Intermediate piano lessons are offered to those students who have already been practicing the piano for several years and want to improve their skills. Our advanced piano lessons are for highly skilled pianists wishing to refine their technique or who plan to audition for music schools and competitions. GET TO KNOW YOUR INSTRUCTORSOur piano instructors are all classically trained with a minimum of a Bachelor’s Degree level of education and have graduated from highly reputable music schools and conservatories from all around the world including the Royal College of Music (RCM), London, Manhattan School of Music and New York University (NYU).
Pianist and singer-songwriter Kyndyl Miller holds a Master of Music from New York University’s Steinhardt School where she also worked as an Adjunct Instructor for private and group piano lessons. Japanese pianist Mayuko Yamashita holds a Master of Performance (MPerf) from the Royal College of Music, London where she was awarded the John and Jean Redcliffe Maud Prize. An active performer with a passion for chamber music, Emily Martin received her Bachelor of Music from NYU Steinhardt. Isidora Vladic holds her Bachelor’s in Piano Performance from New York University where she studied with Jose Ramon Mendez and Seymour Bernstein. German native Manuel Schmiedel holds a Bachelor’s degree from the renowned Jazz Institute Berlin and a Master’s degree in Music Performance (Jazz) from New York University.
A native of Australia, Simon with his background in Search Engine Optimization and Web Design initially created Piano Lessons NYC as a way to attract new students to his wife Mayuko’s piano studio. Piano Lessons NYC’s mission is to offer affordable private piano lessons in New York City and many areas of Brooklyn, Queens and Long Island for all ages and levels.
Our piano teachers use a mixture of British, Japanese & Russian teaching styles based on the individual needs of each student in order to better unlock their potential and achieve success in both piano theory and performance. Sight-reading by definition is the reading and performing of a piece of written music that the performer has not seen before.
Our exercises focus on honing students’ short-term musical memories to allow them to read ahead while playing a piece so that they play it correctly when they get to that section.
During our piano lessons, we assign each notes of a scale a particular syllable, and then ask the student to practice them by playing different note sequences using these syllables. Whilst music theory, sight-reading, and solfege are all used to train a musician’s ears to recognize intervals and chord qualities, learn how to perform melodies and rhythms accurately at sight, and practice writing down musical examples upon hearing them, Musicianship is about training the student not just to be a player of piano, but to be a true musician. Many pianists are great technically, but they lack that something special which usually separates the great from the average.
Whether you have an upcoming ABRSM or NYSSMA examination our team of experienced piano teachers are all familiar with the length of time it takes to prepare for each exam and the care needed to ensure that the most appropriate and appealing selection of pieces is presented. Prior to any upcoming examination we help our students choose suitable pieces for the exam and make sure they have selected the right combination from the correct syllabus. I moved to NYC in April 2014 and was interested in learning piano the traditional way (by sheet music, with a focus on technique). Kyndyl teaches all four of our children piano lessons weekly and has done so for more than a year.

She recently completed an Advanced Certificate in Music Education from NYU Steinhardt under the direction of Marilyn Nonken.
A student of Seymour Bernstein, she has performed at venues including Weill Hall, Steinway Hall, Tenri Cultural Institute, and as an Artist-in-Residence at Manchester Music Festival’s 40th Season. Born in New York City she began her musical studies at Third Street Music School where she studied with Marc Ponthus and then furthered her studies at Fiorello H.

We offer personalized one-on-one piano lessons either in the student’s home or at the National Opera Center conveniently located at 330 7th Ave.
By combining these three styles it provides a more diverse understanding of technique, musical expression, range of dynamics and interpretation. The first thing we teach is notation which covers the staff, clefs, note names, rhythms, rests, intervals, meter and time signatures, key signatures, and dynamics. It is also referred to as prima vista, which translates to “at first sight,” which is exactly what we teach our students to master: the ability to read and play a piece of music upon first sight. Often highly skilled musicians can sight-read silently, meaning they can look at printed music and hear it in their heads without playing or singing it. At Piano Lessons NYC we teach solfege using the Kodaly Method at every level of music education, from beginner through to advance. The sequences get gradually more difficult in terms of intervals and rhythms used as the student progresses.
Good musicianship involves not only understanding how to use the piano but how to convey your story or message to the audience using emotion, passion and flair, allowing you to interpret a piece of music in an original and inventive way while still remaining true to the written score. Preparing for an ABRSM or NYSSMA exam takes careful planning and an awareness of the importance of including all aspects of the exam in the piano lessons on a regular basis. We also incorporate at least a few minutes’ aural training and sight-reading into every piano lesson as well as giving them a mock exam well before the actual event. I have always wanted to learn piano, but since I never played any instruments, always felt it was too late for me. Anita Collins, music education, TED-EdDid you know that every time musicians pick up their instruments, there are fireworks going off all over their brains?Dr.

They have fun and because of that, they are kept passionate and engaged at all times, therefore soak the information in an instant. I teach both 1-2-1 lessons as well as small groups for younger students, get in touch to find out more! That is, the more you apply the techniques you know, the more new techniques will gradually become apparent. I recall taking a music theory course in college after playing in a small group for a few years, and it was so easy I challenged the course after a couple weeks, and easily passed it. Many of my students have no intention of ever playing in public, but want to play for their own relaxation after work, or just for fun with the family.
With our complete piano courses, you never have to guess what comes next and you can be confident you are setting up a great musical foundation for years to come. At Piano Lessons NYC our piano instructors all have the same goal in mind and that is to provide the highest quality education in a fun, energetic and welcoming environment. She has performed in various venues in the United States, Italy, Czech Republic, Spain, and Germany. With over ten years teaching experience Mayuko’s students have gone on to win several piano competitions and receive great results in both the ABRSM and NYSSMA exams.
At NYU, she was the curator of Music with a “Vue,” a concert series dedicated to bringing classical music to Bellevue Hospital. He is an outstandingly creative pianist and regularly performs in various venues around New York City. Our piano instructors also offer lessons at their private residence located in Midtown East and Brooklyn. As Piano Lessons NYC expands we intend to hold annual piano recitals where our students can showcase their achievements and get accustomed to performing in front of an audience. Learning music theory is one of the most important things a musician can do as it helps them to not only become better performers, but also have a better understanding of the music they are playing and hearing. Students will also be taught about scales and chords (harmony), melodies, phrases, and musical forms. Just like learning to read words, learning how to sight-read music takes a lot of practice and discipline until it eventually becomes second nature. All musicians are required to have good sight-reading skills as this makes learning new pieces much easier and quicker. The study of solfege enables the student to audiate, or mentally hear, the pitches of a piece of music which he or she is seeing for the first time and then to play or sing them aloud.
The seven syllables we use for this practice are: do (or doh in tonic sol-fa), re, mi, fa, sol (so in tonic sol-fa), la, and ti, which makes learning and practicing solfege extremely intuitive for players of all levels.


During each piano lesson students are encouraged to feel the music they are playing and to improvise rather than to simply follow what the teacher is reciting, helping them to develop their confidence and own unique identity as a musician.
Our students are also encouraged to perform the pieces to their family, relatives, and friends and to work through several sample papers before the exam so that they get used to the sort of questions that will be asked while staying within the time limit.
It has been very motivating to her to play real pieces right from the start, and not having to repeat endless finger exercises.
After a month of taking her lessons, there is marked improvement in my playing both technically and musically. She is not only talented and knowledgeable about music, but also passionate about the art form.
It’s been a mixture of relearning the basics and playing pieces that are challenging.
Instead of simply listening to the music, why not be the ONE who actually plays it on the piano? We’ll definitely do our best to cater to your needs and if you have a piano at home, our instructors will be more than happy to conduct the lessons at the comfort of your home. In 2011, she studied abroad in Florence, Italy and Prague, Czech Republic where she performed in several master classes. She has appeared in numerous contemporary related projects including the BBC Proms where her performance was broadcast on BBC Radio 3. A private teacher in Manhattan for over five years, Emily has taught students of all ages and skill levels. She has participated and performed at the Gijon International Piano Festival in Spain, International Keyboard Institute and Festival, and the Institute and Festival for Contemporary Performance at Mannes and has played in several masterclasses for artists such as Robert McDonald, Nelita True, Alexander Kobrin, James Giles, and Sara Davis Buechner.
He has toured and taught masterclasses in many countries, including his homeland Germany, Austria, Switzerland, England, Ireland, Czech Republic, Lebanon, Ecuador, Costa Rica and the United States.
Piano Lessons NYC helps guide and foster students in a range of different musical styles including: classical, pop, jazz and musical theatre. It also makes musical activities such as performing, composing, improvising, arranging, teaching music, or getting a music degree much easier once one gains a basic understanding of music theory. Whether you are an absolute beginner or already know a lot about music theory our piano lessons are individually tailored to cover everything from the most basic scales to the most advanced notation.
In each of our piano lessons, students are given a range of different tasks and activities to help them increase their sight-reading ability.
As a result students are more likely to try learning new pieces of music by themselves, making them stronger and more well-rounded performers.
Solfege study not only improves recognition of musical intervals but also strengthens a student’s understanding of music theory. Finally, we help students to develop their confidence in themselves and their abilities through practicing walking into a room and setting up to perform, as these are often the most nerve-wrecking moments before the actual exam. Being a novice of sorts, I needed a bit of guidance but she encouraged and pushed me at the same time. She has been excellent about keeping them interested and excited about music and performance. Mayuko has been very helpful at picking out just the right pieces and also helping me through each piece. Anita Collins who earned her PhD from the University of Melbourne in the area of Neuroscience and Music Education. Playing piano is a learnable skill, with proper guidance from professional piano teachers, everyone can play the score no matter what age you are.

Each of us has different needs and different goals, so what we do with our piano playing is entirely up to us.
Kyndyl is one of our most popular instructors due to her friendly demeanor and motivating lessons. She has performed extensively not only in her native country of Japan, but also in the USA, UK, Spain, Finland and Australia. Recently, she taught at Manchester Music Festival’s Music Discovery Week and in Burgos, Spain, preparing students for solo and chamber concerts.

If you would like more information or to schedule your discounted trial lesson please contact us. They not only become adept at playing the notes accurately, but also learn to read and anticipate the changing dynamics in speed and volume as written. At the end of each session, I felt I was making progress and motivated to prepare for the next lesson.
She offers flexible lesson plans, which are excellent for students in different levels and goals. She’s incredibly patient and great at pointing out little things that can make all the difference. Mayuko is the founder of several music schools and currently teaches piano to over 40 students privately along with being an accompanist at Joffrey Ballet School.
She started to take voice lessons when she was 14 and has performed in numerous notable operatic roles as a soprano. Emily offers an exciting approach, combining classical music tradition and music theory with modern, fun, and creative techniques. As a teacher she has experience working with students of various ages and seeks to make lessons engaging while instilling a solid foundation in musicianship and technique.
His deep insight into the jazz idiom and improvisation is a quality that is especially sought after among students that are interested in this particular subject area.
It is important to note that every student can be different and a good tutor is one who has the temperament to deal with this varied audience.
I really feel that Mayuko is understanding of what I am looking for, and perfectly adapting her teaching accordingly. Recently, Mayuko was one of only 40 people selected to participate in the 2016 Orleans Concours International Piano Competition in France.
All potential students receive a discounted trial lesson to evaluate their current musical level, and to discuss goals and future piano aspirations. Sadly, I had to move out of NYC in February 2015 but I will cherish those piano classes with Mayuko. Hakamatsuka has been teaching piano and voice privately since 2008 to a wide range of students starting from 5 years old to adults across all levels and abilities.
