Virtual Piano Lessons Description

Students receive piano lesson videos each week that will teach the new material and song(s) to practice.  Every other week students will have a 20 minute Zoom private lesson.  During the Zoom lessons, the student will play the songs assigned from the video lesson and I will make any necessary corrections.  The student also has the opportunity to ask me questions they may have about the new songs or techniques they are working on.

 

Attendance and Make-ups

It is important that students spend time watching their video lesson each week and that they attend their bi-weekly Zoom lesson at their scheduled time.  This will insure they learn at an appropriate pace.  

If a student will not be able to attend a Zoom lesson and you can inform me withing 5 days of the lesson I will do my best to reschedule to a different day or time.

Practicing

The most important part of any music class is practice!  That's why I strongly advise every student to practice at least 5 days per week.  

All students need a keyboard or piano to practice on.  Keyboards are fine for the first year of piano, but it is strongly advised to upgrade to a digital or acoustic piano some time in the second year of piano.  By this time, students need the weight of piano keys to allow their fingers to strengthen properly.  The main difference between a keyboard and digital piano is that a digital piano has weighted keys with a similar feel to an acoustic piano.
