Instruments & Duration
Music Lessons are available for private 30 minute, 45 minute, and 60 minute lessons to children starting from 3.5 years old for piano lessons, and from 5 years old for guitar, violin, flute, and voice.
Additionally, nearly half of our student body are adult students (many of whom started from zero previous musical experience), so we are happy to work with beginner to professional level adult students.
All of our studios feature acoustic grand pianos. We also have violins, guitars (acoustic and electric), and flutes that can be used during your music lessons.
Music lessons for children and adults are based on a traditional method which means that our students learn to read the music and play with a proper technique, but we always present a choice of multiple musical styles to work on and master: classical, jazz, traditional, pop/rock, and Broadway!
Our Music Teachers
Every instructor at Riverside Music Studios is very encouraging, friendly, and patient. All of our music teachers have a minimum of a Master’s degree from the world’s major music conservatories, and many years of working with children and adults of all levels. Come see for yourself, and we are sure that you will love the lessons! Learn more about our music teachers in NYC.
Performance Opportunities at Our Music School in NYC
We encourage all students to perform at our public student recitals, which are held in February and June in some of the best concert halls in Manhattan. Everyone who takes music lessons with us has a chance to perform in front of family and friends.
We are located right by the 1, A, B, C, and D subway stop, so it’s a quick commute to your music lesson from anywhere on the Upper West Side, Upper East Side, and Midtown. We also have many students coming from other neighborhoods to take their music lessons in Manhattan as well as other boroughs of New York City.
