Most piano lessons for kids cost $30 to $50 per class for 30-minutes sessions. Piano lessons can cost anywhere from $40 to $80 for an hour. If you're in a group lesson, it costs $20 to $50 per class. You typically pay $150 to $360 every month for piano lessons.
If you have a private piano teacher come to you, costs may increase to cover their transportation fees.
Your kid can start piano lessons when they're as young as 4 years old if they can focus well. Most kids start learning piano when they're between 5 to 9 years old. Children can begin learning to play the piano at any age.
More important than starting at a certain age is that children get lessons from a good teacher where they receive helpful feedback.
How many piano lessons a kid needs will depend on how much time they spend practicing and how quickly they remember and apply the lessons. Piano lessons for a kid are typically 4 to 5 times per month.
Online piano lessons do work for kids as long as you've got a fast and reliable Internet connection at home and a great teacher to give real-time feedback. However, pre-recorded lessons online aren't as helpful without custom feedback on how to improve like you get from a private teacher.
Find online piano lessons for kids by searching the listings here on the Lessons website. Some music schools have virtual lessons online, and freelance musicians typically advertise virtual lessons through these schools.
