Video Piano Lessons

I am sure you might have heard of popular video games such as Guitar Hero or
Rock Band whereby people have fun with music while playing video games. As a result of these, music related
instructions are enjoying higher sales.
As a piano player for more than 5 years, I had personally used both the traditional and online resources during
my piano learning journey. While both are effective in their own ways and provide a good platform for learning,
there are some differences between them and I’ll hope to list some of them here so that you know which is more
suitable for you.
Years ago, when I visited my local music school for piano classes, I had several instructors during the years I
took private lessons. Some instructors were better musicians and some were better teachers. The point I am making
here is that even if someone has the best qualifications in music, that doesn’t necessary makes him/her a better
teacher than someone with less certifications. Of course, you might outgrow some teachers overtime as you improve
and look more style specific genres to master.
The advantage of having a private instructor is that you can get to ask questions and receive answers on the
spot. He/she would also be on hand to help you correct any mistakes you might make. Today, the average costs of
having a private lesson might cost somewhere around $40-$60 for 30 minutes of instructions. Also, you’ll need to
factor in the time to travel for you lesson and the additional costs incurred.
Besides being a good alternative, lessons on videos can offer a degree of
flexibility that allow you the best time to view and watch at your convenience. I found them to be a massive
and growing market on the Internet due to the advantages they present. Lessons are usually recorded as if you
were sitting in front of the instructor in a one on one session.
A cool feature is that you can pause the video at any point in time and rewind back to something you need more
help on as many times as you need! I don’t know of any piano teacher who has the patience to show you something or
repeat his words if you need to view it 10 times.
While the quality of video lessons can be debated from someone filming with a webcam to those that have been
professionally recorded and edited, there is really no substitute for seeing and hearing how something is supposed
to be played on the piano. For example, the Learn And Master Piano course offers multi-angle cameras and animation
that makes learning fun and easy.
With the use of technology, the overall costs of learning online had been greatly reduced due to a larger market
of consumers. Most of the established companies in online instructions have money back policies if you are not
satisfied with the product. This is definitely something you won’t get in a private teacher. Grab a course, master
it, and move on to another course when you are ready. For a full year’s of education, piano lessons on video would
hardly be more expensive than what you would have to pay for in a month’s of private classes.
