I was reminded yesterday during a trip into NYC of the many concerts and rehearsals my daughter has participated in after just 3 years with the studio. I'm so grateful for her outstanding teachers Natalia and Laura. But more than just providing excellent instruction, Natalia Huang Piano Studio has made my 6 six year old part of a community of musicians, artists, and performers. She is part of something larger than herself. There is so much more to appreciate about the experience than just her weekly lesson. Natalia makes it all part of a bigger picture that immerses students in a world of music, beauty, and culture. The experiences and memories are priceless.

My 7yo daughter and 5yo son have been taking piano lessons at Natalia Huang Piano studio for the past 6 months and love it! Mr. Patrizio is very nice and encouraging while also teaching theory and technique. He provides fun challenging homework which motivates kids to practice at home. Kids were given the opportunity to perform at a mini performance giving them confidence to play the piano in front of others and getting them excited to learn more. I highly recommend Natalia Huang Piano studio!

My children take piano lessons with Mr. Takeshi at the Natalia Huang Studio in Greenwich. Mr. Takeshi is a fabulous instructor, and my eight year old son and five year old daughter are engaged and excited about learning music. Natalia runs an impressive operation. We are so thrilled to be a part of the program, and I would recommend this studio to any interested students.

Their teacher Ms. Hitomi is very sweet and patient. The younger one was initially not up for the full thirty minutes session and she has now worked her way up to the full length. Also, both girls now see piano practice as a solution to their boredom, as opposed to asking to turn on the television. I would recommend this studio highly.

I've taken piano lessons at other studios and none compare to the Natalia Huang Studio. I'm an adult who played piano for 17 years before quitting for 15 years. I wanted to regain my technique and confidence and they've helped me do just that.
Ms.Hitomi is a fantastic teacher! She great at reminding me to enjoy the music while still challenging me to take my practice to the next level. I HIGHLY recommend this studio and especially Ms. Hitomi!!

Mr. Chris has a lot of patience and always comes up with ideas to make her focus better. The studio is well set up with clear policies, and there are many opportunities for informal and formal recitals, which really help motivate young students. My daughter has progressed a lot over the few months she has taken the lessons. Recently, Ms. Natalia organized an orchestra recital, in which young students played their pieces with an ensemble of musicians with string instruments. Ms. Natalia really spent a lot of efforts putting this recital together, and it turned out to be very impressive. This was really an amazing and eye-opening experience for my daughter, and I don’t think my daughter would have this kind of opportunity anywhere else.

My 7yo son has been taking lessons at the Natalia Huang studio for the past year with Marie. He has made so much progress this year.
Marie is very nice, positive and encouraging. Earlier this school year there was a special performance, where all the children could play with an accompanying orchestra which was an amazing experience. They have fun homework challenges, which motivate the children to practice. Natalia is very organized, sends out emails about important reminders/events and really cares about the students.
We would highly recommend the piano studio.

Her classes are not mere drilling sessions--they are part of a journey towards understanding and being the music itself. Thanks Natalia for helping me grow both as a player and listener of music!

My son, Tyrique, took lessons with Natalia in 2010/2011 when he was 7 years old. Tyrique was a very shy boy with slight ADHD. Natalia was very patient with him and made the lessons fun and enjoyable. He picked up the notes and theory pretty quickly and was always proud of his efforts when he was showered with positive praises and comment from Natalia. He had his first piano recital and that really helped boost up his confidence. Unfortunately, we had to relocate overseas and Tyrique had to stop his lesson with her. He's 10 now and we're back in NYC and thinking of enrolling him back in piano classes. After looking online for months for a piano teacher/tutor who is located closer to our neighborhood, we concluded that there's none out there who can match the professionalism and teaching instructions and conduct of Natalia and her group of piano teachers working with her. I may have to travel a bit to her studio in Manhattan, but it will be worth it. She's highly recommended to all parents who want their children to have a positive and long-lasting experience with learning to play the piano and developing it into a life-long passion.

Her teacher, Mr. Chris, could not be nicer or more patient, and she is excited to go to each and every lesson. The lovely Natalia had told us that she searched for a very long time to find a curriculum that would engage Preschoolers and really provide a great foundation for learning to play piano. This one is amazing. Not only is my daughter enjoying learning how to play a beautiful instrument, but the elements of teaching incorporate math and patterning...in THE MOST FUN way! We could not be more excited!

The lessons are affordable and the teaching is wonderful -- both in terms of pushing our son to be his best while doing so in a way that doesn't discourage him. He has had many opportunities to perform publicly -- 2 workshops and a final performance which went very well. Our son loves playing and often will start practicing on his own without prompting. Natalia is also very responsive to questions and scheduling and provides many opportunities to expand his love of music and piano playing.

Our family couldn't be happier about Natalia and her studio. My 6 year old son has been taking piano lessons there for over a year. My son has learned so much in such a short time and takes his lessons and practice times very seriously. His teacher, Jennifer is a wonderful musician, a great mentor, and a kind and patient person. My son looks forward to his weekly lesson and is motivated to practice at home because of the piano workshops, recitals, and recordings! We are so pleased with my son's progress with the piano and have very high regard for all of the teachers at the studio. We enthusiastically recommend Natalia's studio for children of all ages.

My 6-year-old son (now 7) started taking piano lessons with Natalia's studio in 2012 and absolutely loves it! Natalia and her teachers have developed a multi-dimensional approach to learning piano. Children learn the theory, the techniques while also having fun with their lessons. They have opportunities to play in real recording studios (and get CDs made of their music!), have duets with other children, and get to play their pieces in front an audience to boost their confidence. My son has learned very quickly and is held to high standards; he is pushed to learn, yet in a way that is encouraging and he is motivated to learn. I highly recommend Natalia's and her teachers! She has really fostered a love of music in my son!

Time goes fast... almost a year since my daughter took her first piano lesson with Natalia. MoreTime goes fast... almost a year since my daughter took her first piano lesson with Natalia.
My daughter loves to meet with Natalia once a week (she could stay for ever!). After just few months, my daughter performed in a recital and participated in few workshops. Last week, we visited the Faust Harrison Piano Factory in White Plains to discover what's inside a piano. What a journey!
So, I must say not only Natalia loves Music, but that's what she is! Try it...you will love it.
***Natalia is a fantastic piano teacher. She has taught both my sons for over 6 years (now 15 & 12). Though my oldest stopped lessons earlier this year, he still talks about going back to her if he has more time in his schedule. My youngest still plays, and just loves her! She is patient, kind, and caring, yet she is able to instill discipline and has a knack for motivating them (especially when they were younger). Natalia loves to teach, and it shows. We've been commuting down to her studio in Manhattan from northern Westchester every weekend for years because we were just not willing to give her up after we moved out of the city. She is definitely worth it. Now, she she teaches in Connecticut, as well as Manhattan, and we are thrilled. She organizes workshops and recitals for her students throughout the year, both for kids and adults. Last year she organized a duet recital, where she paired up her students; it was SO enjoyable to watch. My kids had a lot of fun preparing for it (though they wouldn't admit it!) and they learned a lot from it (not just as pianist, but as brothers working together.) This is the kind of thing that Natalia thinks about and organizes for her students. Her dedication to her students and love of teaching really show through. Importantly, she was able to motivate my kids to practice and play. That's hard to find in a music teacher. We love her!
