Lisa’s online piano classes are interactive and tailored to her students.

By joining us, you’ll learn faster, and have more fun! The whole learning experience is tailored to YOUR specific needs.

As a piano teacher who has worked with hundreds of students of all ages, Lisa knows that everyone learns differently. We all have a different way of absorbing information and of learning practical skills.

This is why Lisa created these online piano classes – so you can learn how to play piano with the support and motivation of a live teacher, in a class setting, in the way that’s most comfortable for YOU.

Having the motivation and personal touch of a (fabulous!) teacher who is following your progress will really help keep you on track!

 

 

How it works:

    • Lisa checks in regularly during the week to give you new tips, motivate you and see what you’re up to!  Her gentle motivating teaching style will really keep you going.
  • Flexibility – these online piano classes are just like learning with a live teacher, BUT with the added flexibility of creating your own learning and practicing schedule.
  • A  tailor-made and student-centric piano learning experience –to make sure that YOU get the attention you need in order to put your piano learning on the fast track.
  • PianoVideoLessons curriculum PLUS!  We’ll be following the PianoVideoLessons pre-recorded curriculum, PLUS you’ll also receive LOTS of extras: more song, bonus drills, worksheets and more.

What Do I Need to Enroll in an Online Piano Class?

Don’t worry, you only need a few basics:

  • An internet connection
  • An instrument A piano or a digital keyboard are great.
  • Time to practice – it is recommended that you have around 30 minutes, 5 or 6 days per week for review and practice.  Piano is a skill which requires daily attention to make steady progress.  These group classes will keep you motivated to practice!
  • A Facebook account (if you want to join in on the fun & learning with me, your teacher, and your peers) If you don’t have one, they are easy to create, you only need an email address.  And if you really don’t want to use the Private Facebook group, you can still participate in the class, but you’ll be missing out on the fun!
  • Not mandatory, but nice to have: a digital video device (smartphone, tablet, digital camera) to record and share video of yourself playing. Trust me, you will want to monitor your progress and see how far you’ve come in just five months.

Got all that?  Great!  Select the class that’s right for you and let’s go!

“I really enjoy watching everyone’s videos and reading all the comments and feedback from everyone’s uploads. It’s so fun to see everyone’s progress. The social aspect has been very beneficial.” ~Pax

The videos Pax mentions are the ones that students post to our facebook private facebook groups.  These practice videos allow me to give personalized coaching and feedback between the live classes. They give me valuable insight for tailoring the class to help all students. Plus, they also give each student the advantage of learning from the experience of others when they watch the videos they post.
