Template Letter to send to Parents

Dear (Parent),

I am very excited to share with you the new platform we will be using this year for (your student’s) online piano lessons. It’s called Musicology and it’s an interactive video conferencing platform built specifically for music lessons (this means high quality audio/video that doesn’t cut out.) There are a ton of teaching tools included that I know (your student) will love and that really enhance the online learning experience.

Here is a link to their website for your information: www.musicology.ca

At our next scheduled lesson, please follow these directions. They are the same for each lesson.

If you are on an iPad or iPhone:

  • Make sure your device is updated to at least iOS14
  • Download Musicology Online from the App Store (there is no fee!)
  • Press I’m a Student
  • Enter code ___________

If you are on any other device (Windows, Apple, Android/laptop, phone, desktop, tablet):

Looking forward to seeing you next time!

Your teacher
