Do you realize we have passed through half of the year 2020 and It has been more than 3 months children are confined to homes?
Yes, we have!
By now we all know Schools/ Tuition, classes are not going to open anytime soon due to pandemic, and children should not suffer in terms of learning. During the initial months of COVID19, everything changed for each one of us, we tried different ways to cope with the situation, and tried keeping children occupied with multiple things like drawing, learning dancing, etc of their own with a hope that it will go within weeks, etc.
But unfortunately, we are still in this phase. So we need to come up with a better learning process – Online Courses/Classes and skills apart from their regular academic curriculum so that they can be fruitful for children in terms of adding value in their knowledge.
Our children live in the digital world. Using gadgets, technology-related games, apps makes them happy and we can encourage them to use the same thing for availing the learning new skills by online classes.
Before I suggest some courses to the parents out there, let me guide you on why you should enroll your kids for online classes.
1. Multiple Options To Choose
When it comes to choosing online classes, we are overwhelmed by multiple options. Choose the one which you find best, do a little survey, check the authentication, check the tutor/seller/platform which suits your budget as well.

The students can choose for themselves to get trained in playing like guitar, Piano, Tabla, flute, drums, Violin, and much more. They can learn the vocal and dancing of classical and western forms.
