About a month ago, the Knoxville Academy of Music took all of its students online for private lessons. But the school wanted to offer more to its students so it launched an online music program with free classes/lessons for its students called “Cabin Fever Busters.”


How does it work?

For any student at the school taking weekly online lessons, they also get access to the Cabin Fever Buster group.

In this group, there is daily online programming, all for free including:

  • Ukulele classes
  • Trivia tournaments
  • Young children music classes
  • Guitar lessons
  • Drum lessons
  • Violin lessons
  • Garage Band classes
  • Virtual choir (vocalists record their parts and the school edits them into one large video layering the audio).
  • Pro Tools classes
  • Rock band ’name that tune’ tournaments
  • Fiddle classes
  • Ear training
  • Piano classes
  • Rock band jams

And the list goes on as they are still adding courses.


The cost for students? All free.

How much free education resources are they getting? Almost 40 hours per month.

This is a great way for students to break ‘Cabin Fever’, try new instruments, expand their music abilities and the parents have been having a blast as well.

It also gives parents back much needed time as they have to adjust to having a house full of children who are ready to have their energy channeled in a positive and educational way.

The Knoxville Academy of Music has also taken this to the next level by partnering with over 50 music schools in the US and Canada to be part of the group and add content to the group.


About Knoxville Academy of Music

Knoxville Academy of Music is a division of Allied Music Instructors, which was established in 2004, and became an LLC in 2013. We teach hundreds of lessons each week. Our academy is a school of music first. We are not a piano store, dance studio, or an instrument retailer that has lessons as a side business. At Knoxville Academy of Music, providing you with a great music learning experience is our #1 priority.

We are the only music school in Knoxville that gives their students the opportunity to earn special color wristbands (kids and teens love them!), trophies, AND certificates for passing musical tests. Do other schools offer trophies and certificates? A few. But none of them inspire their students with smiling faces by giving them full color, really cool “Musical Ladder System®” wristbands that they can show off to their friends. The Musical Ladder is our unique method of music education that is not available anywhere else in Knoxville, TN. More importantly, when our students have a test coming up, they practice more, their parents are proud, their teachers are proud, and everybody wins. The Musical Ladder System® is not just for kids; adults benefit from the system too.
