There are many online resources that have nominal licensing fees which offer excellent lessons that are well produced and keep students engaged. We also have friends and colleagues that freely share their lessons and we are humbled by these great teachers.
The things I feel I need to teach face to face are the technical aspects like foot placement, posture, instrument carriage,embouchure. Holding a flute is awkward for a beginner. Have you ever been asked any of these questions: "Where does my right thumb go on the clarinet?" "Why can't I wrap my pink on the nifty trumpet ring?" "Um...how many parts are on a bassoon?" These are all things we sometimes need to "manually" adjust on students.
One more thing, please. I'm also concerned "whom" I need to teach face to face. You know, the student you have to figure 10 different ways to explain before they get it. The kid with tiny hands so you have to find a smaller pair of drumsticks. The one who can't buzz on the trumpet and might be better suited for baritone.
Sorry for the long post. Thank you for your time. God speed, stay well, stick together.
