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?

How do I select a piano teacher?

  • 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.

Jonathon T.
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.

I've been a student of hers for years, and I absolutely love her! She is very kind and welcoming, and her home is neat and clean. I learned so much and you can tell she loves piano and teaching so much. She has had students ranging from ~3 or 4 years old up to seniors in high school so she can teach all levels. I highly recommend her, and in addition to learning so much and becoming a better pianist, lessons were fun and encouraging. I no longer take lessons from her as I'm in college now, but we still keep in touch over text and email because she builds lasting relationships with her students.

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!

Tommy has been a friend and music business mentor to me for many, many years. He has lived and worked in two of the major music cities in the US (Nashville and Austin) and has worked with well known artists and indie up-and-comers. He knows his way around not only the business side, but the recording studio, the live venue, the travel, the songwriting, the band dynamic; pretty much anything about the entertainment industry He's a true pro that brings a positive attitude to his work that is fun and infectious among his colleagues and students. I highly recommend working with Tommy Held!
