I was looking for lessons that really started from the most basic concepts so my daughter can learn the proper posture, techniques, ear training and sight reading. I also wanted something that allowed her to move through lessons at her own pace, whether that means doing a lesson each day or repeating a lesson several times until she understands. And, last but not least, I was looking for something affordable.
I was so thankful to find lessons that met my criteria and are not only affordable–they are free! There are 100 free lessons online–and they are adding to that library of lessons. You can go online and take these lessons anytime. The only fee involved is if you choose to order accompanying lesson materials. These materials include mp3 downloads of songs, sheet music, instructions and a parent guide all available for an instant download at less than $1 per lesson. Which means my daughter can have 20 lessons and all of the needed materials for less than the cost of one traditional piano lesson.
We have found that the lessons are perfect for my elementary age daughter. In fact, I’m going to start my 7-year-old son on the program as well. Since it can be done from home, we are able to complete the lessons without blocking off huge chunks of time to drive to lessons and without the cost of lessons. And Hoffman Academy lessons are all taught by Master of Music Joseph Hoffman who has worked for years to develop his own method of teaching piano. And at 5-10 minutes each, my fidgety kids are able to stay focused easily on the lessons. Lessons include playing the piano as well as completing practice worksheets to work on rhythm, sight reading and other important skills.
