Tips for Piano Lessons Online Live
Here are our top three tips for piano lessons online live.
Get to know your digital keyboard. Settings such as metronome and drum accompaniment are helpful as latency for internet signals make it impossible to play with the teacher’s time keeping device.
Be mindful of bandwidth. Acoustic pianos are stationary and the hassle of moving the router for each lesson is an imposition. If possible, “schedule” other family members to be offline during the piano lesson. Walking the dog or washing the car usually works.
Go above and beyond. Position the camera above and behind the keyboard. For the teacher to be of greatest service, the camera needs to be about shoulder height and behind the student so the keyboard and sheet music can be seen.
