What do you get: first you need to send me one or two short videos of yourself performing your assignments or repertoire. If you can describe where you think you need guidance (bar number in a piece, beat number, right hand / left hand, indecision about choice of fingering, etc.) all the better. The total length of the videos should not exceed 5 minutes.
After having watched your videos I will make a response video highlighting troublesome spots, suggesting solutions, practice tips and strategies, fixes, effective fingerings. I will then send the video to you for viewing and taking on board the suggestions I make in your subsequent practice sessions.
You can be flexible with how often you decide to take this type of class, and only send me a video when you feel ready.
While being technically an “Offline” activity, as we do not meet in real time, I find this option beneficial for all those people who might feel particularly self-conscious about performing live in front of someone, even if the audience is their piano teacher. However, I believe it suits best students of intermediate and advanced level who have a well established and effective practice strategy and routine, and only need guidance on specific aspects of their assignments that they find difficult to overcome on their own.

If you wish to take piano exams: I can sign you up for them and follow you all the way to diploma level.
If you do not wish to take piano exams: I will be asking you lots of questions about what music you like and what you listen to, ultimately to understand what music you would like to be able to play on the piano. Once I get that input from you I can start planning your musical journey and give you assignments accordingly.
