  • My daughter charges $30/hr. and the student comes to her and that is low compared to others. It probably depends where you live, the amount of education the teacher has. I have paid as much as $60/hr for my children's violin and cello lessons. Hope that helps

  • My mom pays $10 for 45 minutes of lessons for my sister, but she is just a beginner. The highest level her teacher teaches is only like $30 for 45 minutes though. If you have any music stores near you (that sell like sheet music and band instruments) I would check them out they can usually at least refer you to good teachers and you may be able to get a better price

  • When I took lessons about 10 years ago it was $6 for 30 minutes and I went to her house.

  • My music teachers usually charged $60-$100 per hour, but didn't charge for extra rehearsals for competitions, monthly Saturday informal recitals, and formal parent recitals. Most of my teacher's students ended up majoring in music. i didn't. It depends heavily on the area, the level of education of your teacher, and the level you want your child to play.
