Your classical piano questions, answered

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Lessons.

How much do classical piano lessons cost?

Classical piano lessons cost $40 to $80 hourly on average. Piano lesson packages cost $150 to $360 per month for weekly private lessons in-home or at a studio. Musicians recommend in-person lessons for classical piano playing so that the teacher can correct your hand positions better.

What are classical piano lessons?

Classical piano lessons teach you the traditional playing style of music written by composers like Mozart and Beethoven. You'll also learn important techniques and how to read sheet music of classical arrangements.

How long must you take piano lessons to play classical?

You must take piano lessons for 1 to 2 years with consistent practice to play simple classical pieces. Some people can make faster progress if they practice more often or have prior musical experience.

How long are classical piano lessons?

Classical piano lessons are 30 to 60 minutes long on average. The amount of time varies according to the teacher's style and the abilities of the student.

How do I find the best classical piano lessons near me?

Find classical piano lessons from private instructors by looking through the listings here on the Lessons website. Local music schools sometimes offer virtual lessons online as well.

Prior to hiring a local piano instructor, you should always:

  • Secure a minimum of 3 lesson cost estimates to get a clear comparison.
  • Read their ratings on sites such as Lessons and Google.
  • Talk to students on their references list.
  • Collect a written agreement and a lesson timeline before lessons begin.
  • Wait until after your preliminary sessions to start pre-booking for a month of lessons.

What question do I ask when choosing classical piano lessons?

When you're searching for a piano teacher, be sure to ask these questions:

  • How many years have you been teaching piano?
  • What is your formal music education background?
  • Which classical music composers are your favorites?
  • What is the typical age range of your students?
  • Do you offer a trial lesson, either for free or at a discounted rate?
  • If I don't have a piano, what type of keyboard should I get for practicing?
  • How much practice should I be doing outside of our lessons?
  • What textbooks do I need, and what's their cost?
  • Do you give assignments or pieces to memorize after each lesson?
  • Can you adapt your teaching style based on the individual student's needs?
  • What should I bring with me to our lessons?
  • How many different piano genres and styles can you teach?
  • Can I get a written copy of our agreement and the payment terms?
  • What is your policy for cancelling a lesson?
  • Will I be able to choose some of my own favorite songs to learn?

Reviews for Evanston classical piano lessons

Recent success stories from people in the Evanston area.
Nevena S.
Pedja is a fantastic person. He is also one of those rare teachers who can beautifully adapt to students’ interests regardless of their age and background. Sensitive to a student’s learning pace, he helps students master the music most efficiently and musically possible. Responsible and punctual, I highly recommend him.

I have known Gerald Rizzer for many years. He has a very easy going approach to teaching but on the other hand is extremely good at helping the student improve his or her performances and musical capabilities. He is especially interested in the structure of the pieces the student is working on and can improve interpretations by focusing on that structure. He is the leader of the well known Chicago Ensemble and his abilities as a professional performing musician are beyond reproach. I highly recommend him.

I have known Andy Bossov for a very long time. I find him to be a very knowledgeable, personable and capable individual. He is a great teacher, whether he's teaching piano or as a Rabbi, teaching religion.

I have been taking piano lessons with Nevena for three months and I highly recommend her as a teacher. I'm 46 years old with no musical background and no sense of rhythm, if she can teach me she can teach anybody. She is a very patient instructor. We use a book for lessons but also individualizes lessons depending on how your are progressing. We recently had to switch to having our classes through Skype and she has been very effective continuing to teach in that format.
