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?

Yes, you can learn to play piano online through a webcam or virtual tutorials. Search our list of online piano teacher near you to find an instructor. Online piano lessons are often more convenient than in-person lessons and cost 20% less on average.

How do I select a piano teacher?

Start by searching our list of piano teachers, then:

  • Get at least three free estimates to compare.
  • Read reviews on Lessons and Google if possible.
  • Ask for references from current or recent students.
  • Make sure they are kind and personable, especially when with children.
  • Get a written estimate and schedule before the first lesson.
  • Avoid making a large payment up front. Follow a payment plan instead.

After asking questions and browsing reviews, hire the best piano instructor in your area.

What questions should I ask piano instructors?

  • How long have you been teaching piano?
  • Do you have a degree in music?
  • What age do you typically teach?
  • What genre of piano do you specialize in?
  • Will you give me a contract or payment arrangement in writing?

Reviews for Richmond piano teachers

Ping H.
I have had the pleasure of knowing Sandra for the past ten years, during which time my daughter Ayn has been taking piano lessons from her. Sandra is an incredibly talented pianist and teacher. She has a deep understanding of music and a passion for teaching that is evident in her work. She is able to tailor her lessons to the individual needs of each student, and she always goes the extra mile to help her students reach their full potential. My daughter has made tremendous progress under Sandra's instruction. She has learned to play a variety of pieces from different genres, and she has developed a strong foundation in music theory. Sandra has also helped her to develop her own musical voice, and she has encouraged her to be creative and expressive in her playing. In addition to her teaching skills, Sandra is also a kind and patient person. She is always willing to answer her questions and help her to overcome challenges. She creates a positive and supportive learning environment, and my daughter always looks forward to her piano lessons. I highly recommend Sandra Holzbach for any students who is seeking a piano teacher. Thanks, Ping
