Lily I. says, "My 8 year old daughter has been taking lessons with Senem for over a year. She looks forward to her lessons every week! Prior to choosing Senem we tried out multiple other teachers but Senem had a great balance of structure while still keeping my young daughter engaged. Having taken lessons myself for over 10 years I'm surprised at how well my daughter plays already! It just really shows how big of a difference a teacher can make. We're so glad we found Senem!"

Willie F. says, "My daughter has been going to A Musician Is..... for 6 years now. Many hobbies have come and gone but not her desire to play the violin and I believe that has alot to do with the teachers here. I've sat in on many classes and it's amazing to see the progress my daughter & son have made, the knowledge they have gained learning to play , the discipline they have learned thru practice and being a musician and how to apply that to everyday life. Nikki's music knowledge and the tidbits she throws your way makes each class entertaining. My daughter & son (piano for 1 yr now) look forward to all the recitals and they gets a kick out of people of all ages dressed up nervous and excited to perform. Love the group classes and group recitals also. It’s a family atmosphere and after all this time it’s been great to see everyone grow and improve. One of the best decisions I’ve made. Getting my kids into lessons and having music playing in my house every night!!" Read more

Angelese P. says, "Dr. Park's vast wisdom and knowledge on cello and orchestral cello repertoire is an invaluable asset in his teaching. Not only is he an amazing technical teacher, Dr. Park's encyclopedic knowledge of music is not only impressive but is very rare to see in a young cello instructor. It is inspiring to say the least! He also shows that he cares about you outside the studio and is very personable and friendly. I greatly enjoyed my lessons with Yeil when I was at ASU. I would recommend him to anyone, no matter what age or level you are in your cello-learning journey!" Read more

Chad R. says, "Dennis is a great teacher. I have played guitar for years but have lacked some fundamental concepts that have kept me from progressing in my development. After a short time with Dennis I can find chord shapes all over the fretboard, figure out progressions to songs without looking them up, and I am starting to get comfortable mixing major and minor scales while soloing."

Zoey M. says, "About four weeks ago, I came into the vocal assessment expecting a vocal coach to listen to my voice for a few minutes and tell me what they thought. I had no idea how physiological it was going to get. In just four weeks, I have heard and also felt different changes in my voice like different areas of my voice moving and contracting whenever I sing, or going up a few notes in my range that were near impossible for me to hit. This experience has challenging, unpredictable and exciting all at once and I always find myself looking forward to what is to come the week after and what changes my voice has gone through in just a few weeks. It's incredible and completely worth it." 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?

Senem is very kind, patient & most importantly knows how to engage with her students. She makes learning fun for my 10 year old son (who can be challenging at times.) Apart from her ability to truly understand what a student needs, she is extremely skilled & talented in piano. We are so happy to have found her & look forward to many years learning from her! :)

Dr. Park is not only an incredible cellist but the best cello teacher you could hope for. He guides you to improve technically and musically, asking questions along the way so that his students have their own realizations and each form their own musical identity. His Socratic approach meant that I always left my lessons feeling inspired and even more fascinated about music than before.

Austin has been teaching my children piano for the past 1.5 years remotely, and I couldn't be more pleased with the progress they've made under his guidance! From the very beginning, Austin has shown an exceptional ability to connect with each child, understanding their individual learning styles and adapting his teaching methods accordingly. This personalized approach has not only made learning piano enjoyable for the kids but has also significantly accelerated their skill development. One of Austin's standout qualities is his patience. He is always calm and encouraging, even when the kids are struggling with a new concept or piece. His positive reinforcement and gentle corrections have helped build their confidence, making them eager to practice and improve. The growth in my children's piano knowledge and skill since starting lessons with Austin is truly remarkable. They have gone from being complete beginners to confidently playing intermediate pieces, understanding music theory, and even experimenting with composing their own music. Austin's comprehensive teaching style, which balances technical proficiency with creative expression, has been instrumental in this development. Overall, Austin is an outstanding piano instructor. His dedication, adaptability, and patient demeanor make him an excellent choice for anyone looking to foster a love of music and piano proficiency in their children. We are incredibly grateful for the positive impact he has had on our kids' musical journey.
