Barry Neikrug



I have been a private piano teacher for the past 25 plus years. I give 1 hour lessons at the student's home.

The lineage: I studied with Leonard Shure (over 8years), who studied with Schnabel, who studied with Leschetizky, who studied with Czerny, who studied piano with Beethoven.

What I am offering: A short, free, piano lesson, to anyone... to see if there is an interest in pursuing learning how to play the piano. I have a particular specialty in teaching beginners.


Barry Neikrug comes from an illustrious musical family. His mother was a child prodigy cellist, playing her first concert at age 7. His father, George Neikrug, is considered one of the top 3 cellists of his generation. Marc Neikrug, his brother tours, with Pinchas Zuckerman as his accompanist. His grandfather was the conductor for Russian Tzar Nicholas II. Barry studied under Leonard Shure who was a protégé of Schnabel in Berlin in the 1930s. Schnabel’s lineage traces back to Beethoven. Barry has performed extensively on national tours. After performing his own one-man show, Searching for a Genius Piano Teacher, he went on a national tour with the hit Canadian show, Two Pianos/Four Hands.
