Are online piano lessons right for you?
Whether you’re a seasoned pianist or a beginning student, it’s
important to know what resources are out there for you to use
to learn piano in a way that will fit in well with your lifestyle,
budget, and specific goals. In the past, the only way to learn
piano was to study with a teacher by traveling weekly to their
home or studio and then come home and practice what you
learned throughout the week until it was time to go to your
lesson again. Nowadays, quality piano lessons are available
online and provide a great alternative to the most traditional
way of learning. How do you know if this type of learning is right
for you? Read on to find the key benefits of taking online piano
lessons vs. in person lessons.
Take lessons from anywhere
One of the greatest benefits of online piano lessons is that you can study from
anywhere in the world and with anyone in the world. Since you aren’t traveling to
your lessons, you can set up your computer, laptop, or tablet to access your lessons
and assignments at the most convenient times for you. You’ll also have access to a
greater variety of teachers compared to just your local resources, which can give you
access to a much broader scope of approaches to learning the piano. You can study
your lessons while on break at work, or even on vacation.
Online piano lessons are cost effective if you're on a tight budget
More often than not, you can get a great deal on lesson packages from online
teachers that cost a good bit less than in-person lessons. Plus, you’ll be able to access
your lessons as many times as needed, as they will be in video format and you can
save them on your computer. Many online piano teachers offer a few free lessons to
get you started as well, and can provide you with several options in regards to what
type of lesson package will suit your budget and goals best.
Set your own pace in terms of reaching your goals
If your online piano teacher offers different lesson packages that you can purchase at
one time, you can access them when you have the time instead of having to show up
at a specific time each week for a lesson that you haven’t had time to prepare for.
This works especially well for those that travel a lot for work, those who are busy
parents, or for students that are cramming for exams and other school projects.
Access to great online learning tools and programs
Your online piano teacher already is savvy about using digital devices to teach lessons,
and they will also most likely use other software programs and educational websites
to supplement your piano studies. They will be able to recommend online sites that
help with learning music theory, rhythm, ear training, as well as programs that help
you learn notes, chord structures, and even composing your own music.
These are just a few of the great benefits of studying the piano online. This method of
learning is great for anyone that is busy with family or work, retired and looking for a
new hobby, wants to find the most cost effective way of learning, likes working at
their own pace, and is excited about using other online resources for furthering their
practice. Online piano lessons also make great gifts for anyone that wants to start
learning piano, or that wants to return to playing after years of not playing.

It's good to know that online piano lessons are more affordable, and I could access the teaching materials as many times as I want since it's a video format. My son has always wanted to learn how to play the piano in our living room. Perhaps I should enroll him in an online piano class soon, so he has something substantial to do during the quarantine. Thanks!

I found it beneficial when you said that online piano lessons are good for people that learn at their own pace. We want our son to start learning piano although we're afraid of him going to a stranger's for COVID. We'll have to find a good piano teacher that offers online lessons.

Shared! This is AWESOME stuff about online courses for beginners! Thank you!
I have two children who began live, online piano lessons at the beginning of the pandemic through www.LessonWithYou.com. I've been thrilled with their progress. They are different ages and temperaments, so they don't have the same instructor -- though you can have back to back live lessons through their program. Lesson With You matches each student to an instructor based on a variety of factors and it just made more sense for our kids to have different instructors. I completely underestimated how convenient it would be to take lessons from our home instead of driving through town and waiting while they complete the lessons. Both instructors have advanced degrees in piano performance from top US music schools and they both use a dual camera system so my kids can see their faces and hands on the piano. And at $25 for a half hour lesson, it's an amazing value.
I loved that you pointed out that going online child help you find lesson packages that could be a good deal. My 9-year old son has been really interested in learning piano, but my budget has always been restricted. For sure, I will find an online piano lesson that I can afford and won't require us to pay too many fees. Thanks!

I agree when you said that one of the greatest benefits of online piano lessons is that you can study from anywhere in the world. I really want to go to piano classes because I have been interested in playing the piano since I was young. Thanks for the information on piano lessons and I hope that I can find a great piano center soon.
