6 Benefits of Online Piano Lessons

Updated: May 1, 2021

If you are new to the concept of online lessons, this page is for you!

More than 300 million students worldwide are having their education disrupted by the spread of Coronavirus. Schools and universities haven’t faced this level of disruption in generations, but unlike any time in the past, we have the ability to continue education even when schools close. In this uncertain environment, it’s important that learning continues.

In this article we want to talk about 6 benefits of online piano lessons that goes beyond our current circumstances with COVID-19, and how they are a great asset to your child's learning.

1. No geographic constrains to have access to quality piano lessons.

With the rise of great available technology for distance learning, parents and students are no longer constrained by geographic location to connect with amazing teachers. Also, when families need to move due to job situations, they no longer have to search for another teacher. Instead, they can continue their child's music education with the same quality instruction of before with the same teacher.

2. We have found that teaching is really a team effort. When parents are actively involved in their child's education, students thrive in their playing. With online teaching, parents are always welcome in the classroom. With the guidance of the teacher, they can weekly assist in setting healthy practice habits and routines.

3. Students take ownership of their on learning and progress.

Students are more attentive and focused in an online classroom setting because they take ownership of their own learning and progress. They have to make their own markings in the music and be responsible for preparing for each lesson. This promotes self-discipline and independence.

4. In a world embedded in technology, students really enjoy using tech gadgets. Teachers can utilize this advantage to interact with students in ways that are not always available with in-person lessons. Zoom is one of the best distance learning apps currently available. It offers the annotations and screen share features which allows teachers to highlight passages and instruct students how to make their own markings, cultivating their independent thinking and creativity. 5. Teacher's direct input on improving students' practice space.

A huge advantage for students and teachers that are available in online lessons, but is not always available when teaching in person, is the ability for the teacher to see the student's practice space. Sometimes piano technique problems arise because students are not sitting at the proper height or are sitting too close to the keys. In a virtual setting, the teacher can give immediate input, allowing the student to have the proper setup and avoiding piano technique problems down the road.

6. Students can review the lesson materials repeatedly.

Zoom allows for video recording on both the teacher and students' side, so students can review key points of the lesson throughout the week. This feature is unique to a virtual setting because it allows the student to revisit the lessons and be better prepared. This is like having the teacher with the student in every practice session in a video format reinforcing important concepts and practice habits.
