Picture: Remote Lesson Setup in 2012

 

Since 2008, I have provided professional online piano instruction. These are referred to as long distance lessons, or sometimes as remote lessons, but more often than not, today we refer to them as online lessons.

 

As the pedagogical approach in an online lesson differs totally from the standard one-to-one lesson, it takes a lot of experience, which comes from trial and error, to perfect a method that works well using this medium. It took me years to develop an efficient teaching technique for

long distance teaching. Why? Because there is simply no "hands on!". A hand or finger position cannot be corrected through direct contact with the student. Nearly everything has to be verbalized and this demands a real mastery of piano pedagogy.

 

Today's setup is much smaller, but it’s also more efficient than what you’ll see in this picture from "old times," from the first baby steps in online piano instruction. The long distance lesson will never replace the classical one-to-one lesson, but it is an incredibly helpful option.

 

Recently, my online student Sophia Edwards from Melbourne won the Macau Piano Competition. So… it is absolutely „figureoutable“!
