Opinions about the site


Recently (2023), a new American student sent me a message that surprised me. After four lessons by video, he wrote to me:
“I ended my local lessons. My interaction with your instruction has been far more productive and beneficial.”

Other recent opinions can be found in the numerous comments on my YouTube videos:

Example 1    Example 2,    Example 3,    Example 4...

Below are some of the oldest, dating back to 2012 when I published the first version of this website.


A few words to begin - why this particular site?


A few words to begin…

Not so long ago ago, I would not have believed that I would be giving piano lessons via the Internet with such good results (cf. opinions from my students ). It would seem that, after fulfilling certain important conditions, this method is excellent, offering the students an exceptional efficiency in their work. What is more, online coaching motivates them to develop a strict discipline in organizing their practice sessions.

What is my method?


My Piano coaching by audio / video analysis includes everything that a pianist needs to succeed:

  • piano technique (theory and practice),
  • interpretation,
  • organization of work and rest,
  • memorisation techniques,
  • how to cope with stage fright,
  • preparation of concerts / competitions / exams.

For an experienced pianist, pianistic movements are as natural as breathing. On the other hand, students use many unnecessary movements, often neglecting or unaware of the essential ones.

Example: how do my lessons by video take place?


chopin opus 47 bars 1 5

I usually have live lessons with Mark. But when he played me Chopin’s 3rd Ballade, I decided that the optimal solution to correct all the details was a video/mail lesson. Here are the instructions I sent him by mail after watching the video received. This text covers the first 54 bars of the piece only. The listening and analysis of the video and the response by mail (24 points) took me 1h12.
I can’t imagine how long a live lesson with all these details would take. Not to mention the student’s endurance, his/her resistance to fatigue and how much his/her memory could retain!
