The Shine School of Music employs outstanding teachers each with a diverse repertoire of specialties. At Shine, we understand that each student is an individual with distinct musical needs and preferences and the school aims to place the student with the teacher best suited for his/her specific needs and objectives. Classes are personalized within the syllabus of the chosen style to suit each individual student.

You can study one-on-one and develop your skills at your own pace, under the direction of a professional.

Online lessons allow for even more flexibility as students and teachers alike can save on time getting to and from lessons. Learning in familiar environments makes concentration and security easier by being familiar with the space. In many cases it also reduces distractions. Music students with little free time to go to a school to learn an instrument, or those who cannot leave home, having classes online means that they do not miss the moment saved for oneself in the whirlwind of everyday life.

Inconceivable just a few years ago, private online music lessons are becoming an increasingly commonplace practice here at Shine as an ever-growing number of our students are actively taking advantage of continued music education across the globe with our online lessons in our Spanish Music School in Barcelona. As Internet speeds continue to improve and video conferencing technologies become more accessible, it is becoming ever-easier to communicate over large distances, and the proportion of students choosing to attend music classes over web cam continues to grow.

Over the years Estudio Shine in Barcelona and the Shine School of Music Johannesburg have been instrumental in modernising teaching methods and promoting the use of telecommunication technologies in the classroom. Connecting our two branches via online classrooms gives our students access to many more instruments and teachers. Shine School of Music was one of the first institutions in the world to start teaching music in one-on-one live lessons via webcam in 2009 and, since then, the innovation has been well received while we ensured that the medium functioned smoothly and the demand for music classes online continued to grow world-wide. Currently, we impart lessons throughout a number of European, North American, South American and African countries and, we hope to continue bringing music into the homes of students around the world.

Many are the paths that lead our students to Shine School of Music and everybody comes looking for something different. Over the years we have helped thousands of our students reach their goals in music, whether it was to pursue a formal music education, follow a professional music career, or learn a few chords to sing to.
