Piano Lessons Online
Let me say right from the start, they do work and in actual fact sometimes even better than face to face. Yes, they really can make a huge difference and I will cover this.
Many years ago I would laugh at tuition online regarding any music lesson. I felt that there was so much negativity that I actually would not entertain it even when asked to provide this service. I had 2 pupils who were learning guitar online and one of the teachers kept disappearing to make food. This in itself is an embarrassment and I would not allow myself to be taken into a new route of teaching. The other child reported that his teacher was constantly smoking whilst teaching.
So what changed my mind? Covid changed my mind and I had to change my ideas about how to not only keep my business going but to honour the pupils that I had been teaching.Every business had to change, people had to work and still do work from home. The way we work has now changed forever, certainly for many people around the world.
Covid, has presented us all with many challenges, wither you are student at school, a parent trying to cope and people who would normally work in offices, pubs, buildings, public and private sectors. It certainly has changed the way our hospitals and our NHS is run.
So what have I had to do to change?
I've had to invest in different ways of communication such as upgrading software advertising, computers, telephones and internet connections. I've had to make sure that I can teach pupils all over the UK and also worldwide.
Mostly I have now had to change direction with Exam Boards. I have had to move pupils to Trinity College online exams. I also have continued to offer ABRSM exams. All I may say have been a great success.
So what are the key benefits of online tuition with myself. Well firstly let me say that even some of my pupils that started last years from scratch and whom have only had 1 month of face to face lessons are now at ABRSM and Trinity exam Grades of 5-8. That's from a beginner to Grade 7 online in 1 year.
Please do note. I will be offering face to face lessons when I think it is suitable and then I will be offering both. Most parents have already told me they wish to continue with online lessons and the following will explain why they now prefer this method.
