About Us

The Piano Lab has been offering piano and voice lessons to the Utica area since 1985 and is dedicated to offering quality music programs for all ages. Kindermusik is offered for ages newborn to 5 years old.  In 2019, we expanded our program to Lake Wylie, South Carolina where Kindermusik and private lessons in piano are offered by the owner and director, Jeanette Swiderski. Parents are strongly encouraged to introduce music into the home, without pressuring children to perform or develop in a particular way.  Music is, after all, a gift that allows us to lose ourselves in the moment.  We suggest that parents play different types of music at home or in the car to introduce children to various styles, such as classical, jazz, or folk.

Recitals are offered two times each year, as well as numerous performing opportunities through community events and nursing homes. We are actively preparing students for NYSMMA auditions and our advanced students may audition for the Jr. B Sharp Club and the Jr. B Sharp Competion.  Summer study is encouraged and lessons are offered weekly.

For the busy families that find it difficult to schedule their piano lessons, The Piano Lab offers virtual piano lessons.  All that is needed is a webcam and a computer.

Our central NY program has  two convenient locations including Clinton and Chadwicks, NY.

The staff consists of professional instructors and on occasion, student teachers.  All of our professional instructors gently guide children through classes that are geared towards discovery and individual development.

One of our most popular program for the younger child is Kindermusik,  music and movement classes for babies, toddlers, big kids, and families. Our classes nurture young children’s development—and not just their musical development. Our instructors are licensed by Kindermusik International.

Another  program for young children is Music For Little Mozarts, a piano class for ages 4 to 7.  Children learn to play piano on a musical adventure in a small class setting.   This is not offered every year, so please inquire as to if this program is running.

Here are some related services that our students use for music, instruments, and piano tuning.
