If you are looking to encourage your child’s musical ability or maybe even rediscover your own musical talent, music lessons are a great place to start. Finding the perfect music teacher can be a complex equation when interests, schedules and cost are factored in. If the perfect teacher for your child doesn’t happen to live 3 doors down from your house, online music lessons could be just the answer and here’s why:
The price for music lessons can range from $15 to $40 for a 30 minute session. The price a teacher charges is based on their own education and years of experience. While longer lessons (45-60 minutes) are available its safe to assume that a 30 minute lesson will suffice for most beginners and children. In order to best learn an instrument, consistent lessons at least weekly are most effective. So, at $25 per music lesson for, say, 50 weeks you’re looking at $1250 per year.
However, there are a few additional factors that influence the cost associated with learning to play an instrument like the guitar, piano or saxophone. If you happen to live in a large metropolitan area, the rates teachers charge will be higher. If the teacher makes house visits, their price will reflect their travel expenses. If you are the one doing the traveling you will certainly feel the added gas expense. You’ll also find yourself spending more time in the car driving to and from and waiting during the lessons each week. It all starts to add up.
