HERE’S HOW SKYPE PIANO LESSONS WORK:
BEFORE YOUR SKYPE PIANO LESSON:
Before the lesson you can communicate with your Skype piano teacher through e-mails, making them aware of any aspects in particular that you would like to cover in your next Skype piano lesson.
Your Skype piano teacher can send you any necessary sheet music, exercises, and notes by e-mail, for you to prepare before your lesson.
At the arranged day and time, your Skype piano teacher will “Video Call” you on Skype. You must be signed in to your Skype account to receive the call.
DURING YOUR SKYPE PIANO LESSON:
During your piano lesson, your Skype piano teacher will teach you just as they would during an in-person piano lesson.
If you are working from sheet music, your Skype piano teacher will have a copy as well, and make notes on their piano score, holding it within view of the camera for you to copy down in pencil on your own score. This method works especially well, since copying down the notes yourself will reinforce your understanding and memory of the points in question.
Sometimes it’s helpful to illustrate musical ideas through diagrams. Your Skype piano teacher can do this on paper, for you to see on camera, and then scan the sheet of paper to send you a copy by e-mail after your piano lesson.
Instead of writing your piano lesson notes and assigned homework in a notebook, your Skype piano teacher will send your notes in an e-mail message, at the end of each of your Skype piano lessons. Having all of your piano lesson notes on the computer makes them easy to find, and prevents them from becoming lost.
after your skype piano lesson:
Be sure to contact your Skype piano teacher by e-mail if you have any questions after your piano lesson. We are always here to help!
