Piano Lesson Rates
Can you share with me what you pay for piano lessons? I've gotten a quote from someone but it seemed rather high. I may just be out of touch on this though. I'll have 3 kids taking lessons.

Thanks! I have someone who will charge $54 per child / per month for 20 minutes per week. My other option is $90 per month for 30 minutes per child.

My mom taught piano for a long time. I think she charged $20 for a half hour per kid. But different areas are different too.

Check with your local music store and see if they offer group or individual piano lessons and then see what they charge for X amount of weeks. You will then be able to base your quote to see if it is too high.

I pay $30 for 1/2 hour. It is kind of high but she comes to my house so I don't have to drag 4 kids around.

I would say the average is $30 for a 30 minute lesson

My friend pays $20 for a 30 minute lesson followed by 15 minutes of a computer program that the child does. My daughter takes a group class at a music school (only 2 kids in the class right now) and it breaks down to $12 per 45-minute class. Do you have a music school near you? If you think the quote is high, get some other quotes.
