Music Education Gets Flipped

Daniel Coyle, author of The Talent Code, is a fan of "Flipping the Classroom". According to Coyle's blog, Flipping the Classroom means sending students to pre-recorded learning material prior to consulting the teacher for individual advice. The role of the teacher evolves more of a coach, encouraging students to work though problem areas in order to progress.

Here at ArtistWorks, we flip the classroom for music education online. With our Video Exchange learning approach, your music teacher will not abandon you when you have questions.  As you go through the hundreds of lessons in the online curriculum, you'll come across areas where you teacher asks for you to demonstrate what's being taught.  You can then record a video of yourself playing and submit it to your teacher, who will review your video and send you a video response with advice on how to improve your playing. Through this interactive relationship made possible with ArtistWorks' Video Exchange Technology (patent pending), you can study from a master musician and become the player you deserve to be.
