Welcome to Forte>Piano Studio!

We offer high-quality piano instruction in Ditmas Park, Brooklyn and surrounding areas.

We are conservatory-trained pianists committed to teaching piano in the most fun and effective ways.  

The goals of Forte>Piano Studio are for each student to develop solid piano, music theory, and ear-training skills, and most importantly acquire a life-lasting love, respect, and understanding of music.

We offer a free trial lesson/interview for those interested in joining the studio.  
Contact us today to set up a meeting.


 Forte>piano students participated in the 2014 Lyra Summer Music Workshop in Randolph Vermont.  They studied intensely with Akiko for three weeks, taking daily priate lessons, chamber music coachings, group music classes, practicing four hours everyday, attending concerts, performing, and participating in a lot of fun Vermont activities!  Bravo to all of the students for their beautiful performances and for their huge musical growth!
