What does it look like when you become a Virtual Piano Academy student?

  • Your lessons are tailored to you and your goals.

  • We're not a dusty, static course, or a gimmicky App. We're qualified teachers, who tailor lessons specifically to help you achieve your personal music goals!

  • All of our students receive weekly private, 1:1 tuition.

  • Composition, improvisation, theory games, ear training. We've built all of this into your lessons (if you want it) so you're armed with all the tools necessary to become a pro!

  • You learn from world-class, award-winning pianists from around the globe.

  • You receive personalised feedback once a week (just like a traditional piano lesson) and if you get stuck on something mid-week, send your teacher a message and have your question answered asap.

  • Live sessions, masterclass workshops, Student of the Month awards, virtual concerts, Q+A sessions and fun ways of learning and interacting with fellow students.

  • You can do piano grades (if you wish), or just learn for fun.

  • We provide the same rigorous training and quality of education that you would expect of in-person lessons. In fact, we've even witnessed students learning 6x faster via our teacher/student video-transfer method, and believe this style of learning is actually superior to in-person lessons. But you don't have to take our word for it. Read reviews from our students to hear it from them.

  • Our vision as a music school is to provide the world's best online piano lessons, coupled with a ridiculously supportive environment, so our students (that's you!) not only receive top-notch, quality tuition, but are mentored 1:1 through every step of their musical journey, so they actually achieve your goals 🏆
