HOW IT WORKS
Go to Online Academy and select Pricing. It will appear on this screen below and from there you can choose the study plan that fits you the most.
After creating your member account you will complete the payment of your membership and gain access to all the features of MFA! Don't worry, you will not be tied to any particular duration, you can cancel anytime you need!
After you select your desired plan it will prompt you to create an account. You can log in with your email or use your social media accounts like Facebook or Google.
Welcome to the MFA! Now you can enter the exclusive Member Area and book your lessons from there. All your booking will appear in 'My bookings' on your account as well as a lot more features!
And what happens after that?
After booking your lesson a personal link will be added to the calendar event you created when you made the reservation. This is our personal virtual meeting room where the lesson is going to take place. So before the lesson, all you need to do is access the link!
accessing our Personal Virtual Meeting Room
When you click on the link a browser window to Zoom will open. Talking about convenient, you can decide to download Zoom software or not. I personally like to use it, but if you don't want to stuff your computer with more programs, just click on the 'start from your browser' button and a window with our online lesson will open!
HD Video and Audio
Exceptional clarity and quality for virtual and hybrid classes.
Security and compliance
Zoom enables FERPA/HIPAA compliance and provides end-to-end 256-bit encryption.
enhanced collaboration features
One-click content sharing, real-time
co-annotation, and digital whiteboarding.
Can I have a guitar lesson anytime I want or is there a regularity required?
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Can I add more sessions to my student membership?
Yes, you can always purchase single sessions anytime!
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.
What happens after I join?
Once you join, you will receive email communication from us regarding your sessions, account, resources and more.
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!
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.
