I love watching the videos from my online piano students. I can give them specific, personal feedback through the video exchange feature - this makes their online piano lessons more productive. They become better players, sooner.

Piano lessons for kids just got a high tech "shot in the arm" - classical piano study now propelled by leading edge video technology. Creator of the renowned Peery Piano Method, Christie Peery Skousen has partnered with ArtistWorks Inc. to create the most groundbreaking online piano school for children and young players today. Christie teaches her online piano students through personal video exchange lessons using the very latest innovation from ArtistWorks that combines learning for kids with a bit of social networking for the parents. PeeryPiano.com uses a simple, kid-friendly video exchange system that gives online piano students direct, personal feedback from virtuoso teacher, Christie Peery Skousen. The combined effect of a rigorous piano school and video exchanges results in the most effective way to learn an instrument: repetition of piano lessons and personal feedback from a virtuoso.
PeeryPiano.com boasts a full curriculum of online piano classes that begins with the first moment a child places their fingers on the keyboard to students preparing for an audition, but includes homeschool children, conservatory preparation as well as adult piano lessons. As Liszt and Beethoven taught, Christie Peery teaches how to play the piano correctly from the very beginning of lessons. Critical to her Method is structuring the piano student's practice routine. Students complete a full list of daily online piano lesson requirements in order to accomplish a high level of playing in a reasonable amount of time. Instructions from Christie include mastering the fingerings, expression, rhythm and notes of all studies, exercises, scales and formal classical piano pieces - all practiced at specific speeds. At pivotal learning points in the Method, Christie requires the students to submit a video for her assessment. In turn, she responds with a video or written evaluation and both are released on the site so that the entire community of online piano students learn from this exchange between virtuoso and budding pianist. To create additional incentive as well as instill accomplishment, Peery students track their practice time on their "5,000 hour Practice Countdown Clock" that logs each 10-minute practice session included in their Chart. Supporting the learning process is a fully featured social network, including Chat, Forums, Personal Student Pages for parents to connect, showcase their child's talent and get guidance on how best to encourage their young student to learn piano online.
