Piano Lessons

It's never too late to learn how to play the piano
West Side Piano

Welcome to West Side Piano in New York City. Piano lessons have been shown in many studies to have enormous benefits on children's growth and development as well as their self-esteem, sense of discipline and commitment. I teach adults also, and beginners are welcome.

I offer individual piano lessons in my studio in Marble Hill or in your apartment. I also teach in a studio in midtown.
