"Learning online is fun and easy" says Weiss

-- What's the chance of making a living teaching piano online? Not much at all. But don't tell that to online teacher Edward Weiss who has been teaching people how to play piano from the Internet since 2002. Weiss comments on his longevity…
"I cater to a specific audience that wants to learn how to improvise on the piano. While this is taught offline, it's not nearly as convenient as finding lessons online and then being able to take them from the comfort of home. That's a hard combination to beat."
Weiss may be right as more and more are finding what they're looking for in cyberspace. Another benefit of learning online is the savings. When it comes to learning piano, the fees can range anywhere from $30 an hour to over $60 an hour. As Weiss himself says on his piano site, that can add up to a lot over time.Do students get the same kind of treatment online as off? Weiss remarks…
"I use video and step by step instruction to give students the ability to learn at their own pace. This is a good thing because a lot of piano teachers rush over important concepts that allow for creative expression. Students are able to take their time and really learn."
Weiss must be doing something right. Most of the businesses that venture online end up failing. Virtual businesses come and go, but this one seems to have staying power.
