Learning Piano Online
Remote music learning has come a long way in the past year. With more and more people spending time at home, the demand for online piano lessons has increased. Piano teachers have adapted to meet this rising demand for online piano lessons, developing and refining new ways to deliver the joy of learning a musical instrument to students through their screens. While this new virtual marketplace has given potential students more options when learning an instrument, the dizzying array of teachers available means that it can be very difficult for a beginner to know what they are looking for. At Forbes Music, we work closely with our teaching partners to pair each student with the online piano teacher that best suits their personal music learning needs.
Online Piano Lessons Vs. In-Home:
The best online piano lessons are the ones that most accurately address a student’s piano learning needs—What music style is the student interested in learning? How much time do they plan on practicing during the week? What are their goals and ambitions in learning the instrument? In order to most effectively address these needs, online piano teachers use a process of personalized feedback, reinforcing practice and playing habits that will most effectively help the student succeed. A key benefit of online piano lessons, as opposed to in-home piano lessons, is that the student is not limited to a piano teacher near-by. Sometimes, the ideal piano teacher is one a bit further away. This issue of location is by-passed through the online piano lesson.
Can I Teach Myself Piano Online?
When looking for online lessons, many students may stumble upon the world of YouTube tutorials. A world of unorganized content at one’s fingertips may seem enticing, but part of the issue with teaching yourself piano online is the lack of personalized feedback. As a beginner, it can be tough to know what is necessary to accomplish one’s piano goals. A private piano teacher will work closely with a student to assess their goals and give them personalized lesson content that will help them achieve their goals in the most efficient manner possible. No wasted effort means a smoother learning experience; less frustration and more fun.

How Skill and Age Relate to Piano lessons:
Piano lessons can benefit people of all ages and skill levels. At the beginning of the learning process, a private teacher will assess the student’s skill level and create a lesson plan that fits their interests. In beginner piano lessons, the teacher may focus on the fundamentals of music and piano, such as scales, exercises, and learning songs. Learning songs that one loves is a great way to learn about basic music theory—such as key and time signatures, rhythm and melody—all while developing repertoire. Few things are as fun as performing newly-learned songs for other people! Learning songs can be a great way for a beginner piano student to get the most out of their piano lessons.
What age should a child start piano lessons?
Studies have shown that piano lessons for kids provide many benefits to young children throughout adulthood. Because of this, a child that begins piano lessons at any age after three-years-old will begin to reap the benefits having studied piano in their youth. Strong scientific evidence correlates general music and piano lessons in childhood with strong verbal skills, higher self-esteem, higher test scores, and better overall school and work performance later in life.
