Online Music Tutoring FAQs 

Why study music?

Music is an important part of our lives, and it has the power to do more than entertain. It can convey messages or emotions without words - from one culture in the world to another. Music also teaches students the values of art, what makes a good public performance, the value of dedication and practice. Of course, music also teaches both technical and creative skills.

The study of music can enrich a person's life in many ways. Not only does it teach individuals the importance of creativity, discipline, and collaboration on all levels, but it has also been scientifically proven to provide a number of cognitive and emotional benefits. It can reduce anxiety, make you happier, improve your memory, and much more. 

Studying music can broaden your perception of sound and deepen your knowledge of history. You can explore different cultures, instruments, composers, and time periods in depth. Studying music is more than just learning how to play tunes on an instrument. When you study music you also study music composition and music theory. There are different subjects based on different instruments such as guitar, piano, or flute music theory. Students learn how to read the language of music and compose their own notes.  

What university degree is music useful for?

If you have participated in music lessons at your school or are familiar with different musical instruments, then your interest in music can be very useful for college degrees such as BA /BS in Music, B.A. (Hons) Sound Arts, B.A. Music Production or B.M. in Music, Symphony Orchestra Instrument.

A Bachelor of Arts in Music is the standard course of study for those who have no prior knowledge of music theory or music reading, but wish to develop their knowledge in these two areas. If you want to learn more, you can also pursue a master's degree in music.

What careers can studying music lead to?

Music degrees can lead to a variety of fields and careers. Students with musical skills have the potential to enjoy fulfilling careers and earn great money writing, composing, performing, or teaching songs. Music graduates often find employment as music teachers. 

Music graduates who want to teach music in elementary or secondary schools must complete a master's degree program in music education, which usually takes two years and includes both general education subjects and specialized training in teaching. Of course, many music graduates also go in the other direction and try to earn a living from making music by touring, selling albums and merchandise.

How expert music tutoring can help you

Teachers will take the time to assess your starting point then develop a personalised syllabus to work towards your objectives. Online classes will focus on your areas of weakness and on developing the confidence you need to achieve your goals. Lessons will also push students in areas that they are already comfortable in, encouraging constant improvement and developing positive learning habits.

Spires has a number of experienced tutors that can teach you everything about understanding composition, music theory, songwriting, reading music, and more. Our music teachers can even help you develop your own music. Whether it’s the violin, piano, guitar, or even if you’re looking for flute music theory! Just specify your needs to your tutor by booking an online session with your teacher through the Spires website. These teachers will guide you through the meticulous process of learning the secrets of composition and music theory. 

The pandemic has made traveling to classes much more difficult for students across the UK. With frequent lockdowns in major cities like London, Birmingham, and Liverpool many students have had to halt their music classes for more than a year. But it doesn’t have to be that way. With Spires’ online tutors you can study from the comfort of your home. It doesn’t matter if your tutor is miles away while you’re sitting at home. Just search through the listings of tutors available to find the one most suited to you and reach out to the teachers with any queries you may have. These tutors will give you guided lessons online that won’t feel any different from physical classes.
