A course is a good way to boost your daily practice.
My experience as a participant
In the past, as a student myself, these courses were an unmissable event of my Summer. I – or should I say, my parents – would pay a little fortune for me to learn from an international pianist. These courses were the best way to meet some renowned teachers, who could have helped you to prepare for a competition. It was wonderful: I would spend my days practising the piano and attend masterclasses. The comments made by my teachers were sacred, as I wold profoundly trust and admire these talented musicians.
As a young musician, I was only focusing on developing my musical opportunities, forgetting that these academies were terribly overpriced!
I also realised that some of them were more focused on their financial profit rather than on my musical development. Of course, not all academies are huge ‘musicians’ factory’! You can also meet wonderful teachers!

However, it is my personal experience that encouraged me to create an intimate and friendly piano course. The Online Piano Summer Academy was born! I wanted to provide an affordable course, in which pianists from all age and levels would meet to develop their skills.

Courses for Pianists: how to choose the right one?
Here is my 3 top tips:
- Being a virtuoso doesn’t mean you can teach! Your tutor should have a real passion for teaching.
- Have a close look at the course timetable. Are the tuitions tailored to my own need?
- Privilege smaller course. The teachers will be dedicated to you. You will be able to interact with him/her more!
