Everyone loves a piano teacher! That is … until it’s time to practice. Then you have both kids and adults alike cursing your name. Regardless, you push through, giving people the skills they need to further their love of music performance.
Many people have ‘learn to play piano’ on their bucket list. Having a piano teacher website is a great way for those people to find and hire you. Building a website may seem daunting, but using the Bandzoogle sitebuilder we’ve got you covered. The following piano teacher website design tips will help get you started.
The first thing a person will see when they find your website is the homepage. For this reason you want it to catch your visitors attention right away. In website design there’s a concept called the five second rule. If your visitor can’t figure out who you are and what you do in the first five seconds, most likely they will click off your page.
Ciara de Leon is a great example of a homepage that gets right to the point. Her header image states clearly that she runs a piano and voice studio. If you scroll down just a bit more she has a student testimonial and what specifically she offers.
This gets visitors comfortable that they are in the right place to explore more of her website. You’ll also notice that Ciara offers a student login in the menu. This reassures visitors that should they hire her they too would have private access to communicate through the learning process.
The layout of your about page should be simple with a nice mix of text and images. John Tyson’s “Meet the Teacher” page is a great example.
John organizes the page with his bio on the left and images in a sidebar to the right. Another option to organize the page is to place an image in between paragraphs. Either way, you want to make sure to add photos so the page isn’t too text heavy.
John also offers a professional and personal bio. This is great as it gets visitors to relate with him as not only an instructor but a music lover as well. In addition to your longer bio, you can also offer a short blurb at the top that describes who you are, what you do and where you teach. That would be helpful if someone is in a hurry and just wants to know the basics.
As a visitor starts to feel comfortable with you, the next step is getting them to resonate with your teaching style.
Heather Kelly of Kelly Piano Studio makes sure potential students have all the info they need before making a decision. She dedicates two subpages for lesson information. The first shows the lesson packages and the second her teaching philosophy. Offering different packages welcomes students of all ages and skill levels.
To designate each package Heather uses our styled sections option. This option allows you to add a color or image behind feature blocks. It makes for a very stylish and organized page.
People buy from folks they know and trust. When someone is looking for a piano teacher they may not know you, so it’s important to establish trust as soon as possible. One way to do this is by confirmation from other people. A great way to do this is through student testimonials.
Marco Ricciardi of Piano by Ear does a great job on his reviews page.
By adding the stars it shows each student has had the best service experience possible with Marco. When possible it’s also best to add the client’s image. This legitimizes the text and shows potential clients you’ve worked with real people.

When designing your store page you’ll want to make sure it’s easy to buy from you. Avoid adding too much text to this page and keep it clutter free. Only add the necessary information a customer needs to understand what they are getting and a clear way to buy.
Gali Piano’s tutorials page is set up beautifully. He starts with an introduction explaining what you are getting with each purchase.
From there, he puts each song in its own section with two versions. This makes the page flow nicely and shows there’s a lot of variety to choose from.
Many piano teachers are also working musicians as well. If this describes you, your website can be a hub for all your projects. Keith James is an in-demand performer, DJ and instructor. With so many moving parts he’s made sure each page on his website has a purpose.
His lessons page gives a summary view of what he offers and a way to contact him for more information. When organizing your pages think about it from a visitors perspective. Make sure it’s visually pleasing to the eye and only pertinent information makes it on the website.
After checking out the rest of your pages, potential students may want to get in touch. Make it easy for them to contact you by using a custom form. The most common fields are name, email, and message as seen on Mark Davis’ Contact page.
Adding a mailing list signup form to this page gives you access to stay in touch with interested visitors. Consider sending a newsletter out each month with piano techniques and tips. This will show potential students that you know your stuff and are thoughtful enough to share it with them.
The Contact page is also the last page in your menu. Adding social media links here will encourage visitors to transition off your website and follow you on other social pages as well. Anytime you post new material to social media this will make it easier for them to share it to others as well.
