i'm a piano teacher and my rate is $120 for every 4 lessons, the lesson is only counted when each lesson occurs, so u won't lose any lesson due to public holiday or any other reasons (unlike in music school)

if u expect the teacher to go over to students' place, there will be additional charge $20-$40 depending on location :) hope it helps

I believe her charges are reasonable - like $80/mth for beginners, then $120/mth for grades 1 & 2 and then $160 for grade 3... She lives in Bishan Park Condo - Sin Ming Walk. Any one interested may pm me or contact me at punggolow@yahoo.com.sg for her details :)
Just an update:
She prefers to teach students 7 years and above.
Could a Karen Chan pls email or pm me again for her contact? I couldn't reply to your email add given. Thanks.

Hi, I am wondering, does the qualification also plays a part in the charges of the piano teacher? Are there any degree can take in Singapore for music and then be a piano teacher or it must be taken in overseas school? Just curious to know. TIA :D

Yes, a teacher's qualification will affect the charges. Most teachers would have attained a Diploma, whether teaching or performing, which can be taken locally (just like all graded exams). There's also Yong Siew Toh Conservatory or NAFA which gives a diploma cert or Bachelor degree.

Hi, parents.

Any recommendation for a good home piano teacher who can interact well with children? Chemistry between teacher and children very important.

Many thanks!
