Adult Piano Lessons

Adult Piano Lessons at Sage Music

Believe it or not 63.8% of our students are adults

Whether you want to be a professional musician or have had lifelong dreams of playing music, you’ll find yourself in good company at Sage Music.

Our students range from absolute beginners to intermediate players to advanced professionals looking to improve their skills and practice.

No matter what you want to learn, we’ll get you there.

I was somewhat worried about starting piano lessons at 36 years old, but thankfully I found Sage Music. I couldn’t imagine a better place to learn music than with Jason and his team. They take the time to make sure you understand the mechanics (mental and physical) in playing an instrument, and the pace of learning is set by the individual. Highly recommend Sage Music.– Christopher T., Thumbtack Reviews

Advanced Piano Lessons

Our students have included cast members of Saturday Night Live, Broadway performers, and producers coming to work on their keyboard skills. We’ve even helped students prepare for graduate degree auditions.

We go above and beyond other programs by developing more advanced skills, practice habits, and learning techniques. You’ll learn more music, in a shorter amount of time, and with greater skill and security.

Intermediate Piano Lessons

As an advancing pianist, we’ve got the skills to get your piano playing to the next level. We’ve worked with beginners and pros, so we know exactly how to get you from one level to the next.

Piano Lessons for Beginners

Don’t want to play kids songs? No worry! We’ll work with you to help you play the music that you want. We personalize our lessons for you.

Sometimes we can jump right in with what you want, but other times it takes a little prep work. But we’ll always get you there.

In fact, most of our piano students are adult beginners. So you’ll find a welcoming environment with a team that knows how to work with folks just like you.

Other Piano Programs

Most of our students come to us after they have tried lessons somewhere else. They tried video courses or lessons that weren’t personlized for them – YouTube,  TakeLessons or a piano lessons app. They took lessons with teachers who were not trained professionals.

And they just didn’t see the results they wanted.

They didn’t get better or ended up frustrated. They paid for videos but still had to teach themselves. They took lessons with someone who showed them what to do, but not how to do it.

And that left them unhappy. Feeling like they wasted time and money. So they looked for a better program.

The good news is that you’ve just found the #1 science backed program, guaranteed to get you results. That’s the Arpeggio® lessons system, designed right here at Sage Music®.

Piano Lessons for Kids

Piano lessons for kids

Develop your child’s skills in a fun and engaging way

Just like you, we want to see your kid have fun, enjoy music, and grow into a capable, successful adult. And we also know you want a program you can trust because you are busy with so many things.

That’s what we’ve designed our Arpeggio® lesson system to do. Systems such as Suzuki, ABRSM, the Royal Conservatory simply provide a sequence of songs to play. But our system is designed to develop your child’s skills, enabling them to play any music they want. That’s real growth, and real learning.

Guaranteed results

In addition, our system provides you with detailed notes every week so you can stay in touch with your child’s development. Plus your child will have the opportunity to perform every week in our student sharing hour, in our open mics, or in our regular recitals. This gives you results that you and your child can see.

Music Match & Sharing Hour

Plus, your child can meet other students at Sage Music and practice or play music in our Music Match and Sharing Hour programs. Peer learning is an effective way for your child to grow, plus stay engaged while learning piano from home.

Music Match provides for a more focused one-one-one experience, while the Sharing Hour is about social learning experiences.

Piano Lessons for Toddlers

There is a big difference between teaching a 6 year old and a toddler. And a big difference between teaching a 3 year old and a 4 year old.

That’s why we’ve got trained teachers, and teachers who specialize in early childhood music education.

Our piano teachers know how to keep you child engaged, focused, and learning. All in part of a program designed for their age and level of development. They will learn and grow at the piano, while having fun.

What you’ll get at Sage Music that no other music school offers

  • The Sage® Student – Our flagship course will teach you everything you need to know to learn and master any music. When you graduate, you’ll know more about learning music than teachers at other schools do.

  • Sage® trained teachers – There is no better teacher than the Sage Music teacher. Where other schools hire performers to teach music, we hire professional teachers. Then we put them through our rigorous music teacher training, so you’ll get the most qualified teachers around.
  • Music Match – Looking to meet new people to share your passion for music? Just lest us know and we’ll connect you with other students just like you so you can practice or make music together.

  • Community – We’ve got an incredible community of great people like you, in person and online. Join our online groups, concerts, recitals, open-mics and more.
  • Student Onboarding – Before starting your piano lessons, you’ll meet with a senior member of our team to determine your goals, set your preferences, discuss your learning style, and assess your skills and experience. Together we’ll build a plan for your piano studies in your student onboarding.

“Looking for a place to get lessons and get the added benefit of being part of a musical community? Then Sage is the best! …I’ve been blown away by the quality of my lessons, the pedagogy and the warm, friendly faculty! They have done everything to make this beginner feel like a musician and my playing has never been better! Highly recommended!”

Amazing experience taking piano lessons with Sage Music School. Jacob Silver (my teacher) has introduced to me many gems of knowledge to improve my playing. I stopped taking lessons about 20 years ago but still played piano, and I'm so glad that I decided to start actual lessons again with Sage Music. I highly recommend to piano players at all levels of experience! Sage is the needed tool to help me meet my current piano playing goals. :)

Sage Music is a very special place, and they have my highest recommendation to anyone thinking of beginning or advancing their music studies. I started taking piano lessons last year as a total adult beginner with no reference point or prior knowledge, and I'm amazed at how far I've come and how much joy the lessons have added to my life. My brilliant and patient instructor, Jacob, has always been interested in how I learn best as an individual, and the Sage approach overall combines proven learning techniques with a warm and highly personalized teaching approach. The entire team is wonderful to work with, professional, and responsive. I'm so glad I began lessons and look forward to continuing with Sage as I develop these skills.

Started taking piano lessons in 2019. SAGE is very professional organization and extremely responsive. They meet with you before you start the lessons to determine what your music goals are and to help develop a plan for success. I have been very happy working with my teacher Jacob Silver. Jacob has supported my goals by providing valuable insight, guidance and tools. After every session he provides music lesson notes and agreed upon practice routines. When I have a question I can send him an email and I always get a quick response. My playing skills are consistently improving. I highly recommend Sage Music.

I have taken piano lessons for approximately 3 months with Jacob. During this time, Jacob has taught me with great patience and kindness. He is very understanding of your needs, and I can assure you that he is extremely knowledgeable in piano music. Jacob makes you feel comfortable during your lessons and know that neither him or any other staff members will pass judgment on your abilities. I can only say positive things about the staff. Everyone has been super kind and they will always give you a warm welcome. I highly recommend this school for anyone who has the desire to learn to play an instrument. Thank you for all of your support!

We really can't say enough good things about Sage. Not only are they affordable, but they go the extra mile to accommodate our ever-changing and hectic schedule.I also want to give a special shout to Julian, our instructor. He is so patient and so kind with our 4-year-old. No matter how fidgety he gets, Julian is able to steer him back on track. And he has really tailored the lessons to our son's interests. He's an outstanding music teacher!We tried a few other piano schools before this one but felt immediately comfortable at Sage. Even if you're not in LIC, it's worth the train ride!

I have had a fantastic experience with Sage Music. The organization is efficient, professional, personable and convenient, with many thanks to Veronica. The recitals give the studio a great community vibe. My piano teacher Nicole is fantastic and has me feeling like a super piano virtuoso even as a beginner. Her lessons mix theory and practical skills and are always challenging, entertaining and keep me on track. The only music lessons I've ever stuck with. Five stars!

Having recently visited Sage Music, I was "inspired" to sit down at the piano for the first time in a very long time. With the advice to practice in "small bits", practice has proven to be a pleasure. I'm actually disappointed when my timer goes off. Disappointed that practice is over, now that's a wonderful surprise!

I started learning piano as an adult with Aleksandra Kocheva, doing once a week class during work lunch break. Sage Music is a no-fuss music school, which makes it very easy to fit in one hour in and out class in between work. Alex tailors the class according to my need and ability -- not using the more traditional curriculum. With very little time for practice outside class, I still find improvement every week, because class material and homework is tailored to the most important aspect to work on. Alex quickly notices where my weaknesses or problem areas are, and have innovative and intuitive way of correcting them. My favourite part is that we always analyses the music and how I'm playing, to break it down such that it's bite-size and approachable. I highly recommend adults who want to learn or improve to Alex!

Highly recommend Sage Music. My first time to the studio, Jason (Sage) explained to me the philosophy behind how they teach students to play an instrument, which includes practices that can be expanded to assist with virtually any task/goal in life. I knew immediately that this was going to be a journey about more than just the music. Jason was so open, honest and easy to talk to that my insecurities and anxiety over starting a process thought to be for children, while myself being 36, slipped away unnoticed.My lessons have been with Aleksandra, and just two lessons in I found myself leaps-and-bounds ahead of where I had expected I'd be. I had been concerned about the pace of the lessons being too fast, but that hasn't been the case. Aleksandra has been working perfectly within the confines of my abilities, and I find her patience with the process to be... special.The studio space is large and clean, and nestled in an easy to reach Long Island City building, which houses a collection of businesses catering to artistic pursuits. There's even a convenient coffee shop/bakery in the lobby.I was skeptical that music lessons were something I could actually pull off at this stage of my life (including concerns over a busy lifestyle), but I couldn't be happier with their flexibility and service. It's become a priority on par with exercising. Most importantly however, I feel I'm getting educated in music (more specifically the piano) by skilled TEACHERS, not only skilled musicians. And that is the distinction that makes this place special. I feel confident saying you'll have no regrets trying out Sage Music.

Types of Piano Lessons

While they are similar, the types of piano are all slightly different to play and are used for different music.  If you need help choosing the right kind of piano for your lessons, let us know. We’ll be happy to help.

Popular Piano Lessons

While many piano schools promote classical music, we focus on your goals. Popular music is great because it speaks to our time. Not some other time in some other place.

We are happy to work with you on the music that you want to learn.

If you want to play the music of today, you’ll learn a solid piano technique just like our classical students. But we’ll apply your piano skills to the music that you want to play.

Classical Piano Lessons

Many of our students are interested in learning the music of the past masters of the piano like Brahms, Chopin, Liszt, Beethoven and Mozart.

This music requires a high level of focus, precision, and skill. Our faculty, with master’s degrees in piano performance, have performed this music all over the world and gained the experience necessary to help you develop the skills you need to making meaningful and masterful performances of this great repertoire.

Many of our students learn this music for fun, while others are preparing for Master’s Degree, College, or competitions like NYSSMA. Whatever your goals, we are happy to help you flourish as a classical pianist.

Learning jazz piano requires skills that other types of piano don’t. These are improvising, ear training, and often playing many songs from memory.

Our piano teachers are trained in these skills to they can pass them on to you.
