Online Guitar, Bass, Piano, Vocal, and Ukulele Lessons

These days, you can take online music lessons from an expert even if your teacher is miles away! With free videoconferencing technologies such as Skype or FaceTime, you can see your teacher and your teacher can see you. Because your teacher can help you with hand position, playing style, you can learn the right technique no matter where you are!

Silver Music Studios offers guitar, bass, piano, vocal, and ukulele lessons online via videoconference. This is a great option for people who live outside the area, people whose schedules don’t permit them to travel to the studio, or high school students who want to continue studying after they’ve left the area to attend university.

(Update: do we even have to mention the new reason to take lessons online? This page was created before the coronavirus outbreak, but we’ll keep that last part up because brighter days are ahead!)

How do online lessons work?

Just about every computer, tablet, and phone sold today can run free videoconferencing software, either Skype (available on all platforms), FaceTime (built-in on Apple devices) or another similar technology platform. If you have a computer, tablet, or phone, a reasonably good Internet connection, and a guitar then you already have everything you need to learn to play guitar, bass, piano or ukulele!*

Thanks to these new technologies, you can get a great music education without ever having to visit the studio! We can send you sheet music via email or digital download and we offer online payments, so even if you can’t make it to us, we have you covered!

How do I start my online music lessons?

To get you started, Silver Music Studios offers a free consultation for online students. During this consultation, we’ll get connected, talk over your interests and goals, and discuss how an online learning plan can help you become the musician you always wanted to be (but couldn’t get to the studio for lessons!).

What platforms are supported?

We have been providing online music lessons via Skype and FaceTime for years, and recently have added support for Zoom and Google Duo. Different platforms work for different people, and we’ll find the right technology mix to meet your needs.

* note that while you can have online lessons using your phone, we recommend a device with a larger screen, such as a laptop or home computer.
