Unfortunately, the disadvantages of online video tutorials far outweigh the advantages.
I’ve lost count in the number of students who I have taught who have tried to teach themselves how to play piano via YouTube Piano Tutorials with little success.
Unfortunately, anyone with a little bit of piano playing ability, a camcorder and a YouTube account can upload their own piano tutorials.
Let me give you my short list of problems with most online tutorials and the countless so-called online instructors:
I could go on and on, but the bad habits that are being created from the lack of any real instruction, are habits that will not be easily fixed for many of these YouTube students who may one day decide to get proper instruction from a qualified professional piano teacher.
I can truly say that this has become an epidemic.
Fortunately, the consequences are not fatal, and I doubt it will make headline news any time soon.
However, as a full-time piano teacher, I’m seeing an alarming trend that doesn’t bode well for this Internet generation, and the generations to come.
