When you are starting piano lessons, either for yourself or for your child, one of the very first questions that will come to mind is – how much does it really cost for the student to attain an ABRSM Grade 8?
Although there is no standard rules or regulations for the prices that private piano teachers in Singapore will charge, the following table showing piano lesson fees in Singapore can show you a rough estimate of the prices that majority of teachers in Singapore charge.
As you will notice, all teachers teach 4 times a month, so you will need to multiply the lesson fees by 4. Lesson frequency MAY increase when it is nearer to exams, and in that situation, you will need to estimate accordingly. However, 4 times a month is the norm.
Also, in the table below, you will notice that private piano lesson durations in Singapore are 45 minutes in length from Grade 1 to Grade 4, and increases to 1 hour for Grade 5 and above. This is because there is more lesson content needed to be taught for Grade 5 and above, so lessons will naturally be longer in length.

If you find the above expensive, then one way to save on piano lessons costs is to first send your child to the teacher’s home to learn piano. If he or she is truly interested, and stays interested in learning music and playing the piano even after several months or perhaps a year, you could then safely invest in purchasing a piano. This is a way to prevent unnecessary outlay of cash in purchasing the piano in the event that your child’s interest in learning is just temporary.
