Congratulations on deciding to become a pianist or having your child be a pianist! Taking piano lessons in Singapore has lots of benefits – first of all, classes are relatively cheap in Singapore. Secondly, playing the piano can improve a person’s IQ which is great for academic performance. Last but not least, at least in Singapore, learning to play the piano makes you appear more cultured and sophisticated.
Rates vary a fair bit. This is because it is dependent on whether you want to learn casually or for the purpose of passing the ABRSM graded piano examinations. When it comes to music classes for the piano ABRSM examinations, then the rates will differ and increase over the years based on the grade you are taking now. Grade 1 prices are generally around $120 to $140 for 4 lessons a month, and increases up till around $300 to $350 a month for four grade 8 music classes.
Here is a quick view at the prices in table format so that it may be easier for you to understand:
Piano Grade – Duration – Prices and Fees
Beginners – 45 mins – $130 to $160
One – 45 mins – $140 to $170
Two – 45 mins – $150 to $180

At our agency, we have teachers who specialize in ABRSM exams, and they follow a proven system with strong regimentation to help students get through the ABRSM exams easily. However, we also have other music teachers who specialize in helping students who want to master pop songs, and simply share the love of piano and music with the rest of the world. These are much more relaxed, and malleable in nature to suit casual piano students in Singapore. It all really depends on what the students want. Additionally, private lessons are much cheaper than that of school classes, simply because the teachers have no overheads to cover, and therefore no need to charge students for that.
