About this pro

I have more than 20 years of US teaching experience and work with high profile families within music and entertainment industry. My students achieve outstanding scores on NYSSMA (New York State exam) and 10 points higher than average on the Royal Conservatory Exam (National recognized). Many of my students preformed in the Carnegie Hall and some of them were accepted to the Manhattan School of Music.

Mastery at the piano involves not only being able to play the correct notes at the correct time, but also being able to express feelings and share stories through music making. It is my goal to develop in each of my students a comprehensive understanding of music that enables them to play the piano with utmost enjoyment and musicality. Even during the earliest stages of piano study, I am committed to teaching students how to make a piece of music sound communicative and beautiful. This focus on artistry and creativity enables the students’ individuality to shine through their music.

    We love Ms. Butkov. My daughter is learning piano from her since 4 years old for 3 years now. We are so lucky to have Ms. Butkov who is very talented as a pianist and passionate about teaching. Highly recommended.

  • Megan Andujar

    Mrs. Helen Butkov is as superb a pianist as she is an instructor. Her unwavering passion for music and sincere love for her students make her very inspirational as well as a pleasure to work with. Using decades of knowledge and experience, she instills a great love for music in all of her students. Although I have studied piano for about ten years, my most significant improvements have been made working with Mrs. Butkov for the last five years. Her musicality, versatility, and dedication certainly set her apart from every other piano teacher I've had. I would highly recommend her to anyone wanting to reach their full potential in being trained by someone extremely talented, warmhearted, and motivational.
