Piano student
You want the the best music education

Finding the right teacher in your neighborhood can be hard and lessons are expensive with the added hassles of carpools and scheduling. Now I offer my home studio lessons online, solving those problems without sacrificing quality.

Piano From Home is for you

You can take piano lessons from your own home. I provide weekly instruction and feedback, using the same curriculum I teach in my home studio. Learn on your own schedule. These lessons are not a one-time purchase because they are regular lessons, with a teacher who is involved and cares about your progress.

I’ve taught over 1,500 students to play

These are real piano lessons for all ages, with a real teacher using a method that is fun because it allows for rapid progress. Have you ever wanted to see what your child is learning in class? These lessons allow you to learn with them.

What Are Teacher Guided Online Lessons?

Teacher guided means this is not your typical video course.  You will be interacting with a real teacher who cares about your progress.

What parents are saying

“As a working mom, being able to throw in a load of laundry or start dinner while my son is taking his piano lessons is wonderful. Coralie is a great teacher. I realized these lessons were working when we had friends over for dinner and my son played so well for them. They were surprised to hear he learns online because he plays better than their older child.”

-Jennifer Conner

“My daughter’s schedule was inflexible because we spend so much time involved with soccer club. Piano From Home lessons have been concise and to the point. She recently performed in her 3rd grade talent show and her skill set clearly out-shined the 5th grade piano participants.”

-Steve Jensen

Meet Your Teacher

I’m a California native who loves homemade bread, kayaking at Lake Tahoe, and cross-country skiing. I’m also a Mom of four and a Grandma to two little boys.

I began teaching piano at 14 after spending my childhood practicing and performing. I’m a teacher on a mission to help you read music & play the piano. I provide affordable and easy lessons for everyone with a desire to learn.

I am thrilled to share my REAL piano lessons with you. They come straight from my studio, directly to your home. My method works, and these 3-6 minute videos are the fundamentals of traditional piano lessons. I’ve used these exact methods to teach more than a 1,500 students in my own home.

Now you can learn to read music & play piano on your own schedule and still have your piano teacher available to answer questions as needed! Can’t wait to meet you and get you started on your piano playing journey.

Sincerely,
Coralie Harless

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Do I need a piano?

Of course every piano teacher would love for a student to have a real piano, but a keyboard works just fine.  Look for one with at least 61 keys, counting blacks and whites.

Q: Can I check it out before enrolling?

Sure. Just click the “TRY FREE LESSON” button at the bottom of this page.

Q: What is the Cost?

Monthly tuition is only $79.99. You may cancel within the first 30 days and get a full refund. There is no long term obligation. The beginner course includes the online videos along with downloadable sheet music and worksheets. Intermediate and advanced students may need to purchase additional books or sheet music from 3rd parties like Amazon.

Q: How much time is required of Parents?

This all depends on your student. A 5-6 year old will require more time than an 8 year old. Parents ensure their child’s  success by setting daily practice times. Video lessons are only a few minutes long. Ideally, parents will watch the lesson and get their child practicing the first day and then be available to communicate with the teacher as necessary. Parents will help with making and sending audio recordings.

Q: How much practice will it take?

Practice is the magic that allows piano students to succeed. It’s not hard, it simply takes repetition.  Recommended practice is 15-20 minutes a day, 4-6 days per week. This can be broken into shorter sessions for younger learners.

Q: How old should a student be to begin lessons & what about adults?

This is a beginner course for children & adults. Children who can read even a simple sentence (and are able to sit and practice) can learn how to play here. The earliest ages (5 – 6) will require more parental help. Ages 7 – adult have the best success.

My Experience:  We have 4 children. I started the first 2 when they were 4 & 5. I’m a consistent parent, the children practiced 7 days a week for 15 minutes. We started our other 2 when they were older and began to read. The difference? What took the younger beginners 16 months, the older beginners learned in 14 weeks.  The older beginners were able to practice far more on their own but our younger beginners required parent help every day. The older beginners advanced quickly and could see their progress. They responded to new challenges well whereas the younger beginners advanced slowly and were unable to recognize their growth.
