online music & art lessons for kids aged 4-14
QuaranTunes aims to create a community of musicians who share their skills and passions with aspiring musicians around the world. While our lessons are targeted at children ages 4-14, we also offer masterclasses taught by world-renowned professionals that are open to anyone. Our teachers are volunteers and all of our classes are free. However, we encourage a donation to our charitable cause in return for our services. We believe in the power of music to connect and bring joy to people around the world, especially in these hard times.

Back in the Rhythm
At some time, summer had to end. As well as online school. Students grudgingly filed back into school for the taste of their first in-person class experience in over a year. Though many students dread the idea of going back to school, many are thrilled to start learning in-person. Even though most students find it easier to learn in person, online schooling did have its benefits. As a QuaranTunes piano teacher myself, doing school online saves much more time; there was no need to wait in the long traffic lines, navigate through crowds, and lug heavy backpacks from one place to another. Now that everyone is back in person at school, times get a little more complicated as extracurriculars and homework start to pile up, leaving limited time for teaching or learning music. However, all challenges can be overcome through perseverance and effective time management.

Mahi Patil, Vocal Head Teacher
Freshman at Vanderbilt University
I’ve been singing since I was about four years old and it’s a huge part of my life. It’s my biggest passion and the most expressive outlet for my emotions. QuaranTunes has given me the opportunity to share my love for music with others. It is the most wonderful feeling to be able to help someone else discover their own unique sound. Not only is teaching through QuaranTunes making me a better musician, but also a better person. I’m able to understand the needs of my students and challenges they face much more thoroughly. My interactions with my students are easily the best part of my day. I think becoming a vocal teacher for QuaranTunes is one of the best decisions I’ve ever made.
QuaranTunes was an organization that I never thought I would be part of because I had never taught art online before. But as a teacher I was blown away by how attentive, engaged, and wonderful the kids were, especially considering the classes weren’t in person. It was a real blast to work with all the kids I taught and see them create such beautiful paintings. They gave my summer much more meaning. My brother was a student in my class as well and seeing him grow as an artist really made both of us happy. I don’t think I would have thought about teaching him if it hadn’t been for QuaranTunes. Above all I was so grateful to be given a chance to share my love for surrealism with others. Being a part of the QuaranTunes team really brightened my life and I wouldn’t trade my time as a teacher for anything.
