Piano Lessons in NYC

Riverside Music Studios has specialized in private piano lessons in NYC since 2002, when founder/director Dr. Dmitry Aleexev opened the first studio on the Upper West Side.

Our piano lessons in NYC focus on classical, jazz, popular, or traditional piano pieces or any combination of music styles you like.

Our students range from 4  years old to 80 plus, and our experienced piano teachers are happy to work with absolute beginners, intermediate, or advanced musicians.

What Do You Learn in Piano Lessons?

We will be happy to teach you how to read the music at sight, improvise, and even compose your own music if you are interested.

In your NYC piano lessons, we will work on comfortable technique and as much music theory and history as you like. Most importantly, our very patient and encouraging piano instructors will keep you motivated and will help you learn to play the pieces that you love!

Our Special Programs for Piano Lessons in NYC

We offer classical, jazz pop/rock, and Broadway piano lessons for children of all school ages in our NYC studio and in homes of students in Manhattan. 

We also offer a special program for young piano students aged 4-7: Piano Games Lessons  are designed to inspire your child and keep them interested in piano lessons. These imaginative piano classes for children incorporate music and movement in a relaxed atmosphere.

Piano Lessons for Adults  are also a very popular program at our NYC piano studio. Learn music you love to play while learning excellent technique. You are never too old to learn how to play piano!

"Our daughter is 4 – she started the piano games classes when she was 3 and absolutely loves it! I can’t believe how much she has learned in only a few months. She is now playing really cute songs with both hands, and enjoys practicing her scales all the way up the keyboard. She even learned how to play “happy birthday” for her brother when he turned one The teacher is always happy, energetic and excited to teach our little one a new challenge for the week. I like the way she keeps the classes really fun and helps me learn ways to make practicing at home fun too. I wanted our daughter to love playing the piano, if she was going to continue lessons, and she does! She is encouraged by the quick progress she makes each week and it is really wonderful to see. I can’t ask for any more and would highly recommend Riverside Music Studios. Thank you!"
