Piano Lessons

Do-Re-Mi School of Music & the Arts
93A South Livingston Avenue 
 Livingston, NJ

 Our school represents Russian piano teaching tradition that is famous for its high standards, solid technical skills and expressive, emotional interpretation.  What is even more important, it is each teacher's personal interest, involvement in each student's progress, close relationship between a student and a teacher. 

We are very proud that we can meet the needs of different types of students: from young children to teens to adults and senior citizens; from those playing piano "just for fun" to ambitious students who spend a lot of time and effort to polish their performing skills.

Our overall retention rate is extremely high: less than 10% drop-out comparing to national 80-90% drop-out among beginners. How do we achieve it? We offer different approaches to different types of students.

We serve students from Livingston, Millburn, Short Hills, Springfield, Summit, Chatham, Berkely Heights, New Providence, Basking Ridge, West Orange, South Orange, Caldwell, North Caldwell, East Hanover, Parsippany, Montville and Boonton areas.


According to a traditional approach, lessons cover repertory (pieces), reading, technique and theory. However, the balance between repertoire-reading-technique-theory and performing components varies from student to student. Repertory itself is different, as well: teachers try to assign the pieces of styles that student likes to play.
