Hi, I'm a (somewhat) experienced piano/synthesizer player interested in taking lessons in New York City. I took about 4 years of classical training in piano, violin, and voice when I was in high school, but I'm looking to grow my skillset as a musician. I'm looking for a piano teacher in Manhattan or Brooklyn who would be comfortable with teaching synth lessons. Can anyone recommend a good piano (or synth) teacher in NYC?
NYC piano moving recommendations [more inside]
I am moving from Brooklyn, NY to Providence, RI next month. I have a full-size upright piano which needs to be moved. The problem is, my dream apartment in Providence is on the second floor and so the piano will either need 4-5 movers or a crane (as per a quote) because of the winding stairs. Piano movers have given me crazy expensive quotes (around $2000) which I cannot afford. I do have a quote for about $500 from local movers to unload the piano into the apartment from a truck, probably less if they can bring it up the stairs (that's with a crane). Which of the following options would you choose, or do you have another solution entirely? Any piano mover recommendations for NYC-Providence accepted! [more inside]

Where to play piano for free in NYC just once? A out-of-town friend wants to play piano in NYC: are there public spaces with pianos? A way to play at a church? (And note: I just mean play for playing sake, not play for an audience.)
