WhiteHat Jr. to launch online music classes in India
Not just coding but WhiteHat Jr. is all set to include online music classes as part of their creative curriculum. After empowering millions of students in learning the fundamentals of coding globally. The live coding provider White Hat Jr. introduces the same kind of expertise and includes personalized attention for delivering music classes online. Starting with piano and guitar.
Talking to IANS, the Founder and CEO Karan Bajaj said, “The music classes are currently in the beta phase and the initial feedback has been incredibly positive. We plan to offer music trial classes starting May 28th, 2021 on an invitation basis only and then launch it commercially in the US and India in June after incorporating feedback from beta testing. The music curriculum will then be progressively extended to other international markets.”
The main motive is to equip kids with both academic and cognitive development, by staying at home during the pandemic. We want to give the same access and freedom for learning music as for creating their digital products.
Bajaj states, “Kids will learn music by creating their signature tunes, compositions, and albums. It is important to note that no large-scale player has attempted to create their music curriculum. We see this as a huge opportunity to set the benchmark for online music learning,”
There will be an introductory ‘Discovery’ package of four classes for parents to understand and develop the idea of their child’s interest in music.
Teachers for the online music classes have been selected thoroughly based on their performance in five important aspects – aural, improvisation, sight-reading, music theory, and performance.
“We are in talks with a top global music institute to introduce certification for our students, but our inherent belief is that the confidence from live performances and creating their own compositions along with the transformational impact of music will far outweigh any potential benefits a certificate might provide,” Bajaj told IANS
“From academic development to a transformation in self-esteem, learning to create music fundamentally transforms a child’s life. Studies show a remarkable increase in important character traits like grit, confidence, and willingness to undertake creative pursuits after students take up music training,” said Bajaj. He is excited about this new venture and the major accessibility of piano and guitar to children across India.
