OKEMOS, Mich. — During this very difficult time many music schools have stopped offering music lessons.

Guitar Center suspended its music lesson program nationwide.

About two weeks ago the Okemos Music Academy took all of its students online for private lessons. But the school wanted to offer more to its students so it launched

an online music program with free classes / lessons for its students called “Cabin Fever Busters”.

How does it work?

For any student at the school taking weekly online lessons, they also get access to the Cabin Fever Buster group.

In that group there is daily online programming, all for free including:

Ukulele classes

Trivia tournaments

Young children music classes

Guitar lessons

Drum lessons

Violin lessons

Garage Band classes

Virtual choir (vocalists record their parts and the school edits them into one large video layering the audio).

Pro Tools classes

Rock band ’name that tune’ tournaments

Fiddle classes

Ear training

Piano classes

Rock band jams

And the list goes on as we’re still adding courses.

The cost for our students? All free.

How much free education resources are they getting? Almost 40 hours per month.

This is a great way for students to break ‘Cabin Fever’, try new instruments, expand their music abilities and the parents have been having a blast as well.

It also gives parents back much needed time as they have to adjust with having a house full of children who are ready to have their energy channeled in a positive and educational way.

The Okemos Music Academy has also taken this to the next level by partnering with over 50 music schools in the US and Canada to be part of the group and add content to the group.
