Stuck at home? Life under lockdown is actually the best opportunity to take up online piano lessons.
Hampstead Piano Academy provides online music tuition suitable for all ages and levels of experience.
One-to-one piano lessons via Skype and similar online video call platforms are now available.
For a new generation of music students
The benefits of a musical education are now as important as ever. Learning an instrument nurtures your inner creativity and can help you rediscover the lost virtue of patience. Make the most of your or your kid’s free time and learn piano online. It may not only be your next challenge but also turn into your new hobby.
What you need
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.
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.
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.
Yes. Students are encouraged to scan their sheet music or send a link to a digital score for their teacher.
Just one camera placed next to the piano will suffice.
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.
