Belinda B. says, "I have been with ASMM for a few years now. One of the best things I love about taking lessons with Artelia is her patience. Her ability to explain things in a way that I can understand it is an absolute gift. I always enjoy learning the material she presents and the lessons are always so intriguing and interesting. She is incredibly knowledgeable and passionate about what she teaches and that is evident as she's teaching. She makes sure you know the fundamentals first and build from there.

I have over 15 years of experience teaching piano. I was raised in a musical family and began taking lessons from my father at age 4 1/2. I obtained a Bachelor of Music degree from Augusta University. I also play flute and sing professionally. Playing the piano is a wonderful skill to have. With diligence, and discipline, a student can become proficient and find joy in their accomplishment. I teach in person as well as online. I include technique and theory in my lessons. Students begin with Method books, and then branch off into styles of classical, jazz, and pop.

Your Piano Lessons questions, answered

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Lessons.

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.

Can you learn to play piano online?
