The pros and cons of learning to play the piano online
2nd March 2016
The Internet has changed many aspects of our lives. First and foremost, it has changed the way in which we communicate with each other. Communication today is easier than ever thanks to the Internet. Another great thing about the Internet is the fact that this global network provides access to valuable sources of information. As a matter of fact, people can learn many new things online and learning how to play the piano is one of them. There are many people who are wondering whether this practice is good or bad and whether it is better to learn to play this magnificent instrument in a classic way or on the Internet. In order to determine which option suits you the best, you should learn more about the pros and cons of this practice. We will start by pointing out the pros of learning how to play the piano online.
For starters, you can find online sources that will help you obtain this skill for free. Of course, there are some good paid online courses too. Furthermore, whenever there is a change or upgrade in this type of education, you can easily find it on the Internet. These piano lessons always implement the latest trends and teaching methodology.
The people who give lessons and help others to learn how to play piano are usually experts in this field. They have the qualifications, training and skills and they are prepared to share it with the world. In addition, you can choose to take advanced and professional lessons too. Another great benefit is that online learning doesn’t require leaving your home. You can learn at any time of the day and at any place you want, as long as you have a computer/laptop and access to the Internet. In other words, learning to play piano in this way is more flexible.
When it comes to the cons, learning online doesn’t really replace that one-to-one interaction and learning that you can experience with a piano tutor who is sitting at your side. You can’t always get the quick answers you need online and who’s going to be there to point out when you’ve made a mistake?
I think the jury is still out with regards to whether online or face-to-face training is best. However, when it comes to choosing a piano, you really need to see it in action!
