I am interested in talking to anyone who has been successful at teaching online. This is new to me, but I would like to understand some of the mechanics of teaching this way. How do you get music to your students so they can practice, and take the online lesson?

Hi perfectmusicman!

The best way to send sheet music and other printed lesson materials to students you are teaching remotely is to email them PDFs or other files.

If you have a scanner, you can most likely scan music into your computer as a PDF and email it to students. Also, some online sheet music retailers allow you to purchase PDF versions of regular printed music, saving you the step of scanning.

Lesson Maestro's upcoming Studio Management Tools will also allow you to upload PDFs to the site. Your students can register on Lesson Maestro and then download whichever files they need.

I hope this helps. If anyone else wants to chime in about this topic, please do.

I'll be very interested to learn more about the upcoming Studio Management tools. I agree that email is generally best. However, another great resource is some sort of blog (blogger or wordpress) or even a Facebook page where you can upload files and recordings for students to view and listen to.

But then again, I'm guessing these new tools from LessonMaestro might have some of these features?
