Looking for free piano lessons on the internet?
You’re probably on this page because you’re searching for free piano lessons. Either for yourself or for your kid(s). You may have seen lots of results in the search engines offering ‘FREE piano lessons’. If you’ve clicked on any of them you’ll probably have found what we found. Proper piano lessons don’t come free. What you’ll find is a number of sites offering a few rudimentary ‘taster’ lessons that you are invited to take before being reeled in for the full paid course. Of course, there’s nothing wrong in offering a free trial (even Rocket Piano, that we mention above, does it) but we do feel it’s somewhat disingenuous if the advert promises more than it can deliver.
So, the bottom line here is: If you’re looking for free piano lessons, then you can probably forget it, they don’t exist. There’s no such thing as a free lunch. If you really are hard-up then the best thing you can do is to obtain one of the inexpensive courses that we review on this site. Ranging from $39.95 to $97.00 a downloadable course or tuition site membership is equal to the cost of one or two face-to-face lessons with a real live human teacher. They vary in their approach but most of them contain more than enough material to keep a beginner occupied for well over a year.
If you’re planning for your kids to learn the piano and are reluctant to shell out good money in case they don’t like it, why not try the old ruse used by schoolteachers when assigned to teach a subject they know nothing about? They take the course book home and read a chapter. Then they come to school the next day and teach the lids the contents of that chapter. The next week they read the next chapter and rinse and repeat. They always stay just one chapter ahead of the kids. You could do the same. Purchase any one of the packages described here then stay just one week ahead of your kids as you and they progress. That way you all get the value from the package and have fun learning together at the same time.
Learning the piano needn’t be expensive, there is a certain amount of free sheet music available on the Internet and, once you know what you’re doing, these can be a good source of new material. The actual tuition, however, is seldom likely to come free. If you’re beginner, then it’s important to get the right training from day one, to ensure that you don’t get into any bad habits. and the tuition packages that we discuss at Piano Detective are usually very competitively priced so you can get started without breaking the bank.
