Need two-piano practice room in NYC
« on: December 11, 2015, 02:30:41 PM »
I'm planning to sign up for a piano ensemble course focusing on the two-piano repertoire, offered by the adult division of the Mannes School in Manhattan (part of the New School).

To my surprise, I discovered that their practice rooms are not available for rental by continuing education students. So I have no place to practice.  (It's like a tennis school which offers only classroom instruction.)

Does anyone know where I can find a practice room with two decent pianos in Manhattan?

Thanks for any suggestions.

see about signing up for a course with a CC as well, then you get access to the facilities there. or you may be able to pay just the course audit and facilities fee. Call them and see . usually the CC are pretty reasonable
