Lisa’s online piano classes at PianoVideoLessons.com are interactive and tailored to the students who enroll.  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!

 

Here’s what you can expect:

  • 4 months of bi-weekly (2x per month) LIVE online group piano classes.  These will be 45-minute long LIVE webinar style classes, personalized to your learning needs. Including access to lesson replays for a full year – for whenever you need to hit ‘refresh.’
  • 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.
  • Direct access to Lisa, your piano teacher!
    • If you need extra help or suggestions, simply ask in our Private Facebook group!
    • Post a question or a video and you’ll receive directed feedback.
    • These online piano classes are all about YOUR needs, the bi-weekly classes are not pre-recorded.  They are taught live in order to dynamically address your specific needs from class to class!
  • Private Facebook Group Community  where you can share stories, videos and camaraderie – get inspiration and learn tips and tricks from yours truly AND your peers (see more details on this below). We’ll even have a few contests – with prizes!!  Lisa will be checking in regularly during the week to give you new tips, motivate you and see what you’re up to! (Keep watch for come challenges and prizes!!)
  • 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. Plus, you get the full support of the piano student community.
  • 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.

 

HOW IT WORKS:

  • The class will kick off with a live Webinar on September 1st and you’ll receive an email to get you started practicing.
  • Every second week, you’ll get a new Live Class and an email that outlines what you need to do in preparation for the next upcoming live class.
  • Lisa will give you a ‘schedule’ to roughly follow, but don’t worry if you get behind, you’ll have full access to the online class webinars until December 2020!
  • You should practice every day, 20-30 minutes, working towards the scheduled outcomes.
  • Between the classes, check in with our private Facebook Group- every day, a couple of times a week – whatever works for you.  We’ll be having lots of fun and keeping each other accountable.  (There will be some contests and prizes, too!)
  • Any time you like, you can ask questions in the private Facebook Group about any material covered so far in the class.  Also, you can post short videos demonstrating your triumphs or struggles. Help each other out, cheer each other on!  You’ll get a real sense of camaraderie in the Group.
  • Every second Sunday Lisa will host a LIVE class where she will tutor and troubleshoot exactly what you need help with. If you use the  Facebook Group effectively, Lisa will get to know your specific progress and troubles and the live lessons will be much more personalized for you.
  • Students will be given the opportunity to join the live lesson with their webcam, at the teacher’s discretion.  This is a great time to receive direct instruction, which can benefit all students! (Most people will experience similar challenges.)

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

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

  • An internet connection (like the one you are using to read this)
  • An instrument (how else will you learn?) 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?
