A teacher of mine once said if you aim for perfection, you get to be pretty darn good. I like to start with a small amount of material that the student can play very well, and use that to refine the basics. By taking a thorough approach (and playing beautiful music), the entire world of piano and music will slowly and surely open up to the pupil.  In my opinion, tone production and rhythm are the major factors that distinguish a great pianist (and make playing the most satisfying), so this is the major focus of our work. I have a very thorough understanding of proper technique and can prescribe exercises that will strengthen one's weakne ... View Profile

New York Piano Lessons

(74 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.
