During the last three years, a lot of us have had the (forced!) opportunity to learn quite a lot about those pros and cons, from personal experience! At this point, a lot of people went from in-person to online, and back to in-person. Or maybe they stayed online because it worked better. Or...you name it!
So I thought I'd just throw out the obvious question: which do you like more, in-person or online learning? And this question can apply to students, parents and teachers.
Note: I'm not asking you which works better, I'm asking you which you happen to like better. If you live in a remote area, you may like online learning better because it allows you to take more lessons from a teacher of your choice, without the long commute. Or even if you live in a larger metropolitan area, you can take lessons from a teacher across town, without having to spend hours in traffic.
On the other hand, maybe you have found, after this time, that being there in person is very valuable for correcting positioning, being able to play together and play duets, for direct communication and various other reasons.
So please participate in the vote, and then share your thoughts. Which do you like better, and why? Do you feel you have a choice in the matter? If you have experienced both ways, what observations do you have about the differences? And here is where you can tell us about what you feel works better for you, as either a student or teacher.
