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.

Students in our studio range from age 4 years old to over 80. We work with absolute beginners, intermediate, and advanced musicians.

Our piano instructors bring a wealth of performance and teaching experience to the educational experience.

We are proud to have some of the best piano teachers in NYC on our faculty.

Our Piano Lessons in NYC Include the following special programs:

Inspire your child and keep them interested in music with our imaginative piano classes for children! Our Piano Lessons for Kids are specially designed for the needs of young students ages 4-7 by incorporating music and movement in a relaxed atmosphere.

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

What Do You Learn?

Unlike asynchronous and pre-recorded piano tutorials, Riverside Music Studio offers a personalized learning experience. Each lesson is adapted to the students’ needs. Our piano lessons in NYC focus on classical, jazz, popular, or traditional piano pieces or any combination of music styles you like.

Topics covered include:

  • Sightreading
  • Improvisation
  • Technique
  • Composition
  • Music History
  • Music Theory
  • and more!

Who are the piano teachers?

We are very selective and maintain a high standard in choosing instructors to work with our students. All of our piano teachers are based in NYC and have a minimum of a Master’s degree. Some instructors have their doctorate.

 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 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!"Allison ★★★★★ 5 months ago
