Loved by the parents

Check out what are parents saying about us

Before my daughter started lessons with you, I had to help her with the piano practice everyday and she was often frustrated. Now, she is so independent and can practice by herself! And naturally, she really enjoys playing piano. We can't be happier!

Norene, Mother of 6 year old

You are such a gifted teacher, and I'm so impressed with your online teaching skills! You have been our sunshine during this rainy, gray and difficult month.

Loretta, Mother of 10 year old

My daughter learns so much from you and not just musically. Poise, presentation, public speaking, problem solving..

Frequently asked questions

Music & Online

Can online classes for music work?
Traditionally, music has always been taught offline. At Pixical, we have created a unique platform, from the grounds up, where the quality of learning could be better than offline classes for multiple reasons.
  • Teachers are able to show piano angles that was not possible in a physical setup.
  • The custom built platform has all the necessary resources inbuilt into the lesson (e.g. Music sheets, Metronome etc) - Lesser distraction.
  • Notes, Recordings, Resources are all available post class which makes focussed practice easier. No printouts ever.
  • Lastly, we have gamified the entire experience via pop songs, points & rewards which makes the entire process fun & exciting.
It's been a tough 12 months for kids zooming all year long. I am not sure whether I should put my children through online classes this summer.
Zoom was not built for learning, and we all have our stories of Zoom fatigue. Every touchpoint of the program - be it the platform, curriculum, lesson design - has been dictated by the twin objectives of Fun & Learning. So, worry not - A 30 min session will be enriching & exciting at the same time.
What are the benefits of Pixical compared to other online learning programs?
We have designed a modern program for the future combining the best of technology & pedagogy. Students need to have fun while learning, and we want to stay true to that objective. Our teachers personalise the learning objectives and outcomes for every student to make the pedagogy effective.
What ages and what types of curriculum does Pixical offer?
We offer the program from Ages 5 to 15. We have taken the best out of the piano method books - Be it Faber, Alfred or Micheal Aaron. If you are interested in a specific method, please reach out during our onboarding call, and we will ensure the same.
We don't have a piano. Can we use a keyboard and what kind should we purchase?
Starting off on a keyboard is just fine. However, the sooner you can upgrade, the better.
Please go to a music store near you with your child to purchase your instrument vs buying one online. It's an experience, along with your support, that will drive the importance and will to practice. Make it a family field trip & this memory can make all the difference.

Teacher related

Are the teachers equipped to handle kids?
The teachers have been specially hired to make sure they can teach kids - We look for these traits - Patience, Encouraging, Helpful, Friendly, Engaging & Fun along with functional expertise on the piano. Our teachers believe that the teaching should meet where the kids are, rather than follow a strict lesson plan.
Have the teachers taught online?
Yes, we have recruited teachers who have years of online teaching experience, and have adapted to the online medium quickly.

Course related

What are the pre-requisites for me to sign up for the course?
  • A keyboard or a piano
  • A laptop with a Chrome browser
  • A good Internet broadband connection
Can I reschedule a class?
Yes, you will be able to reschedule the class without any charges.
Can my child attend class without their video/audio enabled?
Without audio & video, it will be extremely tough to conduct the classes. If you are concerned about any specific needs, please reach out to hey@pixical.com and we will be able to help you out on the same.
How much practice is necessary?
Practice is very important for learning. We recommend 10-20 minutes of practice every day, and because of the gamified experience on the platform, we are confident that the children themselves will attend to it.
What books do I need and where do I get them?
The teacher will guide you to the right method book to purchase.
Do you have recitals?
We have studio performances where your child is encouraged to come & perform.
Is it possible to take a free trial lesson?
Yes, of course. Please register and schedule a free trial lesson above.
Can I record my live lessons to watch them again later?
All parents will have access to an app where you can see the recording, notes and access resources.
On which days and times can I schedule lessons?
We are very flexible with the time and we will schedule the same post the course registration.
