Tip 1: The course must be reputable.
Make sure the course that you’re choosing is one that has a good reputation. Do a search on google or your favorite search engine and read reviews, feedback from other users and expert reviewers. You may also want to go to piano forums and post a question about the particular online piano course that you’re interested in. Find out how long they’ve been around and the satisfaction level of its past and current users.
Tip 2: The course must go beyond just the basics.
Some online piano courses only focus on the basics and leave you hanging. If you wish to continue, then you must order another course in order to progress further. Some authors use this tactic as bait. They might price the course very low and then upsell when the student is done with the initial course. Look for an online course that goes beyond the basic level, at a reasonable price, of course.
Tip 3: Is the course well rounded?
Ask yourself this question when choosing an online piano course. The course must be well rounded, meaning it covers theory, sight reading, chord construction, ear training, improvisation and various musical genres. A well rounded course translates into a well rounded musician. You may choose to focus on one area at the time, but it’s always a good idea to learn as much as you can about all areas of music. It’ll give you a broader perspective and knowledge about music.
Tip 4: Test drive the course by subscribing to its newsletter.
Some authors offer free mini courses to subscribers. Take advantage of this. Test drive these lessons and notice the quality of the information. Is it well written and easy to understand? Does it have plenty of diagrams and audio/video files for you to follow?
Tip 5: Do they offer a money back guarantee?
Make sure the author offers a money back guarantee. It’s easy to get sucked into a slick salesletter about an online piano course that over promises but under delivers. If that’s the case, you want to make sure you get your money back. So if you’re unhappy with the course, you can ask for a refund. Guarantees vary among courses, but you want to look for at least a 60 day refund period. This will give you ample time to examine the course thoroughly.
