Piano Lessons Pricing

Pricing for Piano Lessons

Piano Forte Music School offers a unique tuition program unlike the pricing for piano lessons at other schools in the Bay Area. Piano instruction is offered as a weekly 30, 45, or 60-minute private lesson, depending on the level. Plus, registration, the initial evaluation and first lesson are free. As every student is different, lessons are customized to meet the needs of the individual student. The school offers piano lessons for students of all ages. Children from 5 years on up, teens and adults are all welcome. Also, unlike other music schools, pricing for piano lessons is based on a much more flexible monthly tuition plan instead of semester tuition. Piano Forte recitals are available at no cost so family and friends can share in the student’s musical journey.
