I have been a piano teacher in my home for many years and have given private lessons at Wesley United Methodist Church in Elgin where I have been the organist/pianist for 20 years. I was also an organist at Light of Christ Lutheran Church in Algonquin for 13 years. I was also a choral accompanist in two local high schools. I love accompanying soloists and playing the piano keeps me happy!

LAT says, "Dr. Yulia Lipmanovich tailors her teaching methods according to each individual student and his or her individual goals. Her knowledge of the different music literature and composers is vast and she imparts a style of playing as taught by her very well-known teachers. In addition, she is very patient, understanding, and acts as an excellent guide. Working with her has truly broadened my understanding of Musical Interpretation and more fundamentally, Sound. I cannot recommend studying with her enough. Whether you are returning to the piano after a long hiatus (like I did), or just beginning no matter what the age, you cannot go wrong studying with her. Finally, as a working Concert Pianist, Dr. Yulia organizes a series of Recitals, Student Concerts, Masterclasses, and is very involved in various Festivals. Her students can and are encouraged to participate and from personal experience, I can say that these supplementary activities, in addition to regular lessons, have been invaluable. " 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?

  • 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.
  • Avoid making a large payment up front. Follow a payment plan instead.

After asking questions and browsing reviews, hire the best piano instructor in your area.

I began taking piano lessons with Dr. Kania after an absence from my music of more than a decade. Dr. Kania has helped me shape my music and develop my musicality. I have enjoyed working on pieces we have selected together while focusing on techniques to improve the tone and line of my music. He has many small exercises specifically designed to develop correct hand position and movement for tricky or difficult sections. He has helped me understand and improve how my hand and arm can move without tension, creating a richness of sound I had been searching for in my music. We have worked on technique, theory, musicality, and correct practicing of difficult passages during the course of my lessons, creating an integrated view of the musical work I am studying. Dr. Kania is a talented musician and conductor who also instills a deep and sincere appreciation for music in his students. I have found Dr. Kania to be professional and also very responsive to the needs of an adult student. I have enjoyed my lessons and am very satisfied with the music we have studied together. The resulting changes in the quality of my piano performance is dramatically noticeable to my friends and family who often listen to me play. He teaches with a level of care and depth of understanding I have never known in any previous instructor. I look forward to continuing my lessons with Dr. Kania. I feel I play more expressively and with joy since beginning my studies with him. I have recommended Dr. Kania and his unique approach to piano instruction to my friends.

Dr. Yulia is very dedicated and passionate of teaching the student what is needed and necessary to know in the lesson. I've been studying with Dr. Yulia for over 2 years now which my piano performance improved quite a bit. Wouldn't recommend any other instructor except for Dr. Yulia.

Tad has been wonderful! His expertise and training really shine through the lessons with my children. He has suggested specific books that will address their areas of need while also keeping in mind their song/style interests and goals. Tad provides challenging yet engaging lessons that have already expanded their skill level. Always communicative, courteous, and punctual, I would highly recommend Tad to anyone looking for piano lessons.

Daniel has been fantastic with my 8 year old. He has been taking lessons with Daniel for almost a year now and his growth has been incredible. Daniel has taught my son to play with music that my son chooses and now he can just look at any chord sheet and just play. It’s unbelievable. If you are hesitant about virtual, I just want to say how awesome Daniel is with it. He catches everything. He is so observant. I couldn’t recommend him enough!
