Judy S. says, "I am an adult student of John O’Keefe. I have studied with him for the past nine years. I knew how to read music when I started studying with him and was only playing what had already been written. My primary focus was to learn how to play standard tunes by reading chord progressions. John’s teaching has taken me through the formation of chords, explanation of what makes them different (7th’s, 9th’s, 11th’s, 13th’s) and the best way to play them (voicings) so as to bring so much color to the music. I love learning music theory, the “how to” and “why” of the music. He teaches and explains in a manner which is easily understood. My weakness has been timing but we have incorporated exercises focused on different time signatures. John’s suggestions how to practice these exercises have been invaluable and I can hear an improvement. He is very knowledgeable about music, is committed to his students and is very encouraging to the student through the learning process and taking you to the next level. The studio is a very neat and organized environment. There is a choice for having lessons on a digital piano or an acoustic piano (my personal choice). The studio is high tech so I was able to have one of the songs I learned recorded. I highly recommend John O’Keefe whether you are a beginner, someone who has been on hiatus for many years and looking to get back to studying piano again or looking for a teacher to help you advance in your studies."

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?

  • 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.
