Get Live Online Piano Lessons
with Talc Tolchin

Learn piano in the comfort of your own living room!

I offer personal piano lessons through computer video conferencing via  Skype or Oovoo, which makes the lessons available to those whose schedule or location makes it hard to travel to a teacher.

I also have a camera on my keyboard so you can see what I'm playing during the piano phone lessons. My method is to accelerate your learning process through patient disciplining, acknowledging your efforts and accomplishments, and coaching you through difficult times.

The first lesson is FREE. There is no risk, no obligation to you. Once you have Skype set up, take a FREE lesson and find out if it feels like a good match.
