Attending blues piano lessons via Skype or Face Time is an amazing alternative thanks to the wonderful modern video conferencing technology that is now available to us.
Contrary to what some people still believe, there is absolutely no difference between taking blues piano lessons in person or via Skype or Face Time.
We have actually discovered that using Skype or Face Time is much more beneficial for several reasons.
Being physically miles away from your piano instructor will definitely not affect the quality of your blues piano lessons nor your education.
By taking blues piano lessons via Skype or Face Time with The Online Piano Institute, you will have the privilege to benefit from the highest blues piano instruction whether you are an absolute beginner without any prior musical knowledge or an advanced blues pianist.
You will be learning the secrets of playing blues piano as used by the greatest blues pianists such as Fats Domino, Jerry Lee Lewis, Otis Spann, Ray Charles, Cow Cow Davenport or Albert Ammons.
You will discover all the rhythmical and melodic possibilities that blues piano offer, learn how to play in the boogie-woogie style, create your own piano licks, slide up and down the piano and master the pentatonic and blues scales.
In addition, you will learn all the embellishments of the I, IV, V blues progression and how to play or improve your left-hand blues riffs.
Once again, there is no reason at all why the physical distance between yourself and your piano instructor should make any difference in your blues piano education.
On the contrary, learning via Skype or Face Time has several incredible advantages, which has so far never disappointed any of our numerous blues piano students:
Reason #1 – You can study with an extremely esteemed blues piano instructor whatever your current location
Attending your blues piano lessons with a highly skilled and experienced blues piano instructor is fundamental to acquire the right habits and correct techniques from day one.
Playing the piano like the blues giants is not as easy as it may seem at first!
That is why you definitely need the guidance of an expert blues pianist via Skype or FaceTime to achieve your ultimate goal.
You definitely need world-class blues instruction even if you only play for your own pleasure.
You will then obtain a strong blues piano foundation, necessary to obtain the melodic and rhythmic skills required in blues music.
Some blues enthusiasts might think that they could simply contact their local piano instructor, but it is very improbable that an expert blues pianist and instructor resides around the corner.
Especially if you live in a small town!
We are very grateful for the wonderful technology that Skype and FaceTime offer!
You can now learn to play blues piano from any location across the world as long as you have an internet connection and a tablet, mobile phone or laptop!
Yes, it is easy!
In addition to this, we are also proud to say that our blues instructors are all extraordinary instructors who specialise in teaching adults, and who know how to develop your skills in a manner that suits your unique personality.
Teaching adult enthusiasts is our passion and we truly want you to become the wonderful blues pianist that you deserve to be!
You are most welcome to learn blues piano with us via Skype or FaceTime!
Reason #2 – No time wasted commuting
Another benefit of taking blues piano lessons via Skype or FaceTime is the unbelievable time you can save by not having to commute to a piano academy or the studio of a private piano instructor.
The Daily Mail reported in April 2014 that Londoners spend an average of 10,634 hours travelling to work over a lifetime, which is equivalent to one hour and 14 minutes a day.
Why adding more commuting time to your life when you can study with the most experienced and qualified blues piano instructor from the comfort of your residence?
Let’s not even mention the stress and fatigue that commuting adds to your life, while your busy professional career might already provide plenty!
By taking your piano lessons via Skype or FaceTime with The London Piano Institute, you can learn how to play the blues brilliantly in the privacy of your own home and take some time to relax before turning your computer on.
Learning how to play blues piano requires focus!
Skype piano lessons offer you the opportunity to benefit fully from outstanding piano instruction in a comfortable way.
By not commuting you will have a lot more concentration to focus on your blues piano lessons!
Reason #3 – You have the enormous chance to be able to warm up before your piano lesson starts
If you attend your piano lessons in person, you would usually travel to your piano instructor and you would have no possibility of warming up before showing your instructor the brilliant progress you have made.
Playing with unprepared or cold hands could be difficult and it is the reason why international blues pianists always warm up before a performance.
You can then revise the blues licks or rhythmic patterns which you would have worked on during your personal practice sessions and demonstrate them to perfection to your instructor.
Imagine your disappointment if you were unable to play the blues scale that you would have practised hard all week due to unprepared hands and fingers!
With Skype and FaceTime, you have none of these problems!
You can be warm and ready to show your progress to your instructor!
Reason #4 – You can put in practice the new skills which you have just learned straight after your lesson
Even if your instructor writes down your homework for the following week, being distracted on your way back home or the office could easily make you forget what you have just learned.
Being able to put in practice a lick, a feel, a chord or a rhythm straight away is formidable as you can be assured to do it exactly as your piano instructor advised without forgetting any essential part.
In addition, if you request for your blues piano lesson to be recorded, you can then watch it at a later stage again for further study!
Technology just makes learning so much easier!
Reason #5 – You have the exceptional advantage to play on your own piano
As a pianist, you are constantly required to perform on an instrument which is different from the piano you are practising on at home, and this can be extremely inconvenient.
Each instrument is different, especially the weight of the keys. It can be amazingly distracting and affect the first part of your blues piano lessons in person. You would need at least 15 minutes to adjust to your instructor’s piano.
By taking your blues piano lessons via Skype or FaceTime, you will be able to demonstrate the blues licks, rhythms, I, IV, V progressions, and slides up and down the piano exactly as you have practised during your personal sessions.
What’s more, you will be able to do so immediately WITHOUT hesitation!
Performing them on your instructor or piano school’s instrument would definitely affect the expected result and create a lot of frustration.
Only extremely experienced professional blues pianists are able to adapt to a different instrument each time, but it is a skill that can only be developed over many years spent on stage.
Reason # 6 – Learn how to play Blueberry Hill or Great Balls Of Fire from the comfort of your residence
At The Online Piano Institute, we cannot praise the power and progress of technology enough!
It is extremely impressive to know that our wonderful blues piano instructors are able to pass their remarkable knowledge to all adult blues enthusiasts without any location issue.
It is simply incredible and we are pleased to be able to offer you this immense privilege!
The Online Piano Institute has been founded with the aim of helping adults learn to play the piano.

There are only positive aspects of learning via Skype or FaceTime!
You really do not need much!
As long as you have a decent internet connection and a laptop, you are ready to go!
You can even learn over a tablet or smartphone.
In fact, some of our students, even learn online with us via the telephone!
