Music Lessons & Homeschool Studio Information
The more students’ practice, the better they play, and the longer they stick with it to feel that incredible joy of creating music!!
Teachers upload recordings and/or videos for students to be able to listen to or watch before playing each assignment, giving them a better idea of how it should sound when it is correct, thus aiding in learning and challenging the student with each practice.
All assignments are entered into whichever platform the student uses for practice, and students have the ability to chat directly with your teacher!
Many assignments also have an audio or video uploaded to help the student learn the assignment correctly. What a difference this makes for our students! :)
Parents can log in and see your child's progress and practice records anytime.
Your teacher will set up your account if you use Tonara, and all students must create an account with Muzie to attend classes.
Tonara must be downloaded on a smartphone or tablet.
Tonara has worked hard to create features and benefits for students that makes practicing more engaging, interactive and fun! Students earn points every time you practice, and with each assignment completion you get XP, stickers in chat, and level up! :)
Students see their own growth and progression with statistics and all the fun rewards that they receive as they practice more and complete more assignments.
We have leaderboards not only for the studio, but also for adults, teens, children, & classes! We also have buddy chats set up for practice challenges & interaction, building & continuing relationships with other students!
All students use Muzie for attending clcasses, and some use it for daily practice as well. The above video shows you how to create your account.
Anytime, Anywhere, Any Device
You can access Muzie on any device with a modern browse (Google Chrome works best, iPad/iPhone requires app download).
Your student account consists of the “Practice Room” you have heard so much about by now. In the practice room, you will find your Practice Timer, Lesson Recordings, Live Chat, Metronome, Chord Scale and Arpeggio Reference Guide, Audio/Video recordings shared, files shared, whiteboards from your classes, and the Audio/Video Recorder.
This is also where they can see their scheduled lessons, a countdown until their next class and join their class!
Our teacher codes:
In 1989 Malena started teaching piano and tutoring in French and other subjects, and Malena's Music Lessons was born!
She continued to teach music as a hobby until 2018, when she realized that there are few teachers in the local area who can effectively work with people who have disabilities, and this could be something to really bless the community!
In January, 2019 Malena and Malena's Music Lessons moved to Limerick, Maine, establishing a music studio & functional waiting room and truly becoming part of the local community. Early 2020 saw the transformation to Malena's Music Lessons & More, offering more homeschool & life enrichment classes!
We are a small in-home studio. 2 attached side rooms in the apartment are the studio and waiting room. If you're not comfortable with an in-home studio, please request online lessons. :)
Who's the cat? Baby Girl is our studio mascot! If you're allergic to cats, we 'd be happy to provide online lessons for you. :)
We believe strongly that everyone should be able to learn and grow, regardless of ability or disability. We have extensive experience working with children and adults with learning disabilities, developmental or intellectual disabilities (including Autism), anxiety, trauma, and physical deformities.
We now offer music lessons, homeschooling, & life enrichment classes! Whether you're a just a beginner or an advanced student needing guidance in a particular area, let's explore learning opportunities together! :)
