How 2 Get Started

Wondering how 2 sign up and get started?

It’s simple !

First things first:

These lessons are one-on-one, personalized and customized for you, so to get started, the first thing to do is to contact Andy Wasserman’s PianoLessonCity and touch base using either this site’s CONTACT FORM, or by email or phone (contact info is located on the bottom of every page).

You will receive a quick reply, and we’ll begin finding out how we might set up the best online piano lesson course tailored just for you.


There is no fee and no obligation for any initial communications – whether by phone or email. Your tuition fees for the lessons do not begin until you decide to make your first lesson appointment to study.

And while we’re on the subject of the lesson tuition prices:

My fees are structured differently depending on the course of study, age of student, time length of lesson and other factors. I even offer scholarships and tuition discounts to promising, highly dedicated students who on a tight budget.  So although there is no set price listed on this website, we’ll go over the options available with our free initial interview communications.


Hopefully you agree that it would be helpful if you clarify your thoughts with some relevant information in order to explore the possibilities of us working together. It will get things going in our initial free consultation to assist you in determining if Piano Lesson City’s online piano lessons are exactly what you’re looking for.
