However, to find someone with those gifts who is also a skilled teacher is rare. Dr. Freeman is one such treasure. Her natural ability to connect, and share genuine enthusiasm and love for music, with her students is complemented by her skillful pedagogy and well cultivated instructional strategies.

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?

When hiring piano teachers near you, ask the following questions:

  • 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?
  • Will you allow me to choose some or all of the songs we practice?

My daughter took piano lessons with Vlada for 5 years--I specifically searched for a Russian teacher because I knew about their exacting hand placement and methods. Emma was years ahead of other students. When we moved, the pianist for the Milwaukee ballet agreed to give her lessons after hearing her audition (she didn't take students but was Russian so I begged). Totally wonderful experience--my daughter learned alot and progressed well beyond her peers. When we went to competitions, kids who were 12 were playing what my daughter played at 7. I could see the difference Vlada's tutelage had made and so could the judges

Daniel has been fantastic with my 8 year old. He has been taking lessons with Daniel for almost a year now and his growth has been incredible. Daniel has taught my son to play with music that my son chooses and now he can just look at any chord sheet and just play. It’s unbelievable. If you are hesitant about virtual, I just want to say how awesome Daniel is with it. He catches everything. He is so observant. I couldn’t recommend him enough!

Tommy has been a friend and music business mentor to me for many, many years. He has lived and worked in two of the major music cities in the US (Nashville and Austin) and has worked with well known artists and indie up-and-comers. He knows his way around not only the business side, but the recording studio, the live venue, the travel, the songwriting, the band dynamic; pretty much anything about the entertainment industry He's a true pro that brings a positive attitude to his work that is fun and infectious among his colleagues and students. I highly recommend working with Tommy Held!
