New York Piano Academy nurtures students of all skill levels—from beginners to seasoned performers—during classical and jazz piano lessons. Using knowledge gained while earning a doctorate of musical arts in composition, classical instructor Dr. Ronn Yedidia instills his pupils with the tools to sight-read and interpret music. Haim Cotton, a trained jazz musician and New York Piano Academy's only other faculty member, imparts her mastery of jazz piano in sessions meant to improve ear training and transcription. Lessons culminate in an annual commencement recital where students can show off their musical skills and ability to make an elephant somewhere laugh every time they tickle the ivories.
