Online learning is a fast growing way that pupils are choosing to learn music. Its a very modern way of learning and has a huge amount of benefits .

Here are our top 5!

1. You can learn whatever instrument you want!

Music lessons an sometimes be restricted by the location of the student or the tutor  whereas online lessons opens up a world of tutors to you – For Key Lessons, we have tutors all over the UK who teach rare instruments so online lessons instantly gives you access to them, even if you dont live close to them.


Also for large instruments, you would need space for both your instrument and the tutors instrument in the room, whereas online lessons mean as long as you have space for you and your instrument, then you can have a lesson!

So you can therefore learn whatever instrument you want as you can always find a tutor online, somewhere in the uk or the world , who would be able to have online lessons with you.

2. Comfort.

 You will not be bound to physical class session when you opt for online education. All lectures and needed materials are provided via online platforms, so you’ll easily access them from the comfort of your home. You will not take public transport to get to a studio (or need to dress particularly nicely!) the list of conveniences goes on and on.

3.Music lessons look great on school and university applications, and CV’s

Music lessons have always looked good on application forms: showing commitment and study to something outside of the mandatory curriculum shows someone willing to learn and develop. It will show potential employers that you’re committed to learning and you’re eager to obtain more knowledge and new skills. Hiring managers will see that you have more strings to your bow (excuse the pun!) and its a great conversation starter, particularly at an interview if you have forgotten what to say!

4. Self-paced learning.

 Self-paced learning means that the students can start completing the targets at any time, and he can arrange a learning schedule that meets his individual needs.

A self-paced system enables them to make progress with rhythm that suits them. This type of system does not require attending live sessions; you can access the materials at any time that works for you. If you have to work or take care of your home and children during the day, you can study at night. All work content is also easily available to you via email  or other methods. You can print the work at home, work or even just read the music from a screen so learning online really hasn’t got any issues when it comes to accessing information.

5. Lower costs.

Key Lessons offers music lessons online at a cheaper rate to take into account the time and money a tutor usually spends travelling from one student to the next. This works out better for the student if you are looking for a way to have cheaper music lessons and can save the tutor some time on the tube or driving their car that day!

So both parties win!


So in summary: if you are thinking that online lessons aren’t for you, why not give it a try? We offer a free trial session so you can try it out with no obligation.

We currently have many online clients- ranging from parents who work from home and want their children to be studying something in another room once a week, to people with physical  or learning disabilities, the aged etc. Whatever your reason for wanting online lessons, it is a valid one!
The best thing about online learning is that you can learn in a relaxed manner even if you don’t want to pass exams. You only need passion for learning and the motivation to keep learning. That being said, having weekly lessons online seems to have the same effect as attending physical lessons in that the need to show the tutor what you have been working on still pushes most students to practice in the week and progress every lesson.
