What To Expect With Online Piano Lessons
When you are taking a piano lesson over the internet. We will be using either our phones or our computers. During the lesson, we will both take turns playing the piano. I'll be able to listen to you and also show you examples from my piano.
You can use a real piano or an electronic keyboard. We'll just need to make sure you have a way to prop up your phone or computer in a way that is easy for us to see each other and the keyboard at the same time. Tripods come in handy during online piano lessons.
We'll both benefit from being able to see the keys and I'll want to keep an eye on your form. But all of this is possible and something I do on a regular basis with students around the state.
Getting Ready For Your Online Piano Lesson
Before our first lesson together, we'll talk on the phone to discuss your interest in playing the piano. We'll discuss what type of music you want to play and I'll put together an idea of what your skill level is.
No matter if you are a beginner or have some experience, a child or an adult, I have a course that I can take you on to improve or fine-tune your skill set.
Once we start our first lesson together, I'll be giving you input on everything from your form to music theory and performance protocol.
You'll be playing scales, and chords, and learning to read music in no time!
If you're struggling with learning how to play the piano, don't worry - you're not alone.
Here are a few tips that may help:
1. Make sure you're practicing regularly. If you only practice once a week, it's going to be much harder to improve than if you practice every day.
2. Use a metronome. This will help you keep a steady tempo and rhythm while you're playing.
4. Listen to music. A lot of times, it can be helpful to listen to music that you enjoy to get inspired and motivated.
Learning the piano can be a fun and rewarding experience. I'm looking forward to meeting you and beginning this journey together.
