    Manhattan, NY · Leonard Reina

    Hi and thank you for looking into my profile. I begin every initial lesson interview with the same key questions: "What do you want to learn?" What vision of yourself do you wish to achieve at the keys? What sounds move you (and which don't)? Do you have a few songs/pieces you'd like to jump into right now? Or would you like a more systematic approach to music, building from the ground up? Whatever your answers may be to the above, my purpose as your guide is to get you from where you are to where you want to be in the shortest period of time, by providing you with the background, tools

    I believe that teaching is an essential part of being a professional musician. I find that passing on the knowledge and inspiring students is a very rewarding experience that forces me as well to keep learning and improve. For that reason, i do it with passion and dedication. I had a lot of teachers. Some were good and a lot of them were bad. I believe that music is supposed to be fun and that practicing should not choke the passion for music (even though it can if you over practice or dont practice right). I graduated Berklee College of Music at 2005 and since then played in NY, toured the

    Jonas Salk said “Good parents give their children roots and wings. Roots to know where home is, wings to fly away and exercise what’s been taught them.” A good teacher must be part working professional, part guide, part philosopher, part musician, part parent, part friend and part listener to give students roots and wings. I strive to teach my students, like myself, to never stop learning; to do their best in every endeavor; to stay present and focused in their work. As a working professional, a guide, a philosopher, a musician, a parent, a friend, and a listener, I want my students when

New York Piano Lessons

(4 reviews)

Anyone looking for a piano teacher in New York is not going to have to look for long, as the city is bursting with tutors. Finding the right teacher to suit your needs however requires a little more time and should not be rushed, as personality can be as important as teaching skills.

Piano sales and rentals in the city are at a very healthy level, and manufacturers and dealers are a good source of information on piano teachers, most of the outlets maintaining a list and knowing the teaching styles.

Manufacturers such as Steinway and Baldwin sometimes let teachers use their showrooms for student recitals, and of course there are numerous promotional events, so there will always be something of a community feel to the showrooms, rather than being simply a sales outlet. Finding an independent tutor in this way allows you to hear feedback from people within the business, and also to contact others who have gone the same route, and will be able to offer recommendations and, possibly, warnings.

There are a number of piano and music schools and between them they can offer you any style of tuition, with a reputable teacher and at rates that do not need to be expensive. Some will also conduct group sessions and recitals, and you will be meeting a whole lot of new friends if you attend any of these. For example, the Eastman Community Music School at University of Rochester offers both group and private piano lessons. The 92nd Street Y, the cultural institution and community center located on the Upper East Side of Manhattan will arrange private lessons.

The Juilliard Dance, Drama and Music School has a placement bureau that lists piano teachers in New York City, and is located at Lincoln Center Plaza in New York 10023.

Mannes School of Music makes referrals in Manhattan and is located on the Upper West Side.

Manhattan School of Music arranges private instruction and seminars, and has a distance-learning program that connects with community centers.

New York Conservatory of Music (NYCM) is on the higher East Side of Manhattan and has been in business since nineteen niety eight, founded and run by performance pianist Dr Jerzy Stryjniak and his companion Joanna. The school takes on students of all ages and abilities, and understands that many adults wish to learn the piano as a way to relieve stress and relax.

The Kaufman Music Center arranges lessons and has a young people’s division that is noted for taking care of musically gifted children.

Joria Productions on West 47th Street, the home of the West Side Dance Project and City Music Schools, offers piano lessons and has practice rooms available.

The City College of New York is particularly strong on popular music studies, while if it’s jazz piano you are after, the New York Jazz Academy is one of the fastest growing music schools in the city and offers a list of tutors that will help you develop piano technique along with an enjoyment of jazz.
