Connor M. says, "Steve has played a tremendous role in the progress I've made as a guitar player. Lessons with him are enjoyable, rewarding, and low stress. He is a good listener; he pays attention to my playing and my questions, and provides valuable feedback. The work he gives me between lessons is always challenging, but reasonable, keeping me motivated and keeping the momentum going on improving my technique and musicality. He plays beautifully and seems to genuinely enjoy discussing all things related to music and the guitar." Read more

Your Kids Music Lessons questions, answered

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Lessons.

How much do music lessons for kids cost near me?

Music lessons for kids cost $30 to $50 for a half-hour class. For older or more advanced students, the price can go up to $40 to $90 per hour. In a group setting, lessons can cost $20 to $50 per session depending on where you live.

Prices vary widely depending on if the lessons are from a freelance music tutor or a teacher at a public or private school.

Are music lessons worth it?

Music lessons for kids are worth it since they help to increase their confidence and provide a fun way to express a child's creativity.

Here are the other benefits of music lessons:

  • Music education makes a child feel good about themselves when learning a new skill.
  • This training helps kids learn to be patient and focus better.
  • These classes give kids opportunities to make friends in a group class or band.

What age is best for kids to start music lessons?

Kids typically do best when they start music lessons between the ages of 4 to 10 years old. The right age depends on the instrument type and when the child can pay attention for a 30-minute lesson.

For instruments like the violin or guitar, kids need certain physical skills like finger strength and flexibility before beginning lessons.

How long are music lessons for kids, and how many do they need?

Music lessons for kids are typically 30 minutes long or up to 1 hour for advanced students. Kids typically have music lessons once a week, or 4 to 5 times monthly. How many lessons a kid needs depends on their natural talent, experience, how much they practice, and their goals.

Learning to play a simple song or read music can take months of regular lessons. Within a year, lots of kids can play simple songs and start reading music. After about 3 to 6 years, children can play many different songs well.

A kid who already knows some music and practices a lot can learn faster.

How do I find the best kids music lessons near me?

You can find music lessons for kids here on our Lessons website. Plus, local music stores often have teachers who give private lessons.

Before you choose a teacher, make sure to:

  • Compare the prices of at least 3 music tutors.
  • Read reviews about the teachers on Lessons and Google.
  • Ask for contact information of past students for references.
  • Chat with other parents about the teacher's work with kids.
  • Get a detailed contract and payment schedule before your first class.
  • Pay in small amounts until you're sure you like the teacher. Prepaying for a month ahead is cheaper but may be difficult to get a refund for.

What should I ask when choosing a music teacher for kids?

Here are some questions to help choose the best music teacher:

  • How long have you been teaching music?
  • What age group of children do you enjoy teaching the most?
  • How many music degrees do you have, and do you play professionally?
  • Can my child try a lesson for free or at a reduced price to see if they like it?
  • Do you have instruments for rent if we don't have one at home?
  • What books or sheet music do we need to buy for class?
  • How much should my kid practice?
  • Can you adjust your teaching methods for students with special needs?
  • Will there be homework?
  • What should my child bring, and how long does each class last?
  • Can we have a copy of our class schedule, agreement, and payment details?
  • What should I do if we need to cancel a class suddenly?
  • Can my kid choose some of their favorite songs to learn?

We've been working with Ben for nearly 3 years and my kids are excited every week to practice and attend lessons! He's innovative, engaged, and endlessly patient, which makes each week an adventure. He is extremely organized and his own talent allows him to use both traditional materials and original adaptations for specific skill levels and different instruments. He truly listens and modifies each individual's curriculum to their ability and interest--it's simply amazing!! I cannot say enough positive things about Ben--I am so thankful to have found him and to witness the growth in my kiddos both as musicians and creative thinkers.
