Prices are Sometimes Based on Piano Teaching Experience

The cost of private piano lessons in Toronto depends on teaching experience. Not all piano teachers in Toronto charge $60 per lesson.  Sometimes they’ll charge less. There are a few for  reasons for this.

1: The teacher may be new to Toronto and they want to build up their student roster, so they charge less.

2: They have recently graduated from music school and don’t have years of teaching experience under their belt.

3: They cater mostly to kids and beginners, therefore they don’t charge as much.

This doesn’t mean they are bad teachers.  *Do beware of hiring piano teachers from websites that don’t make sure their teachers have proper teaching credentials.

Where can I learn piano for free?

Exchange of service:

If you don’t want to pay for piano lessons, you can reach out to a piano teacher and propose an exchange of service.  For example if you have skills in marketing, piano teachers are often in need of this skill.  Other skills that might be useful to piano teachers are social media promotion, video production, audio recording, massage therapy and more.

Online Resources:

There are a plethora of free online resources for learning piano. Zach Evan’s piano university is a great starting point. You can also do a Youtube search to learn any popular song by ear.  For example, I recently taught a student: Story of My Life by One Direction, from using a youtube video only.  Slow the video down in the settings bar and work on the song at your own pace.  It is not essential to learn to read music if your objective is simply to play as a hobby.
