Study with our world-class teachers from the comfort of your own home, wherever you live.
No need to spend time and money commuting, just switch on your computer and start learning.
This can help you to practise efficiently at home, to review a difficult concept, or even your entire lesson.
Play your own piano and use your own piano stool. Stay comfortable, relaxed, and just focus on the music.
The ability to study piano from anywhere gives you more flexibility, and you are less likely to skip a lesson.
We have been teaching piano online for the past 8 years, and it works. Our students are in 6 countries.
Online lessons can help improve student listening skills, as they require more focused listening from students.
Online piano lessons require more independence and ownership of lessons by our students.
A fun, hassle free way to develop a new skill, explore your creativity and challenge your mind.

Any acoustic upright or grand piano that is tuned and well maintained or a digital 88-note keyboard that is touch sensitive and has weighted action would be suitable.
Any newer computer or tablet with high-quality built-in webcam, microphone and speakers would be suitable.
Your device will need to be plugged in during your online sessions.
Phones are generally not suitable, as their screens are too small for this purpose.
Use the highest-speed internet connection you can get. Hard-wired internet connection on both ends would be the best option, and it would help your audio and video to be as clear as possible. Use an ethernet cord to create a hard-wired internet connection.
You can check your internet speed at https://speedtest.net.
The most popular video-chat apps are Skype, FaceTime and Zoom. We prefer to use Zoom. It’s very powerful and has a lot of useful features, for example screen sharing.
Good lighting can considerably enhance your viewing experience. It’s best to have the lighting source behind the webcam, shining on your face. You can just use a desk lamp and position it behind your webcam.
Better lighting produces a better visual experience and gives both, student and teacher clearer views of one another.
Not to worry! Please arrange a free 30 minutes phone consultation with us and we will help you to set up. We will also answer any questions that you might have.
We will walk you through the basic setup to have you up and running in no time.
Yes, online piano lessons are very effective. We have been teaching piano online since 2012, and currently have 17 clients in 6 countries, who study with us online via Skype, Zoom and FaceTime. At present, 11 clients study towards and regularly take ABRSM piano exams, achieving strong results with an incredible overall pass rate of 100%.
Our online teaching process is actually very similar to our face-to-face teaching process. There can be a few small differences to which you can easily adapt after the first couple sessions.
There can be sound delays from either end of the call. Occasionally these delays can be quite noticeable, but on a day-to-day basis, unless you are playing duets, it’s not an issue.
For best results, teacher and student should speak or play in turn, not simultaneously, when learning online. Playing or speaking at the same time, can affect the sound.
5 – 8 years old – parents should be actively involved, at least at the beginning.
Otherwise, 8 years old.
Ideally yes, at least at the beginning. If your child is between 5 and 8 years old, you have to be actively involved.
Just one camera is needed. Either a camera built into your device as standard or a standalone webcam would work.
Internet bandwidth can cause audio and video issues, especially when the teacher or student has a poor internet connection or a slower speed. This can easily be improved by purchasing a faster internet package from your internet service provider.
This can happen sometimes, but we find it to be relatively rare. However, if it does happen, please wait for us to reinitiate the connection, so we can continue the lesson.
We have learned that iPads and computers should be restarted from time to time, or else the screen can freeze during an online lesson. Please restart your devices regularly to help to prevent this from happening.
This rarely happens, but when it does, it often corrects itself within a few seconds. For those occasional times that it doesn’t correct itself, ending the call and restarting the device often does the trick.
Please have your pencil and eraser ready, as you might need to make notes in your score by yourself. We will give you very clear directions.
Not to worry! We use screen sharing features, and also we have several cameras. We can just zoom in and point to a particular place in your score.
Yes, we ask our students to provide a photo or scan of their scores.
Yes, please keep your computer or tablet plugged in during your online piano lessons.
It depends on the quality of your connection. If your connection is not great, it would be better to use a hard-wired internet connection. Use an ethernet cord to create a hard-wired internet connection. If you need any help, please book a free 30-minute phone consultation with us.
