Learning the Piano in NYC

Let's hear it for New York, concrete jungle where dreams are made of, there's nothing you can't do...'

As the famous song goes, by the born and bred New Yorker Alicia Keys, her distinctive voice and proficiency on the piano have turned her into a global superstar.

And as a city, it is characteristically associated with rising stars who often use their surroundings to influence the songwriting process.

Learning any instrument requires hard work, determination, and perseverance.

And the history of New York is filled with inspiring examples to get you started.

From the unmistakable sound of the late Ella Fitzgerald, to one of the most successful and revered albums of all time: Tapestry by Carole King.

King is known for one of the most sampled musicians to date, and has seen artists such as The Beatles, The Monkees, and Rod Stewart cover her music: Aretha Franklin sang to King in-front of a packed out audience at the Kennedy Center Honors in-front of the Obama's who struggled to hold back their tears.

With such a breadth of history in music, the rest of the world has almost become expectant of new talent to emerge.

New artists are often comparing themselves to the old, and the talent is often fighting for center stage, wishing to become the next big thing fresh out of NYC.

With such a musical influence, there are countless opportunities for aspiring artists to develop and enhance their musical skills.

From specialist college and university programs to a plethora of singing and performance groups that offer opportunities for bright new talent: the options are truly endless.

Now let's have a look at some of these opportunities in more detail.

Music Schools in New York City

Home to several well-regarded music establishments, for those looking to progress into a more structured learning experience, there are a vastness of opportunities at their disposal.

From the Juilliard School, NYU, Columbia University, and the Manhattan School of Music, each of these higher educational establishments offer a range of music programs for aspiring students.

Mannes School of Music is relatively new compared to those aforementioned and they also offer piano programs for both undergraduates and postgraduates.

New York is also home to its very own piano academy. Established in 2005 by Dr. Ronn Yedidia, the school offers one-to-one and group-based sessions in the heart of the city, and students can specialize in either classical and jazz piano as well as intensive, long term programs.

The New York Conservatory of Music also offers programs for children, teens, and adults. Based on the Upper Eastside of Manhattan, the Conservatory's mission is to help engage their students with both music and culture. Developing tastes in classical, jazz, broadway (musical-based), and much more.

The examples discussed are only a mere example of the countless establishments that offer various, piano-based programs for aspiring students.

Opting for a One-To-One Piano Tutor

A more common option for developing musical proficiency is by taking part in one-to-one sessions with a trained piano teacher.

With over 70 tutors you can gain access to on the Superprof website, pianists with a range of musical and teaching experience have an extensive profile which can be viewed online.Β 

A quick look through each of the tutor's profiles helps you to understand what style of piano playing they specialize in, and their profiles have been rated through a five-star reviewing system from their previous students.

Each tutor offers a standard rate (usually per hour) and many of them offer their first lesson for free to help the student and tutor identify if it is the correct fit.

This can often be a more economically effective method to developing your skills as a pianist, as we all know without a scholarship, studying in the United States can prove incredibly costly and therefore isn't manageable for everyone.

What makes one-to-one pianist tutoring so effective is that you can learn from people with a different level of expertise.

Students for example that are majoring in piano at NYU can be found on the Superprof website.

They are offering to venture out to people's homes to tutor the piano, and although they haven't yet graduated, some of these musicians will be performing at an incredibly high level.

Therefore, if you are a newbie, it would be ideal to employ a student musician to begin in helping you to master the very early steps to piano playing.

Student tutors will also come at a cheaper price.

It isn't necessary to hire a tutor who plays the lead in a touring orchestra. Why, you may I ask?

Well, if you are learning the very fundamentals, you don't necessarily require the most seasoned and accredited pianists to help you grasp the basics.Β 

It will therefore make their hourly rate significantly cheaper, making it more financially manageable for the average student.

The Benefits of a Piano Tutor

Regular tutoring sessions are beneficial for the student for a multiple of reasons.

Firstly, it enhances motor skill dexterity.

This is in relation to a performers finger management when playing. Hand-eye coordination is integral in developing your skill level, and the more you practice and are guided, the better you will become.

Secondly, there are long term cognitive benefits associated with long term piano lessons.

Especially in childhood, studying music has been accounted for positive, lasting effects on brain function. Adults that have studied music to some capacity have been known to maintain a greater cognitive ability compared to those who haven't.

It is also known to increase concentration levels.

Having someone by your side to guide your learning prevents a student from getting distracted.

Structured and regular learning opportunities promote a greater level of consistency within one's studies, and an effective tutor will often set both short term and long term goals associated with your development.

Why is this necessary?

In doing so, this will enhance motivation upon the students, and having a clear objective/goal to work towards is integral in consistent growth and development.
