Who are the Song Video Lessons designed for?
Everyone! Each video includes the chords, signature transcribed parts and instruction on how to execute all of this - for a Beginner, Intermediate and Advanced player.
What ages can sign up?
Students of all ages are welcome to sign up! However, we'd highly recommend a parent learning alongside a student under the age of 10, as there is a steep learning curve in terms of vocabulary, skills and technology navigation.
Are the lessons live with Amber?
No. Each lesson is a pre-recorded video taught by Amber.
How long do I have access to a Song Video Lessons once I purchase it?
You will be granted 1 year access.
How much does a Song Instructional Video Cost? Can I purchase them and start at anytime?
$25/Song Video Lesson. Yes! You can purchase and start working on a song anytime you like.
What makes Amber's Video Lessons unique? Why wouldn't i just use free Youtube videos to learn? Or sign up with a weekly private instructor?
It can be hard for even the most self-motivated individuals to put the time in to practice. Unlike Youtube videos and most other Virtual music lessons, ABM Virtual students are provided with accountability through an online community where they are welcome to post their progress, weekly practice checklists, monthly checkins with a live instructor and the chance to participate in an online concert each year to ensure you stay on task and actually meet your goals! Not to mention we focus on vocal accompaniment, NOT sight reading notes on the staff, which takes a fraction of the time to learn. More on this below.
Lessons with a private instructor is obviously an amazing option...if you can afford it that is! With ABM Virtual you are receiving all of Amber's private lesson tips, tricks, methods and instruction you would get in person with her, for a fraction of the cost and multiple family members can learn simultaneously for the price of one!
Flexibility to work at your own pace. Take it slow OR for all you keeners out there, carry on throughout the summer :)
Please note, we do not spend time teaching you how to sight read notes. Learning to read music on a staff is an incredible skill to have and one we would encourage young students to develop, however how many of you adults can relate to the whole "I took piano for 5 years when I was young, hated it and can't remember a lick of what I learned"? And now you regret not being able to play right? Well, in my experience, chances are you might not stick with it even now that you appreciate it, provided you ever found the hundreds of hours it takes to learn to read music. Why?? Because it's HARD and takes years to get good enough to play anything cool. That's just the facts. However, what if I told you there was another way to play? That takes months - not YEARs to learn and is incredibly gratifying and beautiful. This is what we're offering you in our ABM Virtual Chording Sessions.
Do I need to own a real piano to sign up?
Absolutely not! A keyboard will do just fine. All you will need to get rolling is something with 88 weighted keys and a sustain pedal.
What if I sign up and am dissatisfied?
We are committed to serving you and sincerely hope you love our courses, but should you feel dissatisfied for any reason, we will provide a full refund up to 30 days after purchase. Please be sure to let us know what we can strive to do better in the future!
