So you’re ready to take your piano learning online and you realize that for ultimate convenience and learning at your own pace that online piano lessons are the future, right?
Well, that’s a great idea and I think it’s one of the best ways to learn piano mainly because you don’t need to schedule your time around a private tutor (who costs a fortune wherever you live).
However, before you download a piano course you must make sure you don’t waste your time and money on a real dud, and believe me there are quite a few to wade through before you find a piano course that’s worth bothering with…
In just a moment, I will show you how to find the right piano course to download and how I have singled out the chaf from the wheat, so to speak.
“What’s the worst that can happen if I download a piano course that’s no good?”
Actually, quite a lot of negative repercussions can happen as a result of a shoddy download. Let’s have a look at what happens when you pick the wrong online piano course:
1. Time wasted
Goes without saying really, that the time it takes to download and install, then actually get up and running with the program is a total waste if the piano course is utter junk. Plus, it is extra hassle to un-install it all and of course it wastes more time in doing so.
Plus, a bad online piano course will take longer to learn what you need and want to learn on the piano, so you have to think of that side of things too. This could equate to years of needless struggle, so beware!
2. Bad habits
Sure, you might be inclined to stick with what you’ve been lumbered with, but just like learning to drive, learning from a bad online piano course could leave you with a bad foundation in terms of the theory and also the techniques. These are actually difficult to reverse after a while.
3. Wasted money
This is obviously the main one, and although most online piano course downloads should offer a refund, be careful as believe it or not, some of the lesser known and more shady companies online will make it harder for you to get a refund, hoping you’ll just give up trying after a while (I’ve had this happen to me many times, and yes, I gave up on a few…)
Either way, here’s a few pointers for finding a piano course online that’s right for you:
1. Who’s teaching it?
Credibility is very important, so make sure the teacher is someone who knows what they are talking about.
2. How’s it being taught?
Multiple modalities (video, text, audio) are important, because we all learn in different ways. Having all these modalities in the piano course makes it much easier and quicker to learn to play piano like a true pro!
Is there a solid, long guarantee in place? When it comes to a program that will take you more than a couple of days to absorb, you need to know that the guarantee will last more than a couple of days (or weeks in fact). The last thing you want to find out is that there’s a problem with the 7th lesson, 3 weeks later and the guarantee has run out.
4. Caters for multiple skills levels
If you’re a beginner, you don’t want to try and learn jargon aimed at professionals, and vice versa. A good piano course will masterfully bring you up the learning curve of playing piano without leaving you in the dark at any stage. A good course will also allow you to jump in easily at the level you’re at, but still be able to teach you everything you’ve still to learn.
If you follow these guidelines, you’ll be able to find and download a piano course that’s more than suitable for your needs. There are of course other aspects to consider, which we detail in our exclusive online piano course review [http://trustusreviews.com/Best_Online_Piano_Course] here.
That should help you uncover the flaws to some of the most popular online piano courses, helping you to make a wise decision without falling into the common traps above.
