5 thoughts on “Are Piano Lessons on DVD Worth It?

  1. For years I’ve wanted to learn how to play the piano, but I don’t know where to start. Learning from DVDs is an interesting idea. I wonder if the effectiveness of this method depends on the student. Some students may thrive in this environment while others require feedback from a teacher.

    1. Hi Ellen! Yes, definitely — depends on your learning style, and also your goals as a piano student!

  2. Hello! I am a basic copy-player; I took piano lessons, but once I heard the teacher play I would play what she played without learning the notes.

    How would I overcome this?

  3. This question goes back to the invention of the printing press! Prior to that time, most people could learn only by working with someone, a teacher. But through the printing press, everyone thought that the necessary information could now be transmitted through books, as we think today through youtube and DVDs. It’s not that easy as Elizabeth notes. Teachers are a great resource, find one and learn!
