Hi Moms! I am hoping someone can refer me to a piano teacher that would come in the home to teach my 7 yr old daughter. Recommendations, typical cost, or anything else would be so appreciated! We are located in Homer Glen.

What can I do next?

Not sure if you want someone to come to your home or just want someone who teaches in their home. My co-worker lives in Lockport and teaches in her home. She lives right down from Walmart toward Cedar Road. She is a preschool teacher and very patient and knowledgable. Both my boys have had her and liked her very much.
She charges $12 for a half an hour and is filling up fast. You can e-mail her at- ____@____.com
Hope that helps!

I posted about a piano teacher probably a month ago. Unfortunately there aren't any that I found that come to your house and I believe the reason is that there may be too many distractions at the child's own home.

We just signed my daughter who is almost 7 up with the teacher someone else mentioned. Mrs. Lombardo. She is very experienced and was quick to respond to my call. She is a preschool teacher so I imagine her patience is "overflowing" (compared to me who has very little!!)

In looking for a teacher I found that the charges vary grossly from $12 - $28 a half an hour. The instructional materials are in addition to that.

Hope this helps.

I don't know of a teacher that does in-home lessons. I do know of some families from your area that use Community Christian Church School for the Arts. Their lessons run abput $19 to $19.50 per half hour. They offer other lessons and classes as well. I am finding most in-home or after school private lesson instructors charge $22 and more. Hope that helps with the cost question.

Hello - just wondering who you found... I'm now looking for my 6 yo daughter and we live in Homer Glen also. I checked Allegro and they seem expensive, especially when considering that it is for group lessons.

Thanks!

Hi R.,

My uncle is a piano teacher. He has another job, but I think he does this on the weekends. He is wonderful and has taught my teen brother and sister. Please send me a private message for his contact info.
