Join NOW! Silva Music Students, Members-Only Social / Learning Website, silvamusicgroup.com (Click on Image Below)
Our new, interactive website has been in the development stage for 2 years and now we are up and running with our students and teachers. You may register as a student and parents may register as themselves. It’s a social and learning site designed just for our studios and is members only so this is safe from the public eye. Watch instructional videos, share media, general news feeds, forums, courses and more within our members-only community. We will post in-house announcements, documents and answer any questions so that everyone can be informed. This is the place where you can ask questions about your repertoire, practice assignments, exercises and get answers from the instructors in between lessons and during breaks. We are building the Book 1 and Book 2 courses and beyond in the LMS possibilities of this platform.
All students and parents in our studios SIGN UP NOW! We encourage all of you to be engaged, add suggestions, create your own support groups. The possibilities are almost endless. (Technical note: your confirmation code might be sent to your junk mail when you Create an Account, so please check.) We look forward to seeing you on our private platform! Click on the image below to reach the “Sign in/ Create an Account” page. If you have any problems signing up, please email Mrs. Silva.
