So How Much Are Piano Lessons?
Great question and I’ll answer that in a sec. I want you to know something about me first so we’re both on the same page. I value honesty, education, and being transparent, which is why I’ll provide you with answers to all of your questions so you can feel confident about the piano studio you choose.
However, every studio has different pricing so I am going to give you a birds-eye view of the industry as a whole then dive into my tuition.
I’m going to do my best to explain to you the different things that affect piano lesson pricing so you have an idea of what to expect before you contact a studio. Fair enough? Oh, by the way, if you want a more in-depth look at pricing, read my article “How Much Do Piano Lessons Cost | The Ultimate Guide.”
Ok, let’s get started.
What Do I Need to Get Started?
You need an instrument. If you don’t have a piano, I recommend a digital piano or keyboard with 88, fully-weighted keys such as the Yamaha P45. Make sure you get a bench and pedal, too. You’ll also need a notebook for your assignments, a pencil, a folder/binder, and a metronome.
Factors That Influence Tuition
No matter where you take lessons or what studio you choose, there are five main things that affect how much you’ll be investing in piano lessons. These five things are business’ overhead, lesson location, lesson length, your skill level, and the education level of the teacher.
Ways You Can Save Money
Your biggest investment will be the instrument. I would buy this used if you can. Facebook marketplace, OfferUp, and eBay are great places to look for used pianos. You can even find acoustic pianos for free on the Facebook marketplace. You’ll be able to save hundreds by buying used.

What Are Elite Lessons Like?
These are 1-on-1 advanced lessons.
During the one hour lesson we focus on:
- Advanced music
- College-level music theory
- Memory training
- Performance skills
- Advanced technique and so much more
Students in these lessons must consistently practice 6-7 hours each week to remain in the program.
These lessons are geared towards students who are training for upper NYSSMA levels, are looking to train for music school auditions or competitions…
…or simply just play music at a super high level.
