I have been a full-time piano teacher for 40 years. I have been very fortunate to have had the opportunity to share the gift of music with so many people. I have played professionally, taught music in an elementary school, and in 1973 stated my own School of Piano. I teach classical piano, theory and ccomposition. I also teach other styles of music including blues and jazz, playing using lead sheets (playing using chords), playing by ear and learning to write your own music. My specialty is teaching students who are burned out on traditional piano instruction. My biggest compliment is to hear that former students own a piano and play regularl...

Angelese P. says, "Dr. Park's vast wisdom and knowledge on cello and orchestral cello repertoire is an invaluable asset in his teaching. Not only is he an amazing technical teacher, Dr. Park's encyclopedic knowledge of music is not only impressive but is very rare to see in a young cello instructor. It is inspiring to say the least! He also shows that he cares about you outside the studio and is very personable and friendly. I greatly enjoyed my lessons with Yeil when I was at ASU. I would recommend him to anyone, no matter what age or level you are in your cello-learning journey!" Read more

Gerben K. says, "During our introductory lesson Bryan laid out his teaching style and program, and it matched what I wanted to learn exactly. My goal is to learn how to play the Bass without necessarily needing to remember songs entirely. I want to be able to pick up a bass guitar and play something, or play along with something, because I understand music, notes, composition, etc. Right from the get go it was obvious that's exactly what Bryan's goals for his students are as well, so it was a great fit. Bryan was the first of several teachers who responded to my request on lessons.com, and while I was planning on trying out a lesson with everyone and then making my decision, after my one lesson with Bryan I felt like there was no need as I had found what I was looking for. I am now three lessons in and very much liking the experience. Every week he teaches me something new about music theory and provides me with exercises that help me develop good technique and finger coordination. I would definitely recommend Bryan as a teacher for bass guitar. " Read more

Your Music Lessons questions, answered

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Lessons.

How much do music lessons cost?

Music lessons cost $40 to $90 per hour. Most teachers offer weekly lessons in order to provide regular feedback, keep students motivated, and provide enough opportunities to learn new techniques and pieces of music. More frequent lessons do not provide enough time to practice and master skills between lessons.

To save money on music lessons consider group lessons, which are often cheaper than private lessons and allow you to learn from other students. Another option is to take online lessons which tend to be more affordable than in-person lessons and can be a great way to learn from a qualified teacher that isn't local. Finally, look for scholarships or grants to help pay for music lessons.

At what age can you start music lessons?

The best age to start music lessons depends on the individual and their interests. Most experts agree that children can start learning music as early as 3 or 4 years old when they can communicate and follow instructions. There is no age that is too late to take music lessons – even seniors can benefit from learning or improving their musical skills.

Studies have shown that children who are exposed to music at an early age have better language skills, memory, and problem-solving skills. Music lessons help improve fine motor skills like hand-eye coordination and finger dexterity which are important for other activities like writing and drawing. Learning to play an instrument can also build a child's self-confidence and help to develop a child's creativity.

How long does it take to learn an instrument?

The amount of time it takes to learn an instrument depends on the instrument, the student's age, and the amount of time they practice. In general, it takes several months to a year to learn the basics of most instruments including how to read music and play basic scales and chords. With regular practice, students can expect to play simple songs within a few months.

Piano, guitar, and percussion instruments are some of the easier instruments to learn. Strings and horn instruments take a bit longer to learn. Becoming proficient at any instrument takes several years of lessons and regular practice.

Do I need an instrument at home to take music lessons?

No, you do not need an instrument at home to take music lessons, but it does make it easier to practice and improve your skills. Without an instrument at home, you will need to find an instrument to practice between lessons if you hope to improve.

Before investing in any musical instrument, you will want to talk with the music teacher to find the instrument that is right for you. Guitars are a popular instrument for beginners since they are relatively inexpensive to buy. The flute is another simple instrument to learn and is a good choice for students who want to learn to play an instrument quickly. Pianos are a more costly instrument but are a popular choice for families since everyone can enjoy playing the same instrument.

How do online music lessons work?

Online music lessons are similar to in-person lessons, only the teacher and student are not in the same physical location. Using video conferencing platforms such as Skype or Zoom, the teacher and students can communicate with each other from the privacy of their homes.

In order to take advantage of the affordable online lessons, you need a computer and internet connection with good audio and video quality to avoid frustration. The teacher and student join the video call and the lesson proceeds in the same way they would for an in-person lesson. Online music lessons require more focus and patience and are not suggested for very young students.

What questions should I ask a music teacher?

Here are some important questions you should ask a music teacher before you start taking lessons:

  • What is your teaching style?
  • What is your experience teaching music?
  • What are your rates?
  • How long are your lessons?
  • What is your availability?
  • What are your expectations for students?
  • Can you provide references from your current and past students?

How do I choose a music teacher?

Choosing a qualified music teacher is important for those wanting to learn or develop their musical skills. Find a teacher that fits your schedule, budget, and learning style by following these recommendations:

  • Look for a teacher with a degree in music or years of experience teaching your preferred instrument.
  • Make sure the teacher with a teaching style that suits you. For example, if you learn better with a more formal teacher that focuses on technique, don't choose a teacher that is more relaxed and focuses on creative, free-style playing.
  • Find a teacher that is affordable for your budget and has availability for lessons that fit your schedule.
  • Confirm that the teacher will help you reach your goals whether it is to learn a new instrument, read music, learn music theory, or just have fun.How do I choose a music teacher?

I like the results! As I grew older I realized I needed help keeping my voice "young." Once I got to a stronger place vocally I've kept up my training with him on a regular basis. His patience, his knowledge of the voice, and his amazing studio keep me coming back.

As a beginner - adult student (age39) Linda Pearl Allen is the best. She is such a pleasure to work with! She is very knowledgeable, friendly, and extremely patient. She starts by creating lessons based on your induvial weakness/interest, and then advance from there. Working full time I love that her schedule is very flexible also. Over the years I've tried to teach myself thru self taught books and videos, and would often get distracted and overwhelmed. Having that person to person interaction with Linda helps me stay focus and makes learning the piano simple and fun. I've always had a passion to learn the piano/keyboards and it's nice to see it actually evolving Thanks to Linda!

Dr. Park is not only an incredible cellist but the best cello teacher you could hope for. He guides you to improve technically and musically, asking questions along the way so that his students have their own realizations and each form their own musical identity. His Socratic approach meant that I always left my lessons feeling inspired and even more fascinated about music than before.

Susan Traylor provided a comfortable atmosphere during piano lessons. Playing with Susan was relaxing and not intimidating in the slightest. She was incredibly personable as well as kind and informative, making every lesson wonderful. She has also years of experience, which was demonstrated through her teaching and piano playing as a whole.
