Piano Software Courses Vs Piano Tuition Books (Part 2)


Visitors: 246

In part one of this two-part article, we discussed the benefits and drawbacks of using tuition books to learn how to play the piano or keyboard. In part two we will look at piano software courses. Why they are so popular and how they compare against tuition books.

The benefits of piano software courses

The immediate benefit is that you can get it so fast. If you find a piano course you want and it's located on the other side of the world in another country, no problem, you can download it to your computer in a matter of seconds.

Piano courses include audio and video files which can explain, as a piano teacher would, the things that on you own, you might not quite grasp and you can get a video file to explain things to you as many times as you wish until you understand it. It's like having your own personal piano teacher with you all the time.

The drawbacks of piano software courses

It's difficult to find any drawback with these courses. I could say the cost, because they are more expensive than tuition books, but most, if not all of them have a money back guarantee. I suppose the only drawback is that initially you need a computer to download the course and to play the audio and video files and obviously a printer to print out your songs to play on your keyboard or piano.


If cost is an issue then tuition books are a good option, but you must learn the basics first. Software, in my opinion the absolute best way to go, with help from audio and video files your more likely to succeed. Whatever method you choose enjoy you piano playing. As soon as you have played your first song, you will get greedy for it. There really is nothing like sitting down at a keyboard and playing a piece of music, and its not as difficult as you might imagine.
