Time Out says

If you've always wanted to play your favorite songs on the piano, but have little or no training in music theory, then fear not: Chris Swan is at hand. You might not be aware that there are techniques you can learn (used by professionals!) that allow you to learn songs quickly by ear—and that's exactly what Chris can teach you. Either in virtual classes or in-person lessons in Manhattan*, you can learn to play the piano by ear, get lessons in beat production, studio recording, songwriting, reading chord charts... the list goes on. You can see the full suite of offerings here. Prices start from $200 for 30 minutes online or at Chris’ studio.

Get started now!

Group classes now offered starting in April! Learn how to play the music you love in a group setting. It's a great way to learn alongside others who love music just like you do while not breaking the bank!


Hi there! My name is Chris. I teach music to people just like you and I help people achieve their musical dreams!

I teach many things when it comes to music, but mainly I teach piano and voice.

I teach how to play piano by ear by teaching the system that professional musicians use to learn songs quickly. You can be one of those people who hears a song on the radio once and then can sit down and play it instantly. It is not a magic trick. It is a system that you can learn.

I also teach singing and rapping lessons where I help my students improve their technique, build their confidence, and ultimately teach them how to build a career in music.

This is more than just lessons. This is a mentorship with a professional musician that can take your skills to the next level. Whether you are a total beginner or a seasoned pro, we will set clear goals and get to work on accomplishing them together!

Lessons are done online or in-person at my studio in the Upper East Side of Manhattan and are for ALL AGES and ALL SKILL LEVELS. These are weekly, private lessons but I also offer group classes so be sure to ask me about those!

I can't wait to meet you and help you make all your musical dreams come true!
