What is the Student Lesson Journal? How do I use it?

Your Student Lesson Journal is a place where you can easily access any notes or lesson materials you and your teacher shared during your lesson, as well as videos your teacher recorded during your one-on-one lessons.  The Journal was designed for:

  • Music students who want to review their performance, track their progress, or just document sweet riffs;
  • Language students who want to look back at their lessons during review sessions, or practice copying their teacher's perfect pronunciation;
  • Computer skills students who want to review the steps their teacher went through on programs like Photoshop, ProTools, or Dreamweaver;
  • Any other students who like to keep track of their improvements as they study!
