There are many piano courses available on the internet. Most are downloadable and very reasonably priced, they also offer secure ordering and money back guarantees, but is it a good idea to learn to play the piano with software downloaded from a website.
As a piano teacher, when I first encountered these courses I didn’t think they would take off and I certainly did not think that these courses could possibly work. My view was and still is that if you want to play the piano properly you must go to a piano teacher, but is this any better or worse than piano courses from the website.
Obviously, as a piano teacher, I am always going to promote this way of learning but I am now promoting piano learning software for beginners. Why? Because there are certain groups of people that cant afford piano lessons or don’t have time for regular piano lessons or are unable for various reasons unable to take lessons.
What do these groups of people have in common?
They might have the same desire to play the piano or a keyboard as someone that does take piano lessons, so why shouldn’t they have an opportunity to learn to play albeit in a different way. Now I still don’t believe you will become a great piano player using software to learn to play, but you certainly will get the start you need and you will most certainly enjoy the process and who knows you might like it so much you might even end up going to a piano teacher.
Which piano software course should you choose?
My answer is very simple. Any. They are all about the same, some have audio and video files, and some are digital books. At the end of the day, they are all telling you the same thing. Obviously, the more expensive courses will cover more topics, just browse through a few piano courses and get one that takes your fancy; it really is as simple as that.
Is it safe to buy these piano courses online?
Yes, it's very safe. Most websites use a third party payment processor such as PayPal and Clickbank who provide a secure environment for there sellers and customers and if you think about it, any piano course seller that started fiddling there customers they wouldn’t stay in business long. However, here are a few tips to keep you safe when buying software online.
1 Look for a money back guarantee in case you don’t like the product
2 When you click the pay button look for a padlock on the bottom right of your computer screen. This means the page is secure.
3 If you have a credit card, use it. It's probably the safest way to buy anything.
Finally, you can always email the website owner and ask a few questions.
So whether its lessons from your piano teacher or lessons from your piano software enjoy your piano playing, its great fun, that I can promise you.
