This weekend I attended a lecture by a panel of three trombone professors.

Someone in the audience asked a question about Skype. One person said he had never tried it and had no need, given his clientele. Another said she hadn't used it yet but saw the potential and was going to start. She teaches in Montana where the distances are long and the population sparse. The third person is at a university down South who said he uses it heavily for three reasons: he can bring in a guest artist with less expense and inconvenience; he can continue to give lessons when he's traveling, and he's on the road performing a lot; he can work in a student who's on the road taking an audition or has a sudden problem.

So, let us take example from the smartest one!

Mr. Dounin,
Would you not prefer to establish your own website where you could be the ultimate authority?

Some of my supporters has opened something like this for me on Russian server Yandex.ru vk.com/@vladimirdunin-besplatnye-uroki-muzyki-po-internetu (FREE music lessons on line).

However people know for sure that 2 X 2 makes 5 and only 5. Therefore they are not interested to listen to dissidents with crazy idea that 2 x 2 can make 4 as well. Unless ALL TV and newspapers will confirm this fact.

Mr Dounin.

The link you provided does not work.

However, I think your assumption is wrong that people are not interested to listen to dissidents with crazy ideas. I think that most people are quite happy and comfortable to have a music tutor sitting right there with them - a real presence if you like. So why would they disrupt all that by venturing to try something different? If they are having quality teaching in the home or at school?

The link worked fine for me, albeit in Russian.

Not for me. Did you copy the whole of the address?

There are no crazy ideas, and there is no 2+2=5. I have seen two main ideas. One is that music in 4/4 time should not always stress the 1st and 3rd beat, and in the same vein, we shape our music through various forms of emphasis and refraining thereof. The other is that teaching can be done remotely. The first idea is standard, not unusual, and the second is already being done, including by teachers in this forum.

The link doesn't work for me either. However, I think that by googling the OP's name you will run into that site. I seem to remember having done so.
