Welcome to the Frances Kramer Piano Studio Website!
I am full-time piano instructor since 1999. I give piano lessons in my studio in the East 80's of Manhattan
or in your home. I welcome and have experience teaching students of all ages, levels, musical styles, and
interests. Excellent NYSSMA preparation and student recitals are available. I provide a strong musical
foundation and work with students to isolate and achieve their goals with the student's ongoing enjoyment
of making music a top priority. Guitar and vocal lessons are also available.
I believe true progress in music can be made only by working steadily at a program tailored to the
student. The program grows and evolves as the student progresses and as I ask for and give
proper attention to
I believe learning is best achieved in a relaxed, supportive
environment with good communication
between student and
teacher. The student is encouraged to pursue
individual interests that follow his/her natural
abilities while a strong musical
foundation is introduced
and mastered at the student's own pace. The goal is musical
skills and enjoyment that last a lifetime.
