What our clients are saying
The price for private piano lessons in Vancouver averages around:
30 minutes: $30.00 CAD
45 minutes: $45.00 CAD
60 minutes: $60.00 CAD
Piano lessons generally take place once a week. This frequency gives students enough time to practise the material from their lesson. Developing good practise habits is important, therefore having 7 days between lessons gives students the right amount of time integrate the content of their lesson.
in Vancouver, a 30 minute piano lesson costs between from $20.00 CAD to $35.00 CAD, depending on the teacher.
One piano lesson a week is enough for most students. For some, an extra weekly lesson can be used to study a complementary topic such as piano technique, music theory or music history.
A second weekly lesson can also be used to revisit some of the material that was covered in the first lesson. This is useful for students who may have a bit more difficulty working on materials on their own.
To answer this question, you first need to determine what your goal is for learning the piano. For example, if you’re a beginner and you’d like to be able to read simple sheet music as well as play a few songs like Amazing Grace, or Jingle Bells, then most students can achieve this with weekly piano lessons for around 3-6 months.
On the other hand, If you would like to reach a high level, then it will take considerably longer. According to a study by a famous psychologist name Anders Ericsson, it took elite musicians studying at the best music academies in the world around 10 000 hours of practise. That is about 3 hours of daily practise for 10 years.
We recommend that children begin piano classes between 5-9 years old. Kids younger than 5 will have trouble learning because they haven’t developed the proper motor skills. That being said, children under the age of 5 can take music classes, however, they should focus on percussion, singing, and simple ear training.
Piano teachers that are gifted at teaching kids often have certain unique qualities that differ from the qualities needed for teaching adults. To learn what they are, we’ve written an article on the topic: 5 Tips for Teaching Music to Children.
If you are just starting piano lessons, you may not want to pay a huge amount for a keyboard. Especially if you want to make sure playing piano is something you will stick to in the long run. We wrote an article called the 5 Best Keyboard Pianos for Beginners and Kids (Cost-Effective) to help you find an affordable keyboard. The article also helps you understand the different factors that go into the price of a keyboard. As a piano teacher at the Royal Vale Elementary school, I’ve recommended the keyboards in this article to many of my students.

Studies have demonstrated that playing the piano is like a full body workout for the brain. No other activity engages as many parts of the brain as playing piano.
