Piano lessons using Skype have exceeded my expectations
Review of Skype piano Lessons   22/8/20 Piano lessons using Skype have exceeded my expectations After Covid 19 lockdown I was  thrilled to able to resume lessons  with Clifford using the newly developed Skype Studio. I have been having traditional lessons at Marycliff Piano Lessons since October 2017 where the standard of teaching is of very high quality. Initially I was a little sceptical about Skype lessons, thinking they could never be as effective and enjoyable as traditional face-to face lessons. I am delighted to say that my progress has continued at the same rate. In fact I have found that this format helps you to concentrate better, and you seem to get more done in the lesson. When Clifford is demonstrating a technique or playing a piece of music, the cameras focuses in very closely on the keyboard so that you can see and understand  very clearly. A floating camera also gives me a birds-eye view of the keyboard and it can zoom in closely on the hands or on the musical score. The picture and the sound quality is surprisingly good, as if I am there in the music room. The opportunity to continue with the lessons is a huge bonus for me and I can recommend this  facility to any  potential pupils. Clifford teaches and plays with his heart and soul.This is  so evident  in the lesson and is really motivating.   Charlotte  ( Adult learner since October 2017)
