There has been an upsurge of online piano courses available in the last few years. This were unheard of at first and many people thought that without a teacher, learning piano or keyboards online would be very difficult. However, things have changed and now there are teachers who have made special videos and prepared special books for beginners to play the piano so that they can now teach the basics themselves without the hassle of going to a professional piano instructor for daily lessons. I need to stress here that these online lessons are usually only suitable for those who are starting out and who need to find out whether or not piano playing is really for them. If you have reached a certain level, as opposed to a virtual one, you really need to take lessons with a real piano teacher. Checkout The Leopold School of Voice and Piano – Tampa piano lessons.
Here are a couple of the benefits for the beginner of online piano lessons as opposed to conventional one on one lessons;
The first and perhaps most relevant benefit to consider is that of cost. For a whole course of lessons, online lessons would usually cost right around the $50 mark, which will probably take you about a year to get you to a reasonably high intermediate level of play. You would barely be able to attend two lessons with a regular teacher for this sort of income.
The time is another plus factor. After travelling to their house or workshop, waiting around, taking the lesson and then heading back to your home, a one-hour piano lesson with a teacher can easily take two hours or more. The best part of an afternoon or evening can be consumed, leaving no time for anything else. However, with online courses, you can cram into classes whenever you have a spare moment… No standing about or waiting and no flying.
As with getting a piano teacher, there is no commitment to online piano lessons except for the commitment you make to yourself to excel in your piano learning.
A very important point to make here is that if you feel you are doing well, or take the same lesson over and over again if necessary, you can progress at your own pace, even skip lessons. In comparison to the piano instructor where you might be taught how to play something and then have to remember it before the next lesson, you may watch the videos of how something should be played and listen to how it should sound on demand. For an actual piano instructor, there is no rewind and repeat.
