Your Music Teachers questions, answered

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Lessons.

How much do music teachers cost near me?

Music teachers typically cost $40 to $90 per hour for private lessons. For those who enjoy learning in groups, consider cost-effective group lessons at $20 to $50 per session. For added convenience, online lessons are available at $35 to $70 per hour.

Engage in regular lessons at a monthly cost of $150 to $400, which is the average rate for ongoing lessons booked in advance. Prices vary by the instrument type and your location.

Are music lessons worth it?

Music lessons are worth it to speed up your learning process and unleash your musical potential, regardless of your age or skill level. These private classes with a professional teacher help you express yourself through music and boost your cognitive abilities.

Many playing techniques on your instrument require feedback in-person to understand fully. Learning proper playing habits early on will help you overcome difficulties in understanding advanced playing skills later.

How often should I have music lessons?

You should have music lessons as often as you like to accomplish your personal goals, and most teachers recommend 1 to 2 weekly classes.

Follow these tips to make the fastest progress:

  • Practice frequently.
  • Memorize the lessons after each class.
  • Request help when you're struggling.
  • Set reasonable expectations with yourself by discussing your progress goals with your teacher.

How long are music lessons?

Music lessons are typically 30 to 60 minutes long to ensure you gain knowledge at a gradual pace without strain. Shorter classes are better for beginners, and you can request longer lessons later as you advance in your musical skills.

How many music lessons do I need?

The total number of music lessons you need is a personal decision you'll make with your teacher according to the level of musical proficiency you desire.

Some average timeframes for learning to play an instrument are:

  • Playing your first song and understanding sheet music takes 3 months to 1 year.
  • After 2 to 5 years, hobbyists start feeling comfortable playing in public.
  • Professionals who perform spend 10 to 20+ years learning their craft.

How do I find a good music teacher near me?

Find your perfect music teacher by browsing through our vast network of private tutors here on the Lessons website.

Before booking a music teacher, make sure to:

  • Compare 3 or more different instructors.
  • Consider their ratings from previous students on Lessons and Google.
  • Ask for feedback from their list of references.
  • Request a written contract and schedule before starting the first lesson.
  • Wait until after the initial lesson to see if the instructor is a good match for you before paying for an entire month of instruction.

What questions do I ask before choosing a music teacher?

When talking to potential music teachers, you may want to ask:

  • How many years have you been teaching music?
  • Can you tell me about your academic qualifications in music?
  • What age range do you typically teach?
  • Do you offer a first-time discount or a free trial lesson?
  • Which books will I need and how much are they likely to cost?
  • What kind of instrument would you recommend for home practice?
  • How much practice would you suggest between lessons?
  • Will you provide some practice pieces or homework after each lesson?
  • What should I bring to our lessons?
  • Do you change your teaching methods according to the student's learning style?
  • What variety of music styles can you teach?
  • Can I get a written copy of the rules and payment methods?
  • What is the procedure if I need to cancel a lesson?
  • Can I pick some songs I'd like to learn?

I have been playing piano for over 10 years and had different teachers, but with Jenny I was able to make the most significant improvement of all my piano learning. Jenny helped me figure out exactly how to develop technique practices that allowed me to start playing a lot harder pieces, and, most importantly, how to approach artistry and musical ideas, rather than imitation or fully relying on intuition. Also, all the lessons were fun and Jenny is a very chill and understandable person
