3. What is not included in the membership?

The PCA membership does not include:

  • Unlimited individual piano guidance;
  • Piano discussions via email with me or my assistants;
  • Downloading our videos (they can only be watched online for as long as you remain a member).

Here is why the first two features are not included in the PCA membership:

1. Unlimited individual piano guidance.

Think about it: if I would spend my entire day chatting with our members (or answering complex questions)… no tutorials would ever get recorded, and PCA would not exist in the first place!

Simply put – I can either offer individual guidance to 10-20 people (which would take my entire time)… or I can create high-quality tutorials that can make a difference for thousands of people, for many years to come. 

A less important (yet still relevant) reason is the very affordable price: as a member of PCA, you pay a maximum of $47 per month (the yearly fee is even cheaper). The price of an individual piano lesson with a teacher of my level (Conservatory graduate, Masters degree, 30+ years of experience) ranges between $100 and $200 USD per 45 minutes. The math is quite simple :P.

Therefore, I cannot be there for you 24/7, guiding you every step of the way. Still, you can ask short questions about our existing tutorials – and I will be happy to help!

You can also share your recordings and get weekly feedback from our amazing guest teacher Yuko Agata Farman! 8)

2. Piano discussions via email, phone or Skype with me or my assistants.

This restriction only applies to piano guidancenot to customer support! You can always ask customer support questions via emailwithout ANY limitations – and you will get a timely reply from my assistants!

WHY is piano guidance via email/Skype/phone not included in the membership? For the same reasons explained above! Imagine that you’re a member of PCA and you’re eagerly waiting for the next Lesson from our Beginner Course (or the next Masterpiece tutorial etc.). Wouldn’t you be disappointed if instead of designing/recording/editing/publishing the promised lesson, I would chat via email/Skype/phone with some of our members, neglecting my work and letting down our entire community? I believe in 100% transparent work accountability – and all our members know that my entire work time is dedicated to them!
