WELCOME TO THE BAKER PIANO STUDIO
Private piano lessons in New York City on Manhattan's Upper West Side, offered by Jonathan Baker, piano teacher to children and adults, beginners to advanced, in a welcoming and structured learning environment.
The joy of making music is everyone's birthright, and it is never too late to realize your musical potential. Learning to play the piano opens worlds of artistic expression, cultivating personal growth.
Making music is one of the few skills that awakens our complete humanity - it is emotional, intellectual, artistic, and athletic - all at once.
Supportive and encouraging, I guide students step-by-step toward mastery of the keyboard and musical expression. My method as a piano teacher is to streamline the learning process by removing obstacles and guiding students toward their goals at a natural and unforced pace.
Because every student is unique, each piano lesson is tailored to the student’s individual strengths, challenges, and interests. Musical preferences are incorporated into lessons because students are more likely to practice the music that truly inspires them.
With over thirty years professional experience as a performer and teacher I apply every relevant piano method to assist individual students to overcome challenges unique to themselves - something that cannot be realized through any internet piano course. For that important reason there is still no substitute for personal piano lessons.
I provide a solid foundation in keyboard technique and musicianship so that students are empowered to explore any kind of music. Igniting the imagination of students, and providing them with the tools to realize their highest potential is the basis of my teaching.
I now provide piano lessons via Skype and FaceTime to students around the world.
