Is learning to play the piano online really easier?
It is no small task for beginners learning to play the piano, guitar or any instrument. Not only do you have to learn the aspects and functions of your instrument, but how to read music, understand music theory AND there is proper technique in your movements or the way you play the piano. Often times when young children are learning to play the piano it is very difficult for them to retain the knowledge and it helps having an experienced piano teacher to help refresh and give them information in a way that they understand. Every student learns in their own way.
Watching tutorials online you may try to mimic what you see, but it lacks the ability of a real piano teacher to correct your hand posture, the way you use the pedal and fingering (which is very important). Having a piano teacher there to show you and explain subtle differences and technique is invaluable. You will find that it is much easier to learn when you have someone teaching you the right way. Whether you are a beginner that needs to be shown, or perhaps even moved so that the method is performed correctly; or you are an advanced piano student who is trying to perfect and master advanced music it is very helpful to have a skillful piano teacher who is able to critique you correctly.
There is not one way fits all. Every person learns in their own unique way. An excellent piano teacher studies their student and customizes each lesson in order to reach their student. When watching tutorials for learning how to play the piano online, you can’t ask them to explain a concept that you didn’t understand… you will have to try and look that up as well. The whole process is extremely time consuming and takes a lot more patience than it would to just ask your teacher what you are supposed to do, or what does that music term or symbol mean.
Enjoy playing the piano
You probably think, but I want to learn to play only what I want to learn, and a piano teacher wouldn't do that. You are right, you still need to learn technique, music theory and how to read music before you get to those songs you love. Tammie’s Music Studio loves letting all our piano students, from beginner through advanced students, learn to play pieces of music that they are interested in. Not only do our talented piano teachers customize lessons so that the student enjoys learning, but they make sure that there is technique behind it and that the student is able to play it correctly.

It will be very difficult to become an advanced level pianist without proper instruction.
Can my child learn to play piano online?
Some kids are able to pick up some things via You Tube. But because there are questions, the video won't be able to help them like a piano teacher could. If a child has a question a piano teacher can explain and demonstrate to the child until they understand and can perform the task.
It is very overwhelming for a child to learn an instrument. Whether the child had passion to begin with it can soon be tainted and turned to a dislike because of frustration of not being able to grasp something. Piano lessons for young children are taught in a way that is fun but also that they are able to understand. Varying on each student’s age and skill level piano lessons are customized to fit their learning styles and progress at a rate that is optimal for their success!
It's probably more for the parents and grandparents rather than the children. But an added benefit of piano lessons of the recitals. You really don't want to miss out on those. Recitals give students of all ages and skill levels to perform for audiences. It helps motivate students to reach a level of perfection and mastery of pieces of music.
