Project Based Learning Electives provided by the Berrien Springs Virtual Academy
Independent Music Study Lessons: Other Instruments
Students and teachers must be able to readily switch to online lessons at any point in the semester in order to register for classes.
Students are required to keep track of their weekly practice times and communicate those minutes with their music teacher.
All students are required to do a project for this class. Speak with your mentor for instructions.
Most music teachers are planning on doing in-person lessons unless the State of Michigan places restrictions, in which case lessons must then continue online. Some teachers may only be offering online lessons. Be sure to clarify the current format when you sign up with your teacher before any lessons begin.
The Partnership covers only one Independent Music Study lesson per week for Kindergarten through 12th grade, up to our maximum weekly allowance. Students in grades 6-12 may take an additional group music class. Discuss fees with your chosen teacher before lessons begin; any amount charged above our allowance of $25 per 30 minute lesson is the responsibility of the family.
***Music teachers who teach Partnership students BEFORE being approved by the Partnership will not be paid for their efforts.
