The Complete Guide to Online Piano Lessons
What is an Online Piano Lesson and How Does it Actually Work?
One of the most popular ways to learn piano is with an online tutor, and this has skyrocketed since the Covid-19 pandemic. Even after all restrictions had been lifted, online lessons have rapidly continued to grow in popularity.
By 2025, the online tutoring space is predicted to be worth around £227 billion ($276 billion)!
There are a variety of genres and levels available catering for all requirements, for example, whether you are a complete beginner or have previously had lessons before, or whether you would like to learn how to play chart songs, jazz, classical, modern, or show tunes! By utilising these online education services and taking lessons with a qualified and experienced business like Piano With Jayne, students are able to choose a learning environment that works best for them, which in turn leads them to feel more productive and confident in their studies.
Online piano lessons are a great way to learn how to play the piano in the comfort of your own home. Learning virtually allows students to study at their own pace with lessons that are customized to meet their individual goals and objectives.
Piano With Jayne offers online piano lessons over Zoom and FaceTime, catering for adults and children of all levels. I send a Zoom link to the student before the lesson, they connect on the agreed day and time, and the entire lesson is carried out virtually. There is very little difference between teaching in this way and in-person lessons. It is just another means of 'meeting up'!
I have a multi-camera setup, allowing me to demonstrate so the student to see exactly what I am playing on the piano. There are many benefits to learning how to play the piano online instead of in person with an instructor. Some of the most popular reasons are that you can practice at your own pace, which is perfect for people who have busy schedules. You also won't have to spend money on petrol or other transportation fees if you live far away from where your instructor resides.
Why Become a Piano Player?
Learning to play the piano is so much more than just a 'hobby'. It is a skill that will stay with you for life. It teaches you discipline, dedication, and how to enjoy the process of creating music. You can even choose to become a professional pianist which will open up many career opportunities in everything from teaching to performing.
Being able to to sit down at the piano and express yourself through music is an experience like no other. It can be a challenging and expensive endeavor, but it is also incredibly rewarding. When you finally master a piece of music that has taken you hours, days, or weeks to learn, the sense of accomplishment cannot be matched.
What are the Different Types of Pianos?
There are many different types of pianos available for purchase, and it can be difficult to know which one is the best for you. The following guide will help you understand the various types of pianos, and help you choose the best one for your needs.
There are two main categories of pianos: acoustic and digital. Acoustic pianos produce sound through strings and wood, while digital pianos use electronics to simulate a piano's sound. The difference in price between acoustic and digital pianos is significant, with acoustic being much more expensive than digital. An acoustic piano has a longer lifespan than digital, and if a digital piano key breaks, it can be impossible in many cases to find someone who can fix it.
There are many different types of pianos ranging in shapes and sizes, but they all have the same basic components. The piano has a frame, strings and a keyboard. The frame is the part of the piano that supports the strings and holds them in place. The strings are stretched across the frame and held in place by metal pins. The keyboard is where you press your fingers to play notes on the piano.
It is a good idea to do your research first in order to decide what size piano you would like to purchase. A small piano would be better for children or people who live in smaller homes with limited space, while a larger piano might be better for people with more space and a higher budget.
