Students in High School who want to pursue playing with the school Jazz Ensemble, or participate in after school jazz programs and groups will excel in our program. We also prepare students for NYSSMA exams and festivals.

We take all levels of students for Jazz Piano, from beginners to advanced, however we do not recommend Jazz Piano for young beginners under the age of 13.

Some of the materials we use in lessons include:

  • Dobbins, Jazz Piano Harmony
  • Progris, A Modern Method for Keyboard (Berklee)
  • Snidero, Jazz Conception
  • Peterson, Jazz Exercises, Minuets, Etuddes & Pieces for Piano
  • Cornick, Piano Jazz
  • Aebersold - all books

Our Teachers

We take great care and effort to match every student and family to the right teacher through interviews, consultations and trial lessons. All instructors are experienced, qualified pianists who will make sure that your child has fun, and most importantly learns the right way, avoiding bad habits that inevitably become road blocks to progress and enjoyment.
