Learning piano is not only an enjoyable and fulfilling pursuit but also a path towards personal growth and development.
- Playing the piano enhances cognitive skills such as memory, attention, and problem-solving.

- Piano lessons promote patience as progress is made gradually over time.

Learning Piano Online
When it comes to online piano lessons, finding the best fit means selecting a program that aligns with your specific piano learning needs. Whether you’re interested in classical, jazz, or contemporary music, online piano teachers excel in tailoring their instruction to match your preferred music style. Online music teachers offer convenience and flexibility, allowing students to schedule lessons that fit their busy lifestyles. Unlike in-home lessons, where your options may be limited to nearby teachers, online piano lessons offer the advantage of choosing from a wider pool of instructors, allowing you to find your ideal teacher, even if they are located further away.
Benefits of Learning Piano with Music Lessons
Can I learn to play piano by myself 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.
Meet a Few Of Our Teachers
Everyone Can Learn to Play Piano
How difficult is it to play piano? What age should a child start 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.
Piano Lessons for Kids
Piano lessons for kids will include many aspects of piano lessons for beginners (depending on the child’s skill level, of course), but the content will be personalized for a younger learner. This will mean that their lesson plans will differ significantly in terms of repertoire and method compared to piano lessons for adults.
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.

Cost and Time Investment for Online Piano Lessons
How long will it take me to learn piano? How much will I need to practice?

You can expect to invest your time into the lessons as well as practice time. While piano lessons are an investment in cost and time, they are worth it when you find the piano and piano teacher that will work best for you.

It is possible to find used pianos in good condition for a few hundred dollars or used keyboards for under a hundred dollars. It is not necessary to spend a small fortune on one’s first piano, and it is always possible to upgrade as skill level and commitment level increase.
