She cares about her students and, as a result, her students are motivated to work hard and become their best. She is well organized and is good at knowing how to challenge students enough to keep them moving forward but not too much that they become overly discouraged.

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?

Nicole is amazing! We feel so grateful we found her. Her knowledge and patience is nothing short of remarkable! We’ve been so impressed with the details she put into technique. We seriously feel like we are her only students because of how personalized her teaching has been. I can’t believe the progress my daughter had made from only a few months of lessons. Nicole is one of a kind and her talent of teaching is outstanding. Even Her ability to remember the tiniest of information regarding previous lessons, comments, questions & my my daughter’s interests blows me away! I would recommend her a thousand times over!!

My 10-year-old has been having violin lessons with Young for almost 2 years now, and we absolutely adore her! She is punctual, passionate, and responsible, but most importantly, she is great at teaching. Young challenges her students when they are performing well, and she is very kind and precise in her instruction. While she is extremely kind, she also pays close attention to technique. My child thoroughly enjoys playing the violin and takes great pride in maintaining good technique taught by Ms. Young.

Kerri is a fantastic teacher for both voice and piano. She is enthusiastic and relates well to kids of all ages (I've had kids from 8yo or so through late teens take from her). She knows what she is doing and is an excellent teacher.

Kait makes everything so easy to understand! Also, my lessons with her are really productive and fun. She has a great sense of humor and is both super intelligent and humble. She has an amazing voice and has been able to already help me sing things that before were really hard. Lessons are a time I look forward to. I feel like she really takes the time to not only "get me" but to check in and see how I'm really doing each time we meet. We've met twice so far and I can't wait for our next session! HIGHLY recommend Kait.

My 16 years old son and 14 years daughter have been with Tonya for more than 5 years. They started with 30 minutes each to 45 minutes each now. Tonya is ALWAYS very welcoming and the ambiance to learn piano is positive and inspiring. My children have learned so much and look forward to their weekly visits. Tonya always sends home some pieces to practice on and is always so patient when them. She works at my children’s paces, but also encouraging them to try harder music pieces. I love hearing my children practice at home, at recitals, and at competitions. They are inspired to do good and learn because Tonya inspires them to do so.
