Playing the piano enhances brain function by improving memory, attention, and spatial-temporal skills. Regular piano playing sharpens fine motor skills and hand-eye coordination, while also fostering creativity and self-expression. It’s a perfect outlet for stress relief and promotes feelings of accomplishment and self-esteem. It’s also something people of all ages can do, and it’s never too late or too early to start.
NY Piano School, conveniently located steps from Lincoln Center at 37 West 65th Street (between Columbus and Central Park West), offers both in-studio and in-home lessons to clients of all backgrounds ranging in age from 4 to over 80. Piano lessons at the Upper West Side studio are given on a grand piano.
The school’s instructors are all conservatory or university trained and have years of experience teaching both kids and adults. They are also all professional musicians. They also offer lessons in English, Russian and Spanish.
The school’s approach is to provide information and insight from a professional place, but to do so in a way that’s always welcoming.
In addition to working with people of all ages, NY Piano School’s instructors help their students play all types of music on the piano – from pop to classical to jazz and beyond.
“Our piano students are able to listen to pop songs and identify form and chord patterns, appreciate the symphony more deeply, explore and understand new musical genres, and engage in conversations about music.”
NY Piano School also teaches its students how to read music, how to identify key signatures and time signatures, and how to identify chord and form patterns.
