Thank you all for your recommendations. Much appreciated.
I'll preface this message by saying I'm in no way affiliated with Pianote. I paid in full for my subscription. Also I feel my opinion has some worth as I already tried a couple of somewhat similar plateforms, like playground sessions (lifetime member), piano marvel, and skoove. Not saying any of them are bad. Just that I can see the value in this year commitment.
In the end, I went with Pianote. For a couple of great reasons.
First, they offer unlimited piano performance reviews. Meaning they will actually listen and look at your video performances and do video reviews with pointers at how to improve. You can even write your goals for a particular performance and they will focus on the things you struggle the most or wish to improve. This alone is an impressive value.
The main teacher is viciously positive and charismatic. She is also a great singer and include background vocals for songs.
The teaching is quite different and enjoyable. She teaches by chord progression charts and I find that very refreshing. It is quite different than a classical approach. Also, the quality of the lessons are stellar, both in content and in visual quality. Oh and a nice touch was the introduction of pedalling very early. With a visual representation of pedal depressing.
The community is very active on forums and in the comment section of each lessons.
Last but definitly not least, they are a Canadian company and they support piano teaching in schools which is very awesome !
Just wanted to come back and do a quick review of my choice for this year and the reasons why I chose Pianote.
Cheers and happy learning !
