. This course focuses on direct 1-on-1 instruction between teacher and student. In a virtual classroom setting, students can expect a higher level of rigor and more attention to detail.
