Piano Lessons: Areas of Study

Note Reading

Private Piano Lessons in NYC Home

In order to play all the music you love, it’s essential that you learn how to read notation on the treble and bass staff.

Learning to read notation will open up an entire world of music. Once you get the hang of reading you will be able to play anything you desire from Mozart to Billy Joel.

No matter if you’re located in Brooklyn or Manhattan, our NYC piano teachers will guide you through the process of learning to read music until you become confident.


Playing the piano requires the proper use and development of your fingers, hands, wrists, and arms.

Your instructor will show you the correct way to approach playing the piano so you can play for years to come without injuring yourself.

Playing with proper technique will also add to your overall performance and speed at which you can play.


Music Theory

Understanding the basics of music theory is an important area of study when learning how to become a great pianist, professional singer, and songwriter.
