Our lesson fees are the same price for everyone. There is no difference in fees based on age, level, location or what you are learning.
It takes just as much time and energy from your teacher to prepare, review and mark material submitted by a beginner student who is 8 years old, or a 15-year-old preparing for a 6th grade exam.
All students pay the same lesson fee, and the lesson fee is non-negotiable.
Will lesson fees ever change?
Yes. The lesson fee will increase slightly every 2 years (from July 1 in every even year [2022, 2024, 2026 etc], to stay in line with inflation. Please read this article for further details on this.
Does Virtual Piano Academy offer discounts on lesson fees?
No, we don't. Our price reflects the quality of teachers, feedback and education you receive at Virtual Piano Academy. We tailor lessons to your goals and offer personalised weekly feedback on your progress, just like a real-world piano lesson (except 100% digital).
We aim to provide the same rigorous tuition that you would receive from an in-person lesson, with the convenience of it all being online.
There are also many additional benefits you get from having lessons 100% online. Not only do you receive a weekly video lesson (known as a Weekly Showcase), you learn through interactive digital games; you receive demonstration videos that you can watch over and over to help your practice; we step you through exactly what you need to do for your practice each week and outline this clearly for you to follow; we help you track your practice; you can see practice statistics from your fellow learners; you can interact with other students and parents on The Academy HIVE; you can participate in our Q&A sessions, monthly challenges, piano parades, and other community activities; you can access interactive learning resources through our Topic of the Month; you can do exams; you have access to our digital sheet music library; you receive a monthly progress report...and heaps more. All of this is included in your lesson fee!
If you’re looking for a cheaper option, with less experienced teachers and less attention to providing quality, interactive and personalised music education, Virtual Piano Academy probably isn’t the right fit for you.
What about discounts for multiple children from one family?
Our lesson prices cover feedback, support and tuition time for ONE student, regardless of how many siblings they have at Virtual Piano Academy. So no, there are no discounts offered for multiple children from one family.
