Can my child make a full time income as a piano teacher in Singapore?

First of all, by asking the above question, you are assuming your child wants to become a piano teacher. Perhaps he or she is just interested in learning the piano? If you do not have the financial means to support his or her interests, then politely decline him or her. But if you do have the ability, then why not let him or her learn the piano?

Your child is your child, not a financial asset in which every investment in your child has to bring back monetary gains. You can get lots of benefits by simply allowing your child to pursue his or her passion. In my humble opinion, there is nothing better than knowing I made my kids happy.

But, in case he or she also wants to consider becoming a piano teacher, then the answer is yes. You can make a full time income of between $3000 to $6500 per month in Singapore as a private piano teacher working 5-8 hours a day. If your child works more, or is extremely popular as a private piano teacher, he or she will make even more!

Unless you want your child to buy a bungalow, even buying any HDB 5 room flat or executive condominium is no problem for your child as a private piano teacher in future too!

Will taking piano lessons cause a drop in my child’s academic results as a result of lack of time?

This is really dependent on your child’s ability to manage his or her own time. There is no definite answer to this. This is about teaching your child management of his or her time.

On the other hand, if he or she is already going for 5 tuition classes other than his or her school schedule, then you may want to reconsider.

Will my child hate me for making him or her learn the piano?

This is why you should never be an irresponsible adult, and make sure that every stake holder’s point of view is taken into account. You brought your child into this world, and he or she did not choose to be so. You both are tied together by destiny or whatever you so wish to believe. However, you also need to respect your child’s opinion. Being a tiger mum or dad could be one of the worst things you can ever do to your child, and lead to future resentment. In that case, forcing your child to learn the piano may cause him or her to hate you.

However, if your child is also keen to learn music and has a passion for playing the piano, then by all means go forward with it if you have the financial means to allow your child to attend piano lessons! This is because learning the piano will only bring benefits to your child as mentioned above. However, this cannot be at the expense of your child’s own dreams and aspirations and interests.
