Many of my students prefer taking lessons from the comfort and safety of their own homes. Piano lessons online are much easier than you may think! It is not a video course or a class with many students, but live interactive face-to-face online piano lessons with you as the only student. You will see the notes I play and how to follow in your book, and you may ask any questions you have. I give clear direction, correction, and encouragement in your playing and ensure you can practice it on your own during the week. We usually chat and sometimes laugh, but we are very focused when playing the piano. Try a FREE online piano lesson!
