The cost of lessons varies depending on where you go. Personal tuition is the best way to learn, and usually costs about £30.00 per hour. My hourly rate is around £24.00.
If you are a beginner, then I usually recommend 30 minute lessons to begin with @ £12.00. This would usually involve learning the basic scales and keys, along with playing a few songs as well. Once you can read music to a good standard and have progressed onto the grade 1 pieces, then 40 minutes is advisable at £16.00.
