Teaching Guitar in the Internet Age Outline

Starting, or building, a guitar teaching studio in the 21st century can be tough. But, with the advent of social networking, affordable web hosting, Smartphone and Tablet platforms and high-speed internet, guitar education is moving into the online and virtual realm as musicians teach Skype lessons, launch teaching websites, and create interactive educational apps.

By exploring distance-learning concepts for guitar education, one can open up their studio to a global market, while allowing one to focus on a particular genre or style of musical education at the same time.

This workshop will explore the technological and pedagogical items that are required to run an online guitar studio in the internet age.
