  • Parent involvement for young beginners

  • Payment due on the first of the month for upcoming lessons​

A piano has a touch, feel, and sound that even the most expensive keyboards cannot reproduce. In my experience, students learn faster and stay in lessons longer with a piano. Keyboards, especially if they do not have weighted keys, don't have enough resistance to strengthen the fingers for beginners. Students then become frustrated because their fingers do not have the individual strength they need to play effectively and expressively. And, a keyboard will not have the same tone quality and responsiveness that a piano has. 

 

Don't let cost or size be a determining factor.  Often, used pianos can be found for free or low cost on Offerup and Facebook Marketplace. And, the footprint of a real piano is only slightly larger than a full size keyboard. Also, a real piano is a piece of furniture and is more attractive than a keyboard, especially if placed in a living area. Feel free to reach out to chat more about finding a used or new piano.

Do Online Lessons Really Work? 

YES, THEY DO!

During our lesson, I have camera views of my hands on the keys, my face and the lesson book.

Additionally, the video tutorials support the student throughout the week as they see and hear the music they have just learned. 

I have started many students, including young beginners, with online lessons and they have been very successful!
