Carol R. says, "I am an adult student and have been taking lessons from Maureen at Ride Music for about 5 years now. Truly enjoying the experience and I have learned a great deal. Maureen is a patient and inventive teacher. I particular love the small group classes. They're fun and I find I learn more in a group lesson than in a private lesson, which I didn't expect. Highly recommend Ride Music Studio." Read more

I gained my piano training and music education in Taiwan (BM) and Japan (MM) and have been teaching for 25 years, currently in Cupertino, Santa Clara and Mountain View. I love the opportunity to share my love of music and to inspire students to achieve their best. I use the music exams of the MTAC and ABRSM and enter students for several competitions as additional motivation. My students have ranged from ages 4-18, many of them competition prize winners and gaining the highest honors in exams. I see piano lessons as an opportunity not only to excel in music but to improve learning skills in general and add to their quality of life.

Your Piano Lessons questions, answered

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Lessons.

How much are piano lessons?

Piano lessons cost $40 to $80 per hour, depending on the location, their experience level, and session length. A piano lesson package costs $180 to $350 for five 1-hour lessons. Children's piano lessons and online lessons often cost less than average.

Piano lessons are available for all ages in most cities in the country. Music instructors teach:

  • Music theory
  • Sight-reading
  • Improvisation
  • How to improve playing or technique

At what age should you start piano lessons?

The best age to start piano lessons is 5 to 9 years, though learning how to play the piano doesn't have an age limit. Playing the piano strengthens fine motor skills, increases flexibility, and improves your memory no matter how old you are.

Are piano lessons worth it?

Piano lessons are worth the money and effort invested over time. Playing an instrument can be beneficial for mental health, and cognitive strength. For smaller budgets, book just a few lessons to get the basics down and continue on your own.

How long are piano lessons?

Piano lessons for beginners or children are typically 30 to 45 minutes per session. Intermediate or advanced lessons are 45 to 60+ minutes per session. Most people have 1 to 2 lessons per week.

Can you learn to play piano online?

How do I select a piano teacher?

  • Get at least three free estimates to compare.
  • Read reviews on Lessons and Google if possible.
  • Ask for references from current or recent students.
  • Make sure they are kind and personable, especially when with children.
  • Get a written estimate and schedule before the first lesson.
