Jacob M. says, "When I came to Zoe a couple of months ago after a long hiatus from formal singing, my throat felt very tight--my range had gone down to just over an octave. A couple of months later, I can sing nearly three octaves, and my voice is more relaxed than ever. I've found my falsetto, and every week my voice is more resonant and free. Zoe is incredibly knowledgeable about the voice both from a technical and a practical perspective. In lessons, she is careful to differentiate among the things she tells me what is actually (physically) going on with my voice organs and what is merely a feeling or a metaphor she is using as a didactic tool. And that is just a small testament to her technical knowledge and the way she uses it with her students. She also has a wealth of personal experience and anecdotes from her years teaching students. It seems every hiccup I've encountered, she has either personally dealt with it (such as unlearning certain common but unhealthy vocal techniques) or has had students with the exact problem. In addition to her impressive resume and evident teaching ability, she has been very considerate and understanding with me, while maintaining high and professional standards for the quality and work she expects out of me. I cannot recommend Zoe highly enough." Read more

Alma H. says, "Michelle has changed my voice for the better, and my life. Her style of teaching is transformative. Working with her, not only did we delve into vocal technique and vocal agility - she also explained the various parts of voice anatomically and how they work together to create sound. Michelle also worked with me on building confidence as a performer, and what it means to really SING! I do not have enough words to explain the profound change she has made. She can work with beginners, those who are more intermediate, and even those who are advanced looking to improve their performance. Her teachings are beyond anything I’ve ever experienced. 10/10 highly recommend." Read more

Keith H. says, "I never thought at the start of this journey that I'd be playing classical music on a mandolin, but often, it really fits, and in general, it's helped to develop a kind of musicianship that I find I can apply to anything else I want to play. Adam is a knowledgeable and enthusiastic instructor about music and music history. He supports a number of group projects (focusing on several different styles including classical, Celtic, and Klezmer) for students, which are an excellent way to learn." Read more

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?

Mr. Bosco is one of the nicest music teachers I have ever met. He has helped me tremendously while preparing to major in music education at UCONN this upcoming fall. He understands the students and their needs while giving the best education possible. I would reccomend Mr. Bosco to anyone looking for a music instructor.

I really enjoy the lessons and appreciate the helpful practice videos which I'm receiving almost every week and love how organized, clear and sharp the lessons are. I really feel my progress since starting to take lessons with Dror.

I would highly recommend Zoe as a teacher. Every lesson I have had has been approached with care and has been FULL of helpful information regarding technique, musicality, history and so much more. This has lead me to establish healthy habits and has facilitated more growth than I thought was possible in the months I have spent with her as my teacher. As someone with a degree in music who has had many instructors teach me various instruments I can say with confidence that the value of Zoe’s lessons is exceptional. She creates an environment that challenges you without judgement allowing you to move at a pace you are comfortable with without the risk of you ever getting bored. I look forward to my lesson every week and I am excited to see how much I will grow and improve going forward with Zoe as my teacher.
