Hi Guys,
Would you recommend learning piano in an online course?
I don't have a lot of money and teachers cost too much!
I've come across this Pianoforall course and it seems good.
Would love to hear your opinion about this course, have you heard of it before? It does look good but I would love your feedback. Thanks!

Many people do learn to play by using online courses. Some even learn specific tunes by watching people play on Youtube. I would hope that a proper online course would give better understanding than just watching Youtube videos.

I had not heard of Pianoforall courses until I saw your post so obviously I have no experience to give any advice. However there seems to be lots of reviews of the courses from other people when you Google Pianoforall.

When I started to play piano again after a gap of twenty years not playing I had forgotten how to read a bass (f) clef completely and only could remember where middle C was on the treble (g) clef. The internet hadn't been invented so I worked it all out by myself and slowly got back into playing over the next 5 or 6 years. When I eventually started with a teacher I was immediately told I was hammering the keys too much, my hands, wrists and elbows were not relaxed enough. In other words by trying to learn myself I had acquired some bad playing habits.

A good online course needs to help you from falling into a poor playing technique but this should be achievable.
