Piano is such a wonderful instrument! It can be a key to a deep understanding of harmony and music theory. It is also really fun! Students who study with me can expect a warm, student-centered learning environment in which we learn how to comfortably navigate the keyboard in order to create beautiful, subtle expressions of human emotion. I have recently passed my Suzuki book 1-4 audition and prefer to teach using that methodology.

Awesome coaching on what I was doing wrong. Lenna showing me how to hold my hand correctly makes it so much easier to find my notes.

Dan knows how to do everything! I consider myself an advanced student, and he's able to clearly answer all of my questions and show me examples on the fly! I highly recommend him, especially if you're eager to learn quickly
Susan B.
Dan is an excellent instructor. Although I have played the piano for years, my technical skills and understanding of music theory have improved exponentially through my work with Dan. He is particularly accomplished at using multiple approaches to explain difficult concepts to ensure that I fully understand them. I highly recommend him.
Nicola H.
Have had a few lessons with Dan so far and nothing to complain about. Really this is the type of teacher I'm looking for the whole time as an adult beginner. He knows what he is doing and how to push you to the next level.

Private Piano Teacher

I bring to teaching piano an unrivalled Juilliard education, international performing and recording career, and 18 years of experience teaching students of various levels. In teaching, I see myself as my students' partner dedicated to helping them realize their full potential as budding musicians and performers. I am encouraging, enthusiastic, patient, and flexible in teaching adults and children of intermediate and advanced levels. I love finding the right individual approach with each of my students, so that they stay motivated and inspired while growing in their musical understanding and mastery.

I strongly believe that a chief tool enabling progress in all aspects of musicianship is focused listening, and see my role as a teacher to guide students in developing power and sensitivity of aural perception through concrete steps and activities. I'm deliberate in selecting and assigning a repertoire that challenges students with appropriate techniques and allows them to ...

About Gabrielius

I am currently accepting new students ages 7 and up. Why settle for piano lessons with a guitarist who also teaches drums and viola? This being NYC, start or continue your piano lessons with an actively performing and recording classical pianist with Bachelor’s, Master’s and Doctoral degrees

Gabrielius is infinitely patient, highly skilled as a teacher and pianist, and has the rare ability to correct while encouraging improvement. I have had 4 lessons with him so far, and already am playing far better than I could have imagined.
I recommend Gabrielius highly to anyone interested in learning to play the piano either for personal pleasure or even performance.
Sarah
Gabrielius is a wonderful piano teacher to our daughter. He is professional, reliable, an amazing musician. We are very happy to have found him on TakeLessons.
Cristian S.
Gabrielius teaches calmly with lots of patience, and the results are fantastic. I've seen tremendous improvement just after a few weeks, and I find his way of teaching focuses on the things that will have the most impact on your playing. He's not a teacher that will drill you endlessly, but will find easier and more organic ways to learn and love the pieces you play. I'm excited to continue my lessons, and I'm falling more and more in love with playing, practicing, learning and listening to piano.

Private Piano Teacher

Students can expect to discover or re-discover their love for music and and their own natural musical inclinations. Many students report an increased sense of joy and possibility in their own lives. Curriculum depends on level of student, but is focused on being able to play favorite songs, develop comfort and ease in playing style, and accessing creativity and originality in approach. After 3 to 6 months working with me, most students can feel comfortable calling themselves a musician!

About Matthew

I have been playing professionally for over 30 years and have taught for over 10. I am proficient on keyboards, guitar, bass, ukelele, as well as lead and harmony vocals and songwriting. My focus is on developing your musical intuition through ear training, and accessing the music within. I have a

I had a one off single lesson with Matthew, I was only in New York for a couple days and was lucky enough to get a sing writing session with him. He gave some great insight and valid techniques towards song writing. He was easy going and very friendly. Would certainly recommend.
Sami
Matt is an awesome instructor. Unlike a traditional guitar teacher, Matt understands what his students want to play, making lessons much more interesting and making practicing much easier. I've had a few lessons with Matt and have learned more in those lessons that I could have ever learned by myself. Highly recommend.
Diana
Just had my first piano lesson with Matthew today. He is a truly great artist and instructor who will teach you not just about the playing technique but about the music theory/history behind it. Would definitely recommend!

My experience with Linda was great! I’ve only had one lesson with her but she was patient and understanding even though I was super nervous. She pushed me to do more and I’ve become more confident. I look forward to continue working with her :)

Private Piano Teacher

I have been teaching piano for over 40 years, full-time for the past 15. Besides the actual repertoire, technique and theory are always included in my lessons because they are essential. Sight reading and ear training are also included in some lessons.

I stress accuracy in playing and attention to details! I also teach my students HOW to practice. Slow, accurate practice is the answer. Practicing takes patience!

Please note: Home lessons must be at a location that I can get to easily with public transportation. I do not have a car.

About Emil

I started to study the piano at the age of seven with Hrant Minassian in my hometown of Island Park, New York. During high school I continued my studies with Jack Chaikin , a graduate of the Juilliard School. I attended Hofstra University where I received a B.A. in Music in 1979. At Hofstra, my pian

Chuck
I took up the piano as an adult, without having had any experience in it as a child (though I played guitar through college). I tried a few instructors prior to discovering Emil, with whom I have been studying now for over 2 years.

Emil is a wonderful teacher. He is far and away the most accomplished piano player I have studied with, and his knowledge of, and facility for, playing really comes through in his instruction. He is always bringing formal instruction back to the act of performance, and how to make whatever piece you are working on, even the simplest, sound the best that it can be.

Emil isn't afraid to share his own struggles with whatever piece he is currently working on, and pointing out that he faces the same challenges that every practicing player faces.

Emil is personable, knowledgeable, and kind. I can't recommend him highly enough as an instructor.
Travis
A wonderfully skilled teacher with decades of experience, Emil will certainly help take your playing to the next level.
Celia
Emil is very easy to work with and is a fun and inspired teacher. My daughter loves taking lessons from him.

"Having studied with Brian Lam for over 3 years now, I have learned much more about music theory and piano performance than previous teachers. Brian is very hospitable towards his students and not only wants them to succeed in music but in their academic careers as well. He is also very lenient and rarely irritates over any inconveniences with those he teaches. Even with his leniency, he is able to have students pass ABRSM examinations with the highest marks and perform piano recitals in well known locations.

6 New Ideas for Piano Warm-Ups

We all know the importance of warming up - but do you actually commit to a proper warm-up every time you sit down to play the piano?  If you're in a rush, it's easy to forget it.  However, an effective warm-up is essential for avoiding injuries, such as tendonitis, and can also help increase the dexterity of your fingers and hands, allowing you to reach certain tough chords.
