Piano, Keyboard & Organ Lessons By Phone Or Webcam Using Skype
Along with my local students in the Pensacola, Florida area, I
am successfully conducting music lessons by phone or
webcam which makes my coaching services available
worldwide. It has been a lot of fun for me and the students.
We are very happy with the progress that is being made with
these lessons, which are equally as effective as lessons in
I am using Skype, a free download that allows me to call my
students by phone for free in the US & Canada. It's also free
to talk computer to computer with or without web cam
anywhere in the world using Skype. For most phone lessons
outside the US it only costs about 2 cents per minute, so I pay
for those calls.
I have beginner, intermediate as well as more advanced
students, ages 8 to 87. Many adult students even into their
80's are beginners who thought they could never play and find
now that not only they can, but they are and enjoying it
immensely. Age is not an issue when using the right methods.
I teach each according to each students specific needs and
desires. I cover the things that I would normally teach in person
that can't be covered in self-study home study courses and
that most traditional teachers don't teach or know about.
The main thrust is to have each student learn to play the way
they really want to play, but have not been able to achieve this
for one reason or another.
Some people are more comfortable with a phone or webcam
lesson rather than having a teacher in person. This also
allows you to have your lessons in the comfort and privacy of
your own home. No need to waste time and fight traffic to get
to and from lessons, besides avoiding inclement weather. A
large majority of people live in an area where there is no
teacher to teach them the things they really want.
Phone and webcam lessons works equally as well as lessons
in person as I teach the same way in each instance and also
have the same interaction between myself and the students.
While the webcam is a nice added touch, phone lessons work
just as well. A webcam is not necessary unless you prefer to
do it this way. It just allows the student and I to see each
other. Lessons by phone works very well and is more than
adequate to gain the benefits by these coaching sessions.

If you have any questions concerning these lessons, how you
could benefit from them, how Skype works or anything else,
please contact me. If you like, you can include your phone
number and in what country you live and I can give you a call
for a free consultation. I believe you will find the concept and
lessons interesting, very enjoyable and highly effective to
achieve what you have always really wanted to do on your
“Dear Scott: I want to thank you for getting in touch with me about taking lessons by way of the telephone. Needless to say, I was skeptical as to how this could possibly work, but the idea intrigued me and I decided, that I had nothing to loose by giving it a try. With the addition of a very affordable head-piece for my telephone and setting aside the time each week to take your call, it has by far proven to be not only workable, but I have learned so much in the process. I feel like you are sitting beside me while I am at the organ and the time just flies by. Thank you again for thinking of me and including me in your desire to bring better playing skills to those of us who love our organ and desire to play it better. You have made a believer of me and have gained a new friend. Sincerely, Trudy L, " Panama City, FL
“Hey my friend! I just wanted to thank you. You went way above the call of duty, and I really appreciate it. Out of all the services I belong to, you stand out more than anyone. I wish there were more guys out there like you. Thank you again. Your dedication to helping people was touching. Have a great day and I hope we get to speak soon.” Michael L, Fall River, MA
Bett M from Bonita Springs, FL, which is 9 hours and 612 miles away has this to say about our phone lessons:
“I just wanted to drop a note to tell you how much I am enjoying and learning from our “long distance” keyboard piano lessons together. At first, I was dubious about taking lessons via the telephone, a really new concept, but it's working. You call me at the designated time each week, I answer the phone, adjust my headset, and boom, we begin our lessons, it's as simple as that. And I think it has helped me to develop my musical ear because I am relying on really listening to the music. This method is serving me well. Thanks so much, not only for the lessons but for helping me with the technical things I need to know abou the keyboard and other related music questions.”
