One of my daughters works with Daria for weekly clarinet lessons. Another of my daughters works with Elham for weekly piano lessons and Sarah for weekly violin lessons.
(We have our own instruments).
--Classes via zoom. So, we can technically log in from anywhere.
--Classes can be recorded for replay and/or safety monitoring.
--Easy pay using Paypal.
--LOVE the google calendar reminder with the zoom ID, teacher's email and phone #s, etc.
--My daughters and I are happy with the classes. --As good as (if not better than) in-person classes, in my opinion. --Fits our schedule, which was often difficult for us with in-person classes. We do evening classes.
--The teachers provide a weekly class recap and assignment/plan for next class.
--Easy access to recap and assignments (Google Drive). --I can easily reach the teachers by text/call and email.
--Chris, who runs the program, is also very responsive. I initially contacted him at different times of the day with questions (even late night/overnight/early morning) and he responded very quickly.
--There have been a few small issues causing delay to class start times (one need for class reschedule) but we have no problems with the classes and teachers themselves.
--We do not plan on returning to in-person classes.
Clarinet, Piano, and Violin Lessons

All Around Music has surpassed my expectations so far. I'm very pleased with the entire process, especially my lessons. I would give my highest recommendation to anyone desiring music lessons online.
Mount Holly, New Jersey
Christopher and Daria have been wonderful. They are willing to work around life's emergencies, and Christopher has been very generous with his time. Daria's attitude about the lessons has been great! She hasn't passed any judgments about my juvenile taste in music.
The experience has been wonderful so far. My daughter is receiving virtual clarinet lessons, and the first lesson went well. I am hopeful everything will continue moving in a positive manner. The turnaround time from my initial request to the response from this organization was very prompt. Scheduling or booking classes for my daughter was very easy. The prices are both competitive and affordable. The staffers were very receptive and friendly. Overall, this has been a pleasant experience. I will provide updates as we continue.
This place is amazing! My 7-year old has been taking singing lessons online for half a year now and we are very satisfied with the quality of instruction. My son’s technique has improved tremendously and he is able to master challenging songs that he couldn’t before. His teacher, Morgan is absolutely wonderful. She is extremely professional, knowledgeable, and patient with my son. She is also able to keep him on track and his mind stimulated. We are very happy with our experience and highly recommend this place.
