Debra J. says, "I decided to learn to play the piano for my senior project and luckily I discovered Ms. Kathy from some friends at school. From the moment I met her she made me feel welcomed and like I could really do this. Immediately when I stepped into her at home studio I could tell she loved music and from just a short talk I learned about the many years of experience she had. Originally it was planned for us to do our piano lessons in person starting this summer, but with the outbreak of coronavirus our plans changed. Ms. Kathy decided to do online zoom lessons with us and I am so glad she did. Even though our summer hours can no longer count towards our senior project it still helped us so much to get better acclimated to the piano. This summer I have learned so much about the piano and music in general. I have learned some music theory, the keys on the piano, how to better read music, about key and time signatures, chords, how to make my own chord progressions, and so much more. In just two months Ms. Kathy has worked diligently with us each week to help us become better pianist. Ms. Kathy brings some sort of structure into our classes as well as much flexibility. At times I felt as if she was moving too quickly for me, but once I told her she was responsive to accommodate me. She is not just a teacher that teaches. She is a teacher that learns from her students and uses that to better herself. Her instructive attitude keeps us on track and she is also very understanding. Personally I had a situation in which I had to be out of my home for almost 2 weeks and Ms. Kathy reassured me that it was okay. She worked with me to continue to practice even without my piano. We went over music theory and she directed me to practice my fingering techniques, to complete theory activities, and to listen to piano instrumentals to work on internalizing the beat. She once said to us that she wants us to not just be listeners to music but to be participants. I believe that we have already started to become active listeners, analyzing the music that we hear. Ms. Kathy has several different students with differing skill levels but she ensures your learning experience is unique to you. If she notices that you need help on a specific area she will try her best to help you improve. With all the unexpected changes that have occurred I believe Ms. Kathy has done a great job handing it and has not allowed these situations to hold her or her students down." Read more

Music has been a passion of mine for most of my life. Besides a teaching degree, my college studies included an unofficial music minor. Life application of my music has been through my offering of praise as a pianist and accompanist in the local church. While music has been my passion, my desire is for God to receive all the glory (Psalm 71:6c, “ praise shall be continually of thee.” 1 Corinthians 10:31c, “...whatsoever ye do, do all to the glory of God.”). I have enjoyed private piano instruction as well as classroom teaching for more than thirty years, and my delight is in watching the progress in the lives of my students, both y...

I'm very qualified to teach, with undergraduate and graduate degrees in piano, piano pedagogy and organ (pipe). I have taught for many years with lots of experience teaching small children to adults. The main thing for me is that I enjoy what I do and am able to point students in the right direction. It has to be fun and interesting in order to learn. I love the one-on-one contact and seeing progress result from having fun learning. I have taught at Columbus State University and at home in my studio. My undergraduate degree in music is from Salem College in Winston-Salem, N.C. My Master of Music in Organ and Sacred Music is from Indiana U...

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.

I’ve always had a variety of music teachers while growing up because they either moved or I was assigned a new one. I appreciate that there is some stability in my learning now because I am able to emotionally connect with my teacher and understand their style.
