Piano Lessons for Seniors? Online Course Promises Quick Results
(Published: May 06, 2011)
Used to be if you wanted to take piano lessons, you'd turn to your yellow pages and let your fingers do the walking.
Today, you can still let your fingers do the walking ... but online! That's according to pianist and composer Edward Weiss who has developed an online piano course especially suited for seniors.
Piano lessons for seniors are here and are online. Some are free, some paid. But there are options available to those who want to learn how to play the piano.
Here's what Mr. Weiss has to say:
"The first thing you want to do is identify what you want to learn. Do you like the New Age piano style? Do you want to learn jazz or classical? These too are online and are actually free."
Many seniors are actively getting involved in the online world. And as more and more do, the need to cater to this demographic group will become greater.
Here are some tips Edward suggests you should look for when selecting piano lessons online:
How are the lessons organized?
Many piano lessons online are formatted as a PDF file or e-book. There's nothing wrong with this at all. In fact, it's just an electronic book. This idea is used quite a lot in the online piano lesson world.
Then you have actual lessons online with video and audio samples. If you're like me, you want to hear AND see what's going on. Now, with video being easy to implement and download, you can watch your piano instructor actually give a lesson online.
And last but not least, you have something where you're actually "live" with an instructor via webcam. While this option may intrigue some, it might not be the best use of your dollar as this type of instruction does cost money.
Ed's recommendation? Look for lessons that have an instructor who uses video and audio samples. You can learn at your own rate and you won't feel rushed to "complete" assignments.
