From your site : -

If you prove beyond reasonable doubt that you are not bright enough to comprehend simple instruction, a full 100% refund will not only be granted, but possibly offered by the instructor!


From your post today..

Quote:
His posts revealed he was not following instructions.


So you'll be giving him a refund then, as per your refund policy quoted from your site? He didn't follow instructions, according to you.

After a cursory glance at your site, I was taken aback with the price for access. Almost $200 for access to videos? I take it you've never heard of Youtube!? Perhaps all the videos there are for people "bright" enough to stay away from your site.

Lypur's channel looks more and more generous every day.

This isn't meant as an attack on your business. It's just grating that rather than attend to an unhappy customer, you instead come here and try and call him out. I'd hazard a guess he's not the only person who asked for a refund.

This forum does seem to have become affected with drive-by posts spamming (or in your case vigorously defending) their businesses.

This discussion about which online piano course is best, seems to come up regularly. I can't say and I believe it's hard to tell which of them is best. Most of them probably have their advantages and disadvantages.

I've got Piano For All and Rocket Piano so I can at least testify about those two. They're just fine and in both cases you get a lot of material for 40 dollars. I've emailed the staff at Rocket Piano a few times for advice, and they've been very helpful.

I agree with some here that Rocket Piano is more geared towards absolute beginners, although a beginner could benefit a lot from Piano For All. We also know that much of the material in those online courses can be found for free, but that takes more work and time, which is also money in most cases.

Finally, about refund policy. This is quite new to me, because it seems consumer rights are so much more respected in USA and elsewhere in Europe (Eurozone,) than in my country.

Still this seems a bit strange, because the seller of an online course has no guarantee the buyer who asks for a refund will not keep the course material on his hard disk and continue to use it. So I'm not sure if I would make use of this option, even if I thought the course was not for me.
