In the past year, all our businesses were, and are still affected by the Pandemic. Some more, some less. In my opinion, the music industry is one of the industries that was hit extremely hard. Not only concerts were cancelled, but music lessons as well. Especially lessons for kids. Some were held online, and the older kids I think managed that relatively well, but imagine how hard it is for the little ones. And how demanding that is for their parents. Many quit because of that pressure, and many from financial reasons, which is incredibly sad for both, teachers, and students, but is understandable. I’m hoping very soon here in Scotland when everything will start reopening indoors, music lessons will resume to some kind of normality.
The lovely lady in the photo is Roxana Nite. She is a Soprano Singer, a Music Teacher and the founder of the Clyde Opera Group in Glasgow that promotes young singers at the beginning of their careers. In the past year, she managed her lessons online and even in these difficult times some of the students participated in international competitions and got amazing results. Alongside the teaching, she has lined up a few new projects as well for Clyde Opera, for whenever they will reopen the doors again and I can’t wait to see what she has created.
