Online Piano Lessons: 
Reviews and Recommendations

Are you trying to find some great online piano lessons? There are quite a few out there. I've picked through them to find the best ones to recommend. 

One thing to keep in mind when you consider the cost. I charge $25 per half hour piano lesson. So the cost of having a teacher is much much more than any online course. Even the most expensive online course here is less than a month of traditional piano lessons. 

If you'd like to find some free lessons online, I've got a list of my online lesson series you can access here

Before I review the other products I have to recomend my own chords course for lots of reasons. Why? Find out more here or click the banner below.

I hope you got a good idea of what kind of online piano lessons are out there. Each one has it's own specialty.

One thing to keep in mind. Many people want to learn quickly. But piano is something that really isn't all that quick to learn. It's the amount of time spent practicing that will get you playing faster. So don't choose your online course just because it says it's fast.

So now the choice is up to you! Choose what fits you the best and go out there and learn to play something!
