About Lynne N.

I am a professional pianist and started taking lessons at age 4. I'm a graduate of ORU in Tulsa, OK and SUNY in Stonybrook where I received my B.S. and M.A. degrees. I'm a retired NYS Certified Elementary Teacher and taught Elementary Music K - 3 Kindergarten, and Fifth grade in both public and private schools. I was a homeschool mom of my 5 children who are now grown-up with successful careers and families of their own. I've also published 4 children's books. My passion is to inspire and help children to discover their musical gifts, talents, and purpose so they can eventually step into their destiny.

I've taught piano lessons for 25+ years and my students have always enjoyed learning as I've customized my lessons to meet each one's needs. Many of my past students are now in musical careers. My classical students are evaluated at NYSSMA each year and get excellent evaluations. I also teach popular and church worship music. I specialize in the development of sight reading, ear training, rhythm, scales, chords, theory, dynamics, and technique. My lessons are fun and inspire creativity while developing confidence and self-esteem. I enjoy encouraging my students to take my challenge to just be themselves, and know they are already accepted and approved of. Music has also proven to be a great source of support for students with learning challenges and special needs.

Parents of children are welcome and expected to stay with students for the duration of lesson time. I will see you in my private studio. I look forward to meeting you and getting started with our musical journey together!

Lynne is such a great teacher and is so wonderful with my 7 year old daughter. She’s extremely patient and makes the lessons fun and interesting. My daughter always looks forward to piano lessons and I love seeing how she’s progressing with her sight reading and scales.

I took classical piano lessons with Lynne Nofi for several years. She started me from the very beginning and taught me from scratch. Lynne Nofi was an absolutely wonderful teacher. She was so cheerful and happy all the time, so encouraging, and so dedicated to helping me feel motivated to succeed. I always felt that she loved teaching, and she made learning a wonderful experience. She has many years of teaching experience and knowledge. If you are looking for classical piano lessons, I highly recommend Lynne as a teacher who is both competent and experienced and who will make learning piano a true pleasure!

Lynne Nofi taught me piano for several years when I was in middle and high school, and I’m very grateful for what an excellent job she did in instructing me in piano. I was able to complete all 6 levels of NYSSMA, and after graduating high school I began teaching lessons myself using the knowledge of theory and technique I gained through lessons with Lynne. She is not only a great teacher but also a wonderful, kind, caring person. I always looked forward to our lessons together and her positive, caring instruction. I recommend her 100/100!
