Piano Lessons in NYC - Professional Jazz Pianist and Tutor with 10 years stage and teaching experience

Methodology

Every student is very different and has individual strengths and needs. I believe a student needs strong guidance and clarity, but I like to include my student's taste into my the decision making process. Learning how to play piano is a lot of work. Ultimately, I like the learning process to be as rewarding as the results.

Background

My name is Manuel. I am a professional Pianist and Teacher.

Are you interested in piano lessons? I have over 8 years of teaching experience with students of all ages and levels and I am looking for additional students.

As a teacher, I have worked with many students of all levels, including total beginners and renowned artists such as Andre 3000 and Cameron Avery. I have taught at New York University and the University Of The Arts in Berlin, Germany and I regularly give masterclasses and workshops at music colleges and universities abroad.

As a Pianist, I have organized concert tours in Europe and the U.S. and I have lead groups at renowned jazz clubs such as the Blue Note NYC and others. Please feel free to check out manuelschmiedel.com for more of my artistic activities.

Are you interested? Just write me a message!

Looking forward to hearing from you,
Manuel
