The experience of learning online becomes interactive and personalized when you join as a monthly member. Members login to an extended dashboard that includes direct instructor messaging. Members can enroll in any (or all) video courses, track their progress and even take notes in their lessons with the members-only contextual notepad feature.
Online courses are organized into topics (guitar, ableton, etc.). Each topic will display an fresh, customized display for monthly members. This custom display is called the Topic Studio. Members can see at a glance all the learning materials within that topic. This includes courses they can enroll in and curated reading. The Topic Studio makes it easier for members to navigate and discover content on Music Protest.
Monthly members are eligible to enroll in any course they want (or all courses!). This includes all topics, so it’s great for students who have multiple interests (say music theory and guitar). When you become a member, you’ll be able to enroll in all the courses you find interesting and get started – all enrollment fees are included in your membership.
The Topic Studio (for each category) will showcase articles that are recommended to students. These articles may be written for Music Protest or they may be on another site. There are a lot of great resources (and a lot of awful ones) online. Curated Reading represents a high-quality collection that has already been vetted and collected for students within a topic.
Music Protest’s online lessons are all based on live, one-on-one lessons. But, online learning can be limited if your never able to interface directly with your teacher. So, Music Protest enables private, direct communication between students and their instructor using messaging. New message threads can be started by either students or instructors at any time. Students can upload files to share (for advise or evaluation) and totally private – only you (and the instructor) can see your messages.
Whenever a new monthly member joins Music Protest, they’ll get a welcome email. The next step from there is to get help from the instructor with a personalized course/lesson plan. This means that once you become a member, you’ll have personal support in figuring out where to go and what to do in order to get the most out of your membership!
Music Protest’s video lessons are designed to facilitate learning. Lesson notes are another way that students can track their progress and meet their goals. From within any video lesson, members will be able to type and save notes. The lesson automatically relates those notes to the lesson being watched. Students can make as many notes as they want and they’ll always stay organized and easy to find. When members return to a video lesson, they’ll see their notes right there waiting for them!
