Take Online Tap Lessons With Me, Terrence Taps

Happy 2013 everyone…let’s start this year on a different foot!

I’m offering a new live online tap lesson series starting next week and would love for you to attend!

You’ll be learning tap steps I’ve set to “The Sound of Sunshine” by Michael Franti & Spearheads. I chose this song because I can use a little sun here in the dead of Winter!


Here are the details:

Cost: Just $15

Length of Class: Approx. 50 minutes

Spaces Available: 9 Max per class

Levels offered: Basic, Level 1, & Level 2. Scroll down for an explanation of each level and the lesson schedule.

How does it work?

I’ll teach these lessons live on Skype. Each level is being offered 9 times next week so you should have no trouble finding one that fits your schedule. When you register, be sure to include your Skype username as a comment on the transaction. Without this information I will be unable to invite you into the class. If you don’t have a Skype account, don’t worry it’s simple. Sign up for a FREE account here. Please note that Skype video calls are also free so you do not need to purchase minutes or credits.

Find your skill level below and select the time that is most convenient! The schedule is set to Eastern Standard Time.

Basic Tap Lessons – This level is best for those who have little to no knowledge of tap. If you’ve never tap danced before, sign up for one of these. Tap shoes for this level are optional if you just want to try it out.

Level 1 Tap Lessons – If you are already comfortable with basic tap steps, this is the level for you. This is also a good place to start if you haven’t danced in many years. Here we’ll experiment with putting steps together in novel ways. Finally, if you’re normally an intermediate level student but have had little exposure to rhythm tap, you might want to test this level out as well.

Level 2 Tap Lessons – If you are normally comfortable in intermediate classes or above, you’ll probably get the most out of this level. Here I assume that you have mastered all of the basics so we can just focus on making music with our feet!
