Samantha B. says, "I started taking lessons from John about 3 years ago. John really knows what he is talking about and gives great feedback. I had taken lessons previously as a child/teen so was pretty rusty when I started lessons again. I had also developed some bad habits from a place I was taking lessons at before finding John. He really helped me work through those issues and my technique and ability has improved significantly since starting lessons with him." 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?

Yes, you can learn to play piano online through a webcam or virtual tutorials. Search our list of online piano teacher near you to find an instructor. Online piano lessons are often more convenient than in-person lessons and cost 20% less on average.

How do I select a piano teacher?

Start by searching our list of piano teachers, then:

  • Get at least three free estimates to compare.
  • 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.

What questions should I ask piano instructors?

When hiring piano teachers near you, ask the following questions:

  • How long have you been teaching piano?
  • Do you have a degree in music?
  • What age do you typically teach?
  • What genre of piano do you specialize in?
  • Will you give me a contract or payment arrangement in writing?
  • Will you allow me to choose some or all of the songs we practice?

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.

We love Ethan! In addition to being a wonderful person and a great role model for our son, he is an excellent violinist and teacher. It’s a joy to hear him playing with and spurring our son onto evermore complex pieces and techniques. We couldn’t recommend him more highly!
