I also like that he is patient with me and takes the time to fix problems and initiate good practice and playing habits, avoiding common mistakes that would catch up to me in the future. Eric is a great teacher, and I plan to work with him more." Read more

Gretta K. says, "So glad a friend told me about this company for our musical daughter! I couldn’t be happier with the ease of booking, communication, high quality teachers, and the fact that they come to your home for lessons is the most convenient thing ever! I can get so much more done having one less activity to shuttle around for. My daughter loves her teacher and I won’t use any other company for our music lesson needs. I’m even considering taking up guitar myself! Really appreciate the genius behind this quality and convenient company for hard working parents." Read more

Willie F. says, "My daughter has been going to A Musician Is..... for 6 years now. Many hobbies have come and gone but not her desire to play the violin and I believe that has alot to do with the teachers here. I've sat in on many classes and it's amazing to see the progress my daughter & son have made, the knowledge they have gained learning to play , the discipline they have learned thru practice and being a musician and how to apply that to everyday life. Nikki's music knowledge and the tidbits she throws your way makes each class entertaining. My daughter & son (piano for 1 yr now) look forward to all the recitals and they gets a kick out of people of all ages dressed up nervous and excited to perform. Love the group classes and group recitals also. It’s a family atmosphere and after all this time it’s been great to see everyone grow and improve. One of the best decisions I’ve made. Getting my kids into lessons and having music playing in my house every night!!" Read more

Even though she is a master at the piano and has many students that far surpass my skill level, she is still very comfortable with me starting from zero and doing the basics. She's pleasant to work with, she always tells me what to work on at home, and whether I master my practice or am struggling with it, she can meet me where I am and get me further along. Thanks, Kristina!" Read more

Crystal W. says, "I just finished Moon Magnet’s course, “Release Your Music in 90 Days.” When I first read about this course, I did not really believe that I could create releasable music in 90 days. Boy, was I wrong! From the very first lesson, my teacher was attentive, thorough and provided actionable feedback throughout the course. I walked away with 6 songs that with minor refinements will be released in the near future. I would recommend Moon Magnet to anyone who wants to develop a more structured recording, mixing, mastering, and release strategy." 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?

Reviews for Lakewood music classes

Recent success stories from people in the Lakewood area.
Caroline M.
I found Peter as a beginner, looking to take adult lessons. After just a few months, my sight reading, piano theory knowledge, and understanding of the instrument’s capabilities increased substantially. Peter continues to show me different ways to be creative with the piano in order to play the way I prefer/enjoy. He tailors our lessons based on what my ultimate goals are. He consistently finds new music for me to learn, and I always walk away from our lessons feeling more confident in my skills and knowledge of the piano. Another great thing about my lessons with Peter is the patience and understanding he shows with my progress; he is willing to go over things multiple times as needed and repeatedly works around my schedule when I have to miss a lesson. Overall, Peter is a kind and dedicated teacher that puts in time and effort to see me succeed in my goals. I highly recommend Peter for piano lessons.

Reed has been my two kids' piano teacher for the past five years and we all think Reed is the best! He is clearly a very skilled and talented musician himself and his love of music is obvious in his instruction and teaching style. As a teacher, Reed is a perfect combination of patience, encouragement, and structure. While he focuses on the fundamental and technical aspects of music, he also encourages students to develop their own style and explore songs and music that speak to their individual interests. My kids have learned to play some of their favorite songs which keeps them interested and excited about piano. When I hear my kids playing the piano, I am struck by the fact that, thanks to Moon Magnet, they are really good piano players! Reed is reliable and dependable while at the same time being flexible with scheduling. This flexibility is important to our family given our kids' activities and changing schedules. Reed is also friendly and approachable and always open to suggestions. We have referred Moon Magnet to several friends and they have all been extremely happy and impressed. If you are looking for a great piano teacher, look no further and contact Moon Magnet!

I loved working at this studio because the vocal education that I received is a higher quality than that of any other. From the onset of the lesson, my teacher treated me with dignity and respect, and guided me through various techniques and pieces while constantly showing me new ways to improve which I had never heard before. Overall, she was phenomenal and I cannot wait to have another lesson!
