Brett E. says, "I have been working with Dr. Steve Fiess of High Range Piano for the last 10 months as an adult piano student, and I have been extremely satisfied with his instruction. I have been making great progress, and I’ve been improving faster than I have in the past with other teachers. Overall, Steve is a quiet, calm, all-around kind person. He is always encouraging, even when offering constructive criticism of my playing. I always look forward to my next lesson. After each lesson, I leave feeling good about my playing, and also like I received good feedback, so I know where I need to improve. Steve has been great at helping me select songs to play. As we move on to new pieces, the next one is always just the right difficulty--challenging enough to help me progress but always within reach with a little bit of work. He’s also always open to me bringing in pieces that I want to work on. I usually bring a few in, and he helps me decide which piece will be the best fit for my current skills. Steve’s depth and breadth of piano knowledge is also impressive. I often ask him questions about why a particular piece is written a particular way or some other detail about a piece. He always has a thorough answer that covers the relevant areas of music history, theory, and practice. I’ve never met another piano teacher who is so knowledgeable about the piano and piano music. It really helps to give some context to the music I’m playing and helps me understand it better. Overall, I’ve been very pleased, and I would not hesitate to recommend High Range Piano to anyone looking for a piano teacher. " Read more

Yule B. says, "I was doubtful about taking Piano lessons, because I didn’t believe I could play such a complex instrument. Nevertheless, after talking with a friend who recommended Cesare Della Noce, I decided to give it a try. Now, and I am very happy that I did it. Cesar has a great method to teach how to play such a complex instrument. Cesar taught me the fundamentals of sight reading, technique and theory. I was also able to incorporate my favorite songs into my lessons. I went from playing the piano slowly (basic) to a more advanced and fast paced level. I am enjoying very much to be able to express myself through the music I play in my piano. I'm getting better each day and constantly taking new challenges by selecting songs with higher level of difficulty. THANK YOU Cesare. I highly recommend him. " Read more

My children werent even in his class at school but he allowed them to come in on breaks and show their talents as well as helping them with what little time they have. When my son needed some things mr. Rodgers went out and purchased materials with his own money. He is all around an amazing human.

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.

Mrs M.
Cesare is an amazing teacher! He taught my 7 year old and 12 year old piano. His mix of theory and technique were perfect! He met each child where they were and pushed them as they were ready⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ His voice is comforting and it’s like the piano is extension of him as a person… he really fees the music and that comes across in the lessons!
