Private music lessons in piano, organ and harpsichord are provided via SKYPE or FACETIME internet connections. If you are considering taking music lessons online, please bear in mind the following important considerations and requirements:

  • You will need a reliable high-speed internet connection
  • You will need an up-to-date computer, iPad or tablet or desktop computer with a camera.
  • The camera will need to be placed in such a way that the teacher can clearly see your hands, torso and body position as they relate to the keyboard. Adequate lighting is very important. An external microphone will provide a much more satisfying teaching interface than the microphone built into your laptop computer or cell-phone.
  • All "background activities" (automatic updates, feeds, weather updates, messaging services, apps, etc.) on your computer, laptop, notebook, ipad or tablet, or cell-phone should be turned off to increase the bandwidth necessary for Skype and FaceTime to operate quickly, reliably and efficiently and to avoid interruptions in your lesson time.
  • Payment verified through PayPal is required at the beginning of each lesson and before the lesson can begin.
  • A deposit equal to the fee for one online lesson is required to reserve your space for online lessons.
  • Lessons may be cancelled with 24-hours notice. If less than 24 hourse notice is given, the student will forfeit his or her deposit amount. Lessons cannot resume until your deposit balance is restored in the teacher's PayPal account.
  • Be prepared for your lesson. Your teacher will call you at the time of your pre-arranged lesson appointment
