Depending on what your teacher is offering, you may be able to purchase a lesson plan involving multiple lessons at once. Please contact us to find out more.

At some point, your teacher may offer you a subscription. If this happens, please click here to find out more.

What more, you can at any point decide to find a new teacher to learn with. Just get in touch with them and follow the same process.

Lesson prices on eStaccato

Teachers on eStaccato are free to set any price for their services. On eStaccato, teachers are organised into Bands according to their experience and recognition by the music community. The Bands are (from the highest) A, B, C and D. Bear in mind, that the Bands do not take into account the quality of lessons offered, meaning that even with Band D teacher, you may experience a fantastic lesson. However, it is recommended that beginners do not contact Band A teachers, who are almost always associated with higher education institutions, but rather look into the lower Bands to find a teacher who is working with beginners.

As a guideline, we offer the following price range table to see what you can expect from our teachers. The price will greatly depend on your chosen teacher.

Band Who Hour Rate
Highly experienced musicians and teachers associated with higher education institutions €55 and more
Highly experienced teachers with many years of teaching record €40 – €60
Graduated teachers holding a diploma in performing arts degree €30 – €50
Music students enrolled in higher education institution studying for a music degree €20 – €40

Tuition fees

It is up to your teacher whether and how they wish to charge their lesson fees, but with eStaccato, you will make sure that you will be learning with the best system for online music lessons out there, giving your teacher the chance to effectively comment on every aspect of your playing.

Guide to the tuition fees

This depends on your teacher. If your teacher wishes to offer your lessons free of charge, you will no longer need to pay any fees and you can book your lessons without additional payments. However, in most cases, teachers will charge a tuition fee just as they would do when teaching privately. Please consult your teacher to find out if, how much and how they wish to proceed with their tuitions.

This is mainly the case when you and your existing teacher already have arrangements in place solving the tuition. With your subscription, you can continue with your payments the way you are used to. Easy!

Good to know

Certain teachers on eStaccato do not offer subscriptions to their students. If you want to have a lesson with such a teacher, you will need to pay their full lesson price through eStaccato. In that case, the lesson fee could be higher to count for the additional commission. However, if you have an active subcription, you will be refunded any additional service fees involved in the form of a credit for your next subscription payment. This way you can rest assured to always get the best deal possible.
