FAQ

Lessons

Can I have a guitar lesson anytime I want or is there a regularity required?


The student memberships are meant for students to have certain regularity with the coaching sessions. Besides this, you will be able to schedule your sessions as you find best (eg. you can have a Starter membership with 2 lessons per month and schedule each session 2 weeks apart or have 2 continuous hours once a month). If you wish to have one session only, you can book a Single lesson. This is a one time lesson with a one time payment, thus no recurrent payments. Just find what's your best tempo with your coaching sessions :)




Do I need to buy any book for the lessons?


No, you don't need to buy any music book. We will provide the students with all the digital scores, documents, exercisses needed and for free unless the student wishes to have the physical book for him/herself.




What do I need to start the lessons?


For getting started and book for your first lesson you only need to have a guitar, internet connection and lots of enthusiasm for learning and discover tones of new music!




Do I need to have my own Zoom account?


You don't need to have a zoom account. When your lesson is scheduled you will receive the link for joining the meeting and all you will need to add is your name and email before entering the meeting.




Do I need to download Zoom app?


It is not necessary to have the zoom app if you won't want to. You can always join from the browser but having the app on your device always gives you easier control with view modes and sharing functionality. We do recommend you to install the app for regular lessons.




Can I have the lesson from my cellphone?


You certainly can, but as we work with the sheet music, the size of a cellphone screen can become quite tiring for the student. We always recommend the student to have a comfortable setup, with the laptop or desktop computer and, if desired, you can always plug an extra display to your laptop/tablet so that you can see the sheet music and your coach in a comfortable size to work at your fullest potential.




What if I can't make it to session?


If you have booked a lesson but something comes along and you need to change it, you can always reschedule it if the session is programmed within 48h or more from the starting time. If the notice is given within less than 48h hours please contact us directly and we will do everything we can to reschedule your session within that same week.




Can I watch the replay of the lessons?


Yes! All the sessions are recorded to give the possibility to each student to order the recording of the session within 1month time. In the member area you will find the indications about how to ask for the replay. Once you send the request, we will edit and master the session so that you can get the best quality possible. Within 24h the replay will be up in your private student cloud, which you can access from your Student Folder account tab.




Do the lessons carry over to the next month?


The monthly sessions do not carry over the following month. Every new cycle your acount gets the new sessions but if you have sessions unnused they are deleted. What is possible to do is to schedule the sessions of the current month in the future (without limit). This way, if you are 2 or 3 weeks unavailable you don't lose your sessions as you can schedule them into the next months and find them back the session in 'My bookings' tab. Like this, even when the next month cycle starts, you can use and reschedule the sessions from the previous month as well as the new month.




How is this different from one to one online lessons?


In the MFA you've got a lot more aside than your one to one sessions with Merce. You get access to a large library of articles, scores, recordings and information carefully selected to support areas of your musicianship such as Music theory, performance practice, practice techniques and more. You also get for free Live Workshops twice per month and the possibility to watch all the past ones! All the scores and exercises are included for you to start practicing rightaway! And, on top of that, you also get to participate in our private concerts, as a listener and as a player (this is for all Patrons&Students) to get the real-live experience of playing for other people! Not many academies online offer this kind of community/studdent support nowadays, so if you are interested in such an intense and enriching experience, feel free to join us! We will be delighted to welcome you!




Can I add more sessions to my student membership?


Yes, you can always purchase single sessions anytime!





Memberships

Can I cancel my membership?


Yes, you can cancel your membership anytime you want and you are always welcome to come back when you are ready to join us again. You will find the option to cancel your membership under 'My Subscriptions' within your account.




What happens after I join?


Once you join, you will receive email communication from us regarding your sessions, account, resources and more. You will get immediate acces to our private community and you can start by saying 'Hi' in the Forum or going in deep dive with all our Workshop replays. There are lots of hours there for you to learn! :)




Is this right for all playing levels?


Yes it is! Whether you are starting from the begining or you are already an advanced player, the curriculum is personalized to every player and everybody is welcome to join! We are confident that you will benefit from our coaching sessions no matter what stage you are at!





Payment

When and how are the payments of the lessons done?


The student gets billed every month on the same day of inscrption. When the new cycle begins you get automatically the lessons in your account for you to schedule. The membership renews automatically until you cancel it.




Can I get a refund?


Due to the digital nature of the membership there are no refunds once you have enrolled. After completing the inscription, you are immediately given all the sessions available in your membership and you can schedule them anytime you want. If you don't want to renew to the next month, make sure you cancel the membership from your account, under 'My subscription' tab.
