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?

Reviews for Alexandria piano teachers

Recent success stories from people in the Alexandria area.
I took lessons with Greg when I was a little kid...I have great memories of learning Beatles tunes while Greg belted out the lyrics beside me. Now, playing the piano is a major source of joy in my life, and for that I thank Greg.
Gregory - rock and jazz piano
Ideal instructor in so many way! Able to tailor lessons to my particular needs and tastes (mostly baroque) though he encourages me to push beyond my meager abilities. As an aging baby boomer myself, I am so happy to find someone who has allowed me to accomplish a lifelong dream: to play better than I did when I took lessons as a kid. Joe emphasizes good technique but still makes lessons fun. Definitely 5 stars!
