Why I started teaching online.
I have taught online for the past 2 years, and some of you might be wondering why? Why would I teach piano online when I can give a personal one to one lesson in person? Are there benefits for students who learn online? There is, and I’d like to share some of the reasons I teach online, but also some of the reasons students might choose online lessons.
Like I wrote in another post, I started teaching online because a student asked if I could. This person lives interstate, and I had my doubts about it. However, it has really worked out well. This student is playing the music they love; having a ball at lessons. I know many people in remote areas cannot find a teacher. This is where online lessons are fantastic. Also, travelling to a teacher near you if you are in a remote area can be expensive and take time. Want to learn piano, but live remotely? Take online piano lessons.
Families now days are extremely busy. Many have things happening every night of the week. A piano is often very difficult to fit into a busy routine, but with online lessons, this can be reduced. No travel is involved in online lessons, as students learn from their own home. Not to mention their own instrument, which can be handy for a teacher when troubleshooting practice problems. Do you still want to learn piano, but are too busy to travel to a teacher? Try online lessons.
There are a few other reasons to learn online too. Some of my students have a disability, which makes travel difficult, and they are housebound. These students can still enjoy making music in spite of this though, through online learning.
