"A superior pianistic talent"... N.Y. Times
Also many raves from 7-year olds.


I have had a lifelong passion for helping people at all levels to enjoy the pursuit of their musical potential, with a special interest in working with young students.

It has been my great pleasure over many years to fine-tune effective methods of helping young children (from age 6), high school students, adult returnees, teachers, and professional pianists. My teaching practice is remarkably varied and encompasses beginners (of any age!) through performers of advanced repertoire; of course, I can also help with preparation for NYSSMA, competitions, and college auditions, and provide coaching for accompaniments and chamber music. Friendly, clear, knowledgeable, structured lessons are constructively geared to each individual's musical personality.

In addition to my extensive teaching schedule at my home in Centerport (near Huntington), I am a faculty member at the Nassau BOCES Cultural Arts Center, Long Island's unique high school for the arts, where my text Introduction to Four-Part Harmony is used for my classes.

Previously, I taught for thirteen years in the music department at Molloy College, and gave courses for the general public through the Touro College Post-Graduate Continuing Education Program.

Strictly classical music (no keyboards, please).


LAWRENCE SCHUBERT has received outstanding critical acclaim for his four major New York recitals at Town Hall and the Weill Recital Hall at Carnegie Hall. The New York Times has praised Mr. Schubert as "a superior pianistic talent" and "a patrician musical intellect". He has performed in eight states for concert halls, colleges, museums, libraries, and radio broadcasts. Mr. Schubert has been heard as recitalist in London, at both Wigmore Hall and the Purcell Room and has performed as soloist with the South Carolina Philharmonic and the Orquesta Sinfonica de Maracaibo (in Venezuela).

Here on Long Island, Mr. Schubert has given more than 125 solo recitals, including a program for the Hofstra University International Series. He has also enjoyed playing in unconventional venues, such as private homes, public schools, piano stores (10 recitals), and the Vanderbilt Museum Planetarium (12 recitals with commentary and visual projections). In one season, a four-recital series included the four Scherzi, four Ballades, and twelve Nocturnes of Chopin along with the three sonatas of Hindemith and other miscellaneous works. He is one of few pianists to have performed an all-Hindemith recital.

Mr. Schubert's CD of solo works by the Hungarian virtuoso pianist-composer Ernö Dohnányi was released internationally on the Naxos label in 2003. The American Record Guide "warmly recommended" the recording and praised Mr. Schubert as "an eloquent exponent of this literature".

A problem with his hands led Mr. Schubert to retire from concertizing in June of 1997, but he continues to pursue his lifelong passion for excellence in music education.
