A website is a powerful tool for any musician. It can be used to promote yourself, sell your music, teach and get gigs.

If you are thinking about getting a website I would recommend having one within the next 12 months at the very latest. If you wait too long it will be harder to take advantage of all that your website has to offer. Here are some reasons why:

Promotion – In this day and age people usually find artists online before anywhere else

  • Selling music – You don’t want someone who likes how you play live on Youtube but not in person because they didn’t buy any CDs and then lose interest when they see an album price on iTunes or Amazon etc… People don’t know what they want until they see it!
  • Teaching – More than ever before there are many resources available online that allow students from around the world an opportunity to learn from teachers like yourself via distance learning platforms such as Skype lessons where traditional classroom settings may not exist due to either physical location constraints or financial limitations such as those associated with travel costs which can become burdensome over time (especially if planning ahead).

One of the most important things to consider when creating your website is how you will use it. You need to decide what types of content will be included on your website and how you’re going to use that content for marketing purposes. If your goal is simply to share information about yourself or your music, then a simple blog or portfolio site may be enough.

How to create my website?

  • You can create a website using a website builder or you can hire a web designer to do it for you.
  • Your website will need to include:
  • A homepage with an about section, your bio and contact information.
  • An audio player of some kind (iTunes, SoundCloud) so that people can listen to your music on the web.
  • Make sure that you have some way of contacting you (email address, phone number) so that people who want to book you for gigs or lessons can do so easily.

A page that lists your musical accomplishments: awards, publications, performances and so on.

Is it expensive to create a website?

There are several ways to create a website:

  • Website Builder – If you choose this option, you will need to buy the domain and hosting separately. The cost of these services depends on the package that you choose. Most website builders offer free templates, but if you want to customize your own design there are usually additional fees involved. The good news is that most of them have an easy-to-use editor so that even non-tech savvy people can work on their own website without hiring an expert web designer or agency.
  • Web Designer / Agencies – If you want someone else to build your site for you, then it may be best to hire a professional who knows what they’re doing! You can easily find freelance web designers through sites like Upwork or PeoplePerHour (or even just post something on Facebook and see who responds). When hiring someone from these platforms make sure they know what they’re doing and ask for references if possible before committing any time or money into this project with them!
  • Mix of Both – Some agencies, such as Ozyss.co, have created a mix of the two solutions so that you only benefit from the advantages. By creating pre-designed templates they can reduce the amount of time needed to develop the website and provide you with a high-quality website at a lower cost. In addition, they provide a full customer service that is difficult to get with website builder solutions;


I hope that you’ve gained some insight into the world of classical pianists and websites. I believe that if you want to be successful, you need a website. Not only does it help people find out about your music, but it also helps them connect with you on a deeper level.
