Online Lessons and Masterclass Sessions

 


Too many have suffered from piano teachers who haven't been able to inspire and teach the most integral aspects necessary for positive results. Mike Garson has taught over 12,000 individual piano lessons and has the unique ability to right those wrongs, inspire each student, and place them on a path of success.

Mike enjoys offering online piano lessons and consultations. These lessons take place over Zoom direct from his studio equipped with cameras from various angles to be able to provide a view of his fingers as he guides you through lessons in a way that only he is able to.  As an extra bonus, after each session, you'll also receive a video of your lesson for your private use and to assist in your practice plan between lessons. 

The regularity of your lessons are based on your goals, budget, and schedule. Many students schedule lessons regularly - often once or twice a month. Others come for a single lesson returning occasionally over the years for a brush-up or inspiration. For more information and to sign up for your lesson with Mike, click here.
