Who are we?
Hi, you might have heard of us before. Normally we're called Junior Rockers. For nearly 20 years we have been running music lessons in primary schools all across Victoria. That all changed when the COVID-19 pandemic struck. The schools we normally call home are being forced to close or are not allowing anyone but students and classroom teachers on the grounds. We're a small team of 35 teachers and 3 administration staff members. It's a bit of a scary prospect for us all because if the schools all close for an extended period, our livelihoods stop too. But we're not sitting on our hands feeling sorry for ourselves. There's a lot of people around the world who are in really tough situations and we want to be proactive and help in any way we can. With the prospect of a lot of children having to stay at home and parents looking for ways to keep their education moving, we think that's one area we can be useful. We are all experienced teachers and musicians who have a lot to offer. On a "normal" day we would be in a school teaching young students. We've never done any online lessons before and like so many other businesses in the world at the moment, we're trying to figure out how to make what we do work from a distance.
- We're really good at scheduling lots of student's lessons at times that suit.
- We're really good at creating engaging content that keeps students motivated and interested.
- We're going to learn how to make a Skype call so we can do that directly to you at home.
If you have students at home and you would like them to continue their music lessons, we've got this! We're going to take our usual process for running music lessons and take it on line. Here's what the process looks like:
- We take enrolments though our website.
- We match you up with a teacher who suits your student's ability level and interests and your availability. (If you are a regular Junior Rockers student, we would aim to keep you with your regular teacher)
- We start running weekly lessons via video call with the teacher.
If this all goes well, we would love to run virtual concerts where students would get the chance to perform for each other. We don't know how far into the future to plan at the moment, so right now we're just doing the best we can every day.
There's going to be some things we don't get right first time around. This is all new and scary. But we'll keep learning and improving and at the end of this we're all going to be able to look back and know that we did the best we could in a tough situation. Hopefully our lessons will improve someone's day who was feeling cabin fever. Hopefully they'll help people to keep a sense of social connectedness while we're all physically distant.
