We Fit Music Into Your Life

NYC Violin Lessons

Welcome to City Strings & Piano! I'm Dominic, and I lead our amazing team of teachers in New York City. They are all active musicians in New York and have degrees from the city's renowned music institutions. Teaching is an important part of their work, and they love sharing their talents with students of all ages.

Lessons in your home are ideal for the busy New York family, and we love making lessons convenient for you so that you can fit music into your life! Our friendly and fun teachers use Suzuki and traditional methods for lessons with beginners, kids or adults. Our teachers can come to you throughout Manhattan and to many parts of Brooklyn and Queens. Send us a message and we'll connect you with a great teacher who works for your schedule.

We also offer the option of bringing all the materials you need right to your home, including violin rentals. We will discuss your needs when you contact us and you can decide what is right for you.

Our New York City studio hosts semi-annual recitals with professional piano accompaniment in a convenient Midtown location. Recitals are a great time for students to share their progress with friends, family and each other!

When you sign up for lessons with City Strings & Piano, we find a time that consistently works for you and your teacher. Having a dependable lesson time greatly increases your child's success in their music lessons. We suggest the same for practice time. Our fastest progressing students tend to practice for smaller amounts of time, but nearly every day, and often at about the same time each day.

We pride ourselves on offering the personal touch that all the best music lessons have. You can contact your teacher directly at any time, and we encourage you to do so, especially if there is a questions about practice! Dominic is also always available to discuss your progress and loves to hear about how all our students are doing.

Our teacher is patient, gentle and very encouraging! A nice bonus is that we are able to rent a violin from them, instead of having to invest in one that she may outgrow in the future
