Freddie has been playing the piano now for just under a year. He has in-person lessons for 30 minutes weekly, but to supplement this I wanted him to have online piano lessons too.

Here I have listed all of the best online piano lessons for kids I could find. Some of these are completely FREE, but others are paid for. I have also included online 1 to 1 piano lessons that are available.
