NYC Piano Lessons

The piano is an all encompassing melodic, rhythmic and harmonic instrument. Not only is it chillingly beautiful as it glides through Beethoven’s “Moonlight Sonata”, but it also dances with driving stride bass lines popularized by Scott Joplin’s Ragtime hits. It is also the instrument of choice for some of our greatest songwriters like Paul Mccartney as he serenades “Hey Jude”, or Stevie Wonder and “Blowin’ in the Wind”, and of course Ray Charles as he weeps “Georgia”. The Piano is so entirely diverse that you will find it in the finest classical halls, the smokiest jazz clubs, the loudest rock venues as well as your grandma’s living room. And fortunately in our modern day and age there are plenty of compact electric keyboards for your New York apartment.

The piano has many other assets beyond performance. It is an excellent theory and compositional tool. For anyone interested in composing, songwriting, or understanding how music works and is put together, the piano is the best hands on tool. With the piano’s simple layout it’s very easy to see music theory in action. In no time you will be writing your own songs and compositions!

Frequently Asked Questions:

1. What is the best age to start playing Piano?

One of the greatest aspect of the piano is that you can get started taking lessons as early as 4 or 5 years of age.

2. Am I too old to start playing Piano?

You are never too old!

3. Do I need to own a piano.

If your apartment has no room for a piano, or you don’t want to pay the movers, you can purchase an electronic keyboard. It’s essential that you have a practice tool. If you have access to a piano, but don’t own it, that is fine as long as you can have sufficient access to practice.
