Interactive Online Music Teaching

Through the Collabra Music Platform – How to make online teaching easy

Cicerone is the official promotional partner for Collabra Music, a company which has developed music software and an interactive platform for music teaching. Collabra basically helps music instructors and students to get more out of their lessons with tools that reinforce the lesson and make sure students practice. The track progress between the student and instructor becomes very easy. The provided tools allow to reinforce the lesson, capture progress and create accountability. – all in one system, all in one place.

Instructors record in-person lessons with the student(s) or create a pre-recorded series of instructional videos to share later. Students watch the lesson back from their phone or computer and then record themselves practising. Student practice minutes are automatically logged and reviewable by the instructor, providing a unique tool for accountability when needed.

Instructors and students exchange time-stamped comments on audio/video recordings of lessons and practices. This enables instructors to remotely review and correct student practice habits, as well as to stay connected during the week or when distance creates a barrier.
