Bespoke video and email piano lessons
I have never been so inspired or in love with the piano as I have been for the past few months whilst having lessons from Ruth. I am a returning adult learner learning through distance learning with Ruth. I have had in-person lessons with various other teachers in the past and honestly feel as though distance learning is so much more beneficial! Ruth is fantastic at explaining things via email and videos, you can tell she really does put a lot of time into things and never rushes her feedback. Not only do I strongly recommend Ruth as a piano teacher but I also strongly recommend distance learning as a method. I am hoping to soon start preparing for my grade 6 exam with Ruth and feel every confidence that she will be able to get me there!
If you have a busy lifestyle and want to learn piano in your own time, I can create correspondence lessons designed especially for your needs, preference and ability. All you have to do is email me and tell me what you want to learn, and for a fee of £8 GBP I will create a demonstration video for you which gives a clear view of my hands on the keyboard. Where appropriate I will also break down the piece and show you how to go about learning it, and you can easily copy my demonstrations. I will also provide email instructions which you can read as many times as you need. If the music is in the public domain, I can provide sheet music with note names if you have trouble reading music. I will send you links for the demonstration videos which will allow you to stream or download them on your phone, tablet or computer.
Easy to follow demonstrations, break downs of tricky areas, and emailed instructions.
Often customers come to me for this service because they find a recording of a piece of music that they want to learn (e.g. on YouTube), beautifully performed; but because it is being played up to speed it is far too fast to try and figure out by ear or keep up. Customers often want a very slowed down, broken down version of the piece so that they can more easily follow along and imitate, enabling them to learn it little by little at their own pace, and then eventually get up to speed with practice. Certain things that seem impossible when heard played up to speed, suddenly make sense when broken down and slowed down in the right way. I can do that for you, and show you how to play things that you are having trouble figuring out. You can also be reassured that I will teach correct technique and help you avoid getting into bad habits which will seriously hinder any progress. This is because I am fully qualified and specialise in classical training.
Expert advice on how to progress.
If you're not entirely sure exactly what you want to learn, but would like something to get you started or help your learning along: we can discuss your level, experience and preferences; and any problems you have encountered if you have already started learning piano; and then I can choose and demonstrate something that will best suit your needs.
Convenient and easy.
The difference between this service and my video exchange piano lessons, is that with this particular service you don't have to record yourself playing for feedback. All you have to do is describe to me what your aims are, and then you will receive a personalised video and email lesson.
