The site (app) offers two ways of interaction with it's content:
The entire content of our general library is available to any new or old memnber of PianoTechnique.org at all times. The library features over 1000 videos at the moment and it constantly keeps on growing.
Your base membership fee covers access to this library and any new uploaded videos as long as your membership is active.
These videos are locked by default but can be unlocked for a small fee.
Workshop unlocking - in addition to having an active account, a student must unlock their workshop for a small fee. Unlocking includes access to videos from their workshop as well as free downloads of their own lessons, lectures, ATMs or sessions. Downloads of other participants lessons/videos are not allowed.
Unlocking price for large workshops/institutes (over 50 videos) = 25eur
Unlocking price for medium workshops/institutes (over 35 videos) = 20eur
Unlocking price for small workshops/institutes (up to 30 videos) = 15eur
In order to unlock a workshop, an in app credit must be present in your account. The system will guide you through the unlocking process and credit deposits.
All the videos uploaded to a give workshop are by default available to all of those who unlock or have access to that workshop. Since we provide access to the whole workshop rather than individual lessons, we have developed a few mechanisms available to our users.
1. Only me - a video can only be viewed by its owner.
2. All workshop participants - all workshop participants can view the video.
These video settings can be accessed as soon as video becomes available on the site or prior to video uploading and processing by a written or verbal request.
If no privacy settings are set, we will assume that videos are available to everybody who has access to the workshop, that we can use them for our regular uploads in the main library. No videos will be posted publicly or to any social sites without a written consent from the student.
In case of a special request, we can not list a given lesson/s on the workshop or privacy protect it as long as the person who made the request has an active account.
Videos availability - Alan records all the sessions, lectures, lessons, ATMs.. during his workshops/institutes and we put them all up on the website as soon as possible. Still, it might take a day, two or more. For this reason you can opt in for workshop video update notifications on every workshop page. Simply click a button and you will receive an email every time a workshop is updated. Sometimes we max out our video storage and we have to wait a few days until we can upload again. In that case, please ba patient and click that subscribe to workshop button so you can be the first one to know when we update the workshop.
All the transactions are handled by our retail partners 2checkout.com. We do not process or record any credit card information on this website.
The payments are recurring and will bill until stopped by customer or staff member for any reason.
