Piano Lesson Basics

Most of what we do is private lessons and piano is one of our main focuses. The piano is an amazing, magical instrument. It’s the perfect place for most students to start. Piano teaches technique and dexterity, theory and note reading, and provides a simple, linear road map of how music works. Once you have that foundation, you can take it anywhere: from impressive classical pieces, to your favorite pop song, to adding another instrument to your resume. Piano lessons are absolutely the best way for every music lover to immerse themselves in music.

My son has been taking piano lessons at Musicologie for three years and he now has a love for piano that I never imagined he would have!

Lessons for Beginners

How Old Does My Child Need to be to Start Piano Lessons?

We have a rule of thumb: If your child is excited about playing music now, they should start now. We start piano students as young as four. For kids younger than four who are excited about music, we have Musicologie Junior. Many of our teachers specialize in early childhood music education. They have the skills, patience and demeanor to help young students grow.

What About Adult Beginners?

Yes! We love adults who are up for the challenge of learning to play a instrument. It’s hard work but so rewarding. We’ll help guide you towards your goals and won’t make you do endless scales or theory exercises if that’s not what you’re into.

Did you know Musicologie was voted Best Music Instruction in Columbus by readers of Columbus Parents Magazine? We’ve been among the top studios in town in the trusted family publication since we opened our doors.

Experienced Players

What about lessons for experienced piano players? If you have played before, you probably have a good idea of what you want to work on. We’ll match you with one of our advanced piano teachers. Some have doctorates and decades of experience teaching at the collegiate level. Some have masters degrees in piano pedagogy or have toured professionally as jazz sidemen. We offer a world-class, university level piano education.


Meet our piano students

Our piano students are incredibly diverse. We have 4 year olds just starting to explore music, high schoolers preparing for Berkelee auditions, and adults who have always wanted to play and are finally taking the leap.

It’s a cozy space with pianos in every practice room and opens up into a large recording studio in the back with a white grand piano, a 1975 Rhodes, a Hammond organ and lots of other keyboard toys.

Piano Lessons FAQ

Piano lessons are $32 per half hour paid monthly. All piano students sign up for a quarter of lessons. Here’s a detailed quarter schedule.
Our year is divided into four quarters that roughly coincide with the school calendar. The quarters range from 8 weeks (summer quarter) to 17 weeks (fall quarter). Every piano student commits to a full quarter of lessons at a time. If you start after the quarter has already begun, the quarter will be pro-rated for you.
Nope! You can start whenever you want. We’ll just prorate the remaining weeks of the quarter for you.
The assessment is not a test, so don’t be nervous. It’s a way for your teacher to get to know you, what you like, what your goals are, and what the best path forward is for you to get the most out of lessons. It’s also a way for you to try out your teacher before you commit to a whole quarter.
We have a studio in Grandview Heights, just west of downtown Columbus Ohio at 1400 W 3rd Ave. We are opening a new studio in Westerville at 1190 County Line Rd this year.
If your child is excited about piano, the right time is right now! We have piano students as young as 3 and 4. Our teachers are amazing at harnessing and developing young students’ passion for music. There are some instruments that are more difficult for very young students, but piano is a great place to start.
Yes. We have many older or retired adults who finally have the free time they’ve always wanted to explore music. If that’s you, you’ll fit right in. If you think you’d be more comfortable with an older teacher, we can make that happen 🙂
