ORLANDO, Fla., Jan. 24, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Live Music Tutor, (LMT) the world's first online music educational ecosystem and interactive platform for streaming music lessons between instructors and students, and The Renaissance Charter School at Chickasaw Trail, (CHIC) a member of Charter Schools USA launched a music program beginning with band instruments with virtual instructors on January 9, 2017.
This is a ground-breaking opportunity to provide an entire music program featuring band instruments to a beginners and advanced group of interested and excited students in grades K-8. The program is being led by a group of experienced LMT instructors that are beginning with the basics of reading music and other fundamentals and an onsite music instructor who is responsible for the classroom logistics and discipline. This joint program is off to a great start and a live performance is planned later in the school year for the students.
"We are providing master classes to the entire band and private lessons in the classroom to students who will need the extra attention. Our technology has taken distance learning to a new level and the quality of our live interactive service has opened the door to unlimited resources from around the world to the school. Cynthia Townsend, the principal, had a wonderful vision for her school and we are excited to be able to meet their needs," says Ted Gee, co-founder of LMT. "With the ESSA law that was passed in 2015 putting music back in schools as part of a well rounded education, we believe that we have a viable solution for all schools in need of a quality music program or to supplement the one that they have or even enhance their band, orchestra or choir."
"I am so pleased that our students have this opportunity to learn to play music by actually learning to read the musical notes. Our band program has been in existence for 4 years and we wanted to utilize an instructional tool that would continue to provide high expectations and challenge our students. This instructional program provides an affordable and great experience for our student that closes the digital gap by including a great music program as part of providing a well-rounded education. This musical experience is a great fit for our students in our learning community," says Cynthia Townsend Principal CHIC.
