Online Piano Lesson
Private piano lesson via live video calling using Skype, FaceTime, Facebook, Zoom, Google Hangouts or Whatsapp.
As technology has advanced, more and more students have liked the idea of using video calling (e.g. Skype or FaceTime) or video sharing as a medium for participating in piano lessons. The increasing ease and accessibility of video calling on smartphones and tablets has made this a realistic and easy option in recent years. Nowadays, tablets and smartphones tend to be well designed for video calls.
Required equipment: For online lessons, you only need a smart phone, tablet or webcam and a fast internet connection. If you don’t have a fast enough or reliable internet connection you may want to consider video exchange instead. For video exchange lessons you can use a free file sharing platform such as Google Drive, OneDrive, Dropbox or YouTube. When you send me your practice videos for feedback, I will send video responses. A tripod or stand is useful for holding your phone, tablet or webcam in a good position for lessons. The ideal position is one that allows your upper body and the keyboard to be in the frame. You can buy special mobile phone/tablet holders and tripods, or a music stand can work well. Alternatively, just prop up your phone/tablet on a nearby shelf or tablet.
VIDEO EXCHANGE LESSON
Instead of live face-to-face lessons, we will exchange videos weekly. You will still receive the same quality of lessons yet you can record your progress at any time throughout the week.
Just like the weekly online lessons,
I will give a thorough feedback on the items your child practiced
I will discuss strategies on how to play it better
I will then introduce new concepts
Then I will give you a plan on how to execute
You will receive my feedback via PDF, score annotations and short video or audio clips demonstrating some complicated points.
This is perfect for families who don’t have a fast and reliable internet speed for live stream lessons but still want quality piano lesson for their child. It’s also perfect for the busy professionals who want to commit weekly but travel frequently and/or have ever-changing schedules.
