I have had great success with young beginners. My goal is for them to learn the basics of sight reading, music theory and practice in a relaxed and enjoyable way. I try to promote good habits as well as the understanding of the music they are playing, and encourage them to seek out songs at their level that they already know and like. I've been teaching for about 10 years, now I teach in homes as well as group online lessons. I am flexible about this, whatever works for the student and their family. I've been playing all my life, and I now regularly play and perform with other musicians. Music, and specifically piano and keyboard music, are...

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.

I have to say, Bobbie has been an absolute gem when it comes to teaching my boys, aged 9 and 11, for the past 4 years. She has this incredible ability to balance being firm and strict with being flexible and fun, which makes the learning experience enjoyable for my kids. But it's not just about piano lessons with Bobbie - she goes above and beyond by teaching them valuable time management skills and encouraging them to reflect on their progress. I sometimes take a seat and listen to her words of wisdom, and I'm always impressed by her insights. Kevin, my talented 11-year-old, was actually asked by his music teacher to be a chorus accompanist at school. That happened after his music teacher heard him playing the piano during a talent show. And Alex, my little 9-year-old - he is obsessed with game music. Well, Bobbie came to the rescue and taught him how to transcribe the music he loves so much. It's incredible to see how he's grown in that area! I wholeheartedly recommend Bobbie to everyone seeking a piano teacher. Although she is selective in her student intake, if you have the chance to learn from her, you will discover what I believe to be the finest piano teacher out there.
