Music Lessons Cost 2021

$55 is the average cost of music lessons in the year 2021, with prices ranging from $30-$80+ in the U.S. This article will provide details of the lessons and factors that influence overall cost.

Low Cost Lessons

If you’re looking to spend between $30-$50 per lesson, you can still get some quality instruction. Normally, these lessons will be held at a music studio, store or even the instructor’s home. Having the instructor come to you will certainly drive up costs. One thing to be mindful of is lessons given out in a music store. Sometimes these instructors can only take home a percentage of the overall lesson price. This can cause them to be less motivated to help you grow as a musician. This price range can also indicate that your instructor is not as experienced as others currently giving lessons.

Average Cost Music Lessons

The average cost of music lessons ranges between $50-$80 per lesson. In this price range, the lesson can be held at the instructor’s home, in addition to a studio or store. You can save money by purchasing a bundle of lessons or opting for just two lessons per month. Single lessons will typically cost more than package deals, so do your research and call around before settling on a specific instructor.

High Cost Music Lessons

Higher cost music lessons tend to start at $80+. These lessons should last at least 60 minutes long. Most instructors charging $80 or more will also be top-notch instructors with years of musical experience. If you wish to have the instructor come to your home for the lesson, that is certainly possible in this price range.

Cost Factors

Here are a few factors that can either cause your music lesson costs to increase or decrease:

  • Experience level of the student.
  • Experience level of the instructor.
  • Instrument of choice.
  • Time of lesson.
  • Location of lesson.

The level of experience of the student and teacher tends to go hand in hand. It is recommended that beginners who are serious about learning a new instrument choose an instructor with as much experience as possible. Of course, that is not always so easy, since the most experienced instructors will charge the highest rates. Most experienced players will opt for the most experienced instructors, as well. But, for those on a budget, choosing an instructor with less than 20 years of experience can still be worthwhile.

Other variables that can impact the overall cost of the lesson include instrument, time and location of the lesson. Most instructors will offer a variety of lesson plans. Usually, 30-minute, 45-minute, 60-minute or 90-minute lessons will be offered. The longer the lesson lasts, the more it costs, obviously. Now, for busier students, a longer one-time lesson may be the way to go instead of purchasing a bundle of weekly lessons. Committing to one lesson for 90 minutes may be a lot easier of a task than committing to 30-minute lessons every week for a month. Choose the lesson plan that works best for your schedule.

Location of the lesson will either increase or decrease the price. Location simply refers to where the physical lesson takes place, not the state or city one requests lessons in. If you take a lesson at either a studio or the instructor’s home, chances are you will save money. If you’d rather hold the lesson at your home, you must be willing to pay for the instructor’s travel expenses, including gas and transportation of the instrument. At-home lessons offer convenience for the student, but will certainly cost more over time.
