Jennifer C. says, "I have two children - ages 7 and 9 - who took lessons with Bethany this year. We have had an excellent experience. Bethany has an outstanding capacity to gauge the ability of her students and to push them (gently!) to excel. Time and again she encouraged my children to play pieces and to take on challenges that I thought were beyond them. Time and again, she was right about their abilities. I have been delighted to watch both of my children grow so much under her instruction. Bethany creates multiple opportunities for her students to perform throughout the year. We were very impressed by how clearly she telegraphs to her students the need to take each performance seriously and to treat every audience to a polished and professional performance. Bethany is also, quite simply, wonderful with children. Our two children have different personalities and she found ways to relate to and motivate each of them. She can work with them effectively on their best days and their worst. Both of my children really like her - they find her genuinely warm and caring, and they can tell that she takes them seriously. They look forward to lessons and they work hard all week so that they will not let Bethany down. Her expectations are high, but she is also careful to nurture her students' self-esteem and to teach them how to move beyond their mistakes. There are many other wonderful things I can say about Bethany. She is very responsive to emails and text messages. She always follows up when she says she will. She is never late for a lesson and frequently spends extra time with her students at the end of the lesson. She emphasizes technique and other skills, even as she ensures that her students are genuinely enjoying the music they are encountering and mastering In short, Bethany is an all-around wonder as a piano instructor. We have had a very positive experience with Bethany and would recommend her unreservedly to anyone." Read more

Your Music Lessons questions, answered

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Lessons.

How much do music lessons cost?

Music lessons cost $40 to $90 per hour. Most teachers offer weekly lessons in order to provide regular feedback, keep students motivated, and provide enough opportunities to learn new techniques and pieces of music. More frequent lessons do not provide enough time to practice and master skills between lessons.

To save money on music lessons consider group lessons, which are often cheaper than private lessons and allow you to learn from other students. Another option is to take online lessons which tend to be more affordable than in-person lessons and can be a great way to learn from a qualified teacher that isn't local. Finally, look for scholarships or grants to help pay for music lessons.

At what age can you start music lessons?

The best age to start music lessons depends on the individual and their interests. Most experts agree that children can start learning music as early as 3 or 4 years old when they can communicate and follow instructions. There is no age that is too late to take music lessons – even seniors can benefit from learning or improving their musical skills.

Studies have shown that children who are exposed to music at an early age have better language skills, memory, and problem-solving skills. Music lessons help improve fine motor skills like hand-eye coordination and finger dexterity which are important for other activities like writing and drawing. Learning to play an instrument can also build a child's self-confidence and help to develop a child's creativity.

How long does it take to learn an instrument?

The amount of time it takes to learn an instrument depends on the instrument, the student's age, and the amount of time they practice. In general, it takes several months to a year to learn the basics of most instruments including how to read music and play basic scales and chords. With regular practice, students can expect to play simple songs within a few months.

Piano, guitar, and percussion instruments are some of the easier instruments to learn. Strings and horn instruments take a bit longer to learn. Becoming proficient at any instrument takes several years of lessons and regular practice.

Do I need an instrument at home to take music lessons?

No, you do not need an instrument at home to take music lessons, but it does make it easier to practice and improve your skills. Without an instrument at home, you will need to find an instrument to practice between lessons if you hope to improve.

Before investing in any musical instrument, you will want to talk with the music teacher to find the instrument that is right for you. Guitars are a popular instrument for beginners since they are relatively inexpensive to buy. The flute is another simple instrument to learn and is a good choice for students who want to learn to play an instrument quickly. Pianos are a more costly instrument but are a popular choice for families since everyone can enjoy playing the same instrument.

How do online music lessons work?

Online music lessons are similar to in-person lessons, only the teacher and student are not in the same physical location. Using video conferencing platforms such as Skype or Zoom, the teacher and students can communicate with each other from the privacy of their homes.

In order to take advantage of the affordable online lessons, you need a computer and internet connection with good audio and video quality to avoid frustration. The teacher and student join the video call and the lesson proceeds in the same way they would for an in-person lesson. Online music lessons require more focus and patience and are not suggested for very young students.

What questions should I ask a music teacher?

Here are some important questions you should ask a music teacher before you start taking lessons:

  • What is your teaching style?
  • What is your experience teaching music?
  • What are your rates?
  • How long are your lessons?
  • What is your availability?
  • What are your expectations for students?
  • Can you provide references from your current and past students?

How do I choose a music teacher?

Choosing a qualified music teacher is important for those wanting to learn or develop their musical skills. Find a teacher that fits your schedule, budget, and learning style by following these recommendations:

  • Look for a teacher with a degree in music or years of experience teaching your preferred instrument.
  • Make sure the teacher with a teaching style that suits you. For example, if you learn better with a more formal teacher that focuses on technique, don't choose a teacher that is more relaxed and focuses on creative, free-style playing.
  • Find a teacher that is affordable for your budget and has availability for lessons that fit your schedule.
  • Confirm that the teacher will help you reach your goals whether it is to learn a new instrument, read music, learn music theory, or just have fun.How do I choose a music teacher?

It's such a privilege to have Dr. Campbell to teach our 3 kids Piano!!! We have been with Dr. Campbell for the last 6 years. All 3 of our kids have different interests and styles of learning, and Dr. Campbell is able to help all of them keep their interests in piano. She takes the time identify their music interest and utilizing that, find the pieces for them to play to keep them engaged and excel. We are so thankful to have Dr. Campbell be the piano teacher for us!
