Online Piano Lessons
Online piano lessons with Greenside Music are taught by Catherine Wilson and Georgina Wilson.
You can be absolutely anywhere in the UK (or further afield!) and have online piano lessons.
We're physically based in Baschurch, near Shrewsbury, but our students are dotted all over England, Wales, and Ireland!
As long as you have a piano/keyboard and a device with an Internet connection, you're good to go!
Who are online piano lessons for?
✔ Beginners (yes, that means even adult beginners!)
✔ Intermediate players
✔ Advanced pianists
...Basically, online piano lessons are for everyone!
Are online piano lessons effective?
Your question is understandable!
There's a common assumption that online lessons aren't going to be as engaging, productive, or successful as face to face lessons.
But we have found it to be the complete opposite:
Younger students are less likely to be distracted by being in a different environment which leads to them being more focused on the task at hand
Music games and activities are used to keep younger students engaged and having fun (many parents have commented how impressed they are at how immersed their children are in the lessons!)
Students feel more comfortable and ready to learn as they haven't had to travel anywhere, and they have their piano set up ready for lessons and practice sessions
Online piano lessons allow for flexibility. We've had students move across the country, move to university, and travel to stay with family for a couple of months - all were happy they were able to continue with online piano lessons!
If you're wondering, "How do online piano lessons work?" Please don't hesitate to reach out and ask!
How much are lessons?
Lessons are £15 for 30 minute lessons. Lessons are paid for in blocks determined by term times.
You also have several other options for online piano lessons:
What do I need to be able to take online piano lessons?
We don't require anything complicated or fancy.
We like to keep things simple!
All you'll need is:
A piano or keyboard (we even teach students with out-of-tune pianos!)
A device with a stable internet connection (we have students using laptops, iPads, tablets, and phones)
An account to call you on. We use FaceTime, Skype, Facebook Messenger.
A printer (we'll send you things to print out for your lessons)
But how does it work?
In a nutshell:
1. We ring through to you.
2.You answer the call.
3. We give you a piano lesson, pretty much in the exact same way as we would face-to-face.
We have very good ears when it comes to hearing mistakes or what you're doing wrong.
We also have very good eyes when it comes to seeing how you can make improvements.
A student once remarked, "Nothing gets past you! It's like some sort of magic!"
We're also very descriptive in the way we talk, and will give you demonstrations as well as detailed explanations as to what to do and how to do it.

The Greenside Music Community
No two students are the same,
so no two lessons are the same!
Students all want to achieve something different and have their own aspirations, motivations, and interests.
When we can, we try and tailor our teaching to match each student, their way of thinking, and their personal goals.
Music can enrich your life in many different ways and can benefit your mind, body, and soul.
No matter what a students' focus is, Greenside Music strives to make all lessons fun and informative in order to encourage our students to have a lifelong enjoyment of music.
