Easy to set up

What you need


A well maintained acoustic piano would be ideal. If this is not possible, we recommend to have at least a keyboard with weighted keys and touch-sensitivity

Laptop or tablet

The simplest set up is a laptop with a built-in or attached webcam placed next to your piano. A tablet will also be suitable. Smartphones can be used too although screens might be too small for this purpose. Please plug in your device during your online piano lesson to avoid any disruption.


A high-speed internet connection on both ends assures a reliable video and audio communication. Alternatively, an Ethernet cable can offer better speed, lower latency, and more solid connections.

Online platform

FaceTime and Google Duo are two reliable platforms available. Video calls through screen sharing apps like Zoom and Skype allow you to watch our multi-camera live setup. You will be able to see your teacher and his hands from multiple angles simultaneously so there are no details missed!

Online piano lessons FAQ

Are online piano lessons the same as in person lessons?

To have a teacher who listens to you through live meetings means you will have a professional pianist guiding your practice, making sure you improve your playing and develop your musical artistry.

When it comes to learning new pieces, online piano lessons are similar to in-person sessions. Even though the teaching approach might look different, the student will continue to polish musical details and learn new music as in face-to-face lessons.

Can remote lessons be as good as in person lessons?

As a matter of fact, given the current amount of online teaching platforms, there is no reason to believe teaching online can’t be as successful as in-person lessons.

Since the teacher has to communicate differently, online lessons can be more engaging for the pupil.

Similarly, it can also be quite revealing for parents to see how the student interacts with their piano teacher.

How should I prepare for my online lesson?

In the same way you would prepare for a face-to-face lesson. Get your scores, pencils and erasers ready and wait for your teacher to video call you. Try your best to keep the room as quiet as possible; background home noises (dish washing, TV…) can actually sound very loud through a microphone.

Do I need to share my scores with the teacher beforehand?

Yes. Students are encouraged to scan their sheet music or send a link to a digital score for their teacher.

How many cameras will I need?

Just one camera placed next to the piano will suffice.

Do parents need to be present?

Although it is not essential for a parent to be present, it may be helpful if you have a child that is easily distracted or who could need help with technology.
