Introduction: ***Please read*** ***All lessons are conducted virtually. Thank you!*** ~~~~~ I'm a classically trained piano teacher with 13 years’ experience. My lessons are warm, upbeat, and filled with a balance of all the skills needed to jumpstart both classical music and contemporary styles as well! As a homeschool graduate, I began college early at age 15 for music theory and performance. I've taught at the Music Academy of Acadiana (in 2014, the year they were voted #1 music academy in the USA out of a pool of 75+ schools), as well as at schools in Austin TX (the "live music capitol") and privately. I am currently pursuing a teaching certification from the Royal Conservatory of Music, where some of my students are preparing to take exams. I favor the Piano Safari method, which is unique in that it doesn’t merely teach music reading through the medium of the piano - it forms well-rounded musicians who not only read extremely well, but also have excellent musicality and technique. My students also gain a deep understanding of theory and harmony through studying contemporary music! All my lessons are online, via video chat and digital lesson materials, and my students love the convenience of not leaving home! I use a lesson-specific video chat platform, which has excellent audio capabilities, and I utilize a three-camera setup so my students always have an excellent view of my hands. Online lessons are all I’ve done for years, so I know how to give students the best possible experience. I would love the opportunity to contribute to your student’s musical growth! Feel free to contact me no-pressure with any questions. :)

I cannot say enough wonderful things about Maya. I am an adult beginner and she has a magical way of making piano fun and engaging. What is super special about her is that she meets you where YOU are and then helps you grow. She is enthusiastic and approaches piano instruction in a well-rounded way. I have had a few teachers and she is by far the best!. I would give her many more stars if I could.

In a short period of time i have learned so much from Maya. She’s very nice and knowledgeable. I play chords at the church but i dont know how to read sheet musics completely. She explains things very well and she will work with your schedule to make it happen. Overall she’s 10/10 piano teacher with lots and lots of experience and techniques to share so you can learn faster and effectively. I can now read music sheets and a lot of people at the church noticed some big differences before and after learning piano with Maya

Details: 26 - 44 years old • No, the student cannot read music • No formal training; some self-taught experience • Classical • Yes, the student has a piano • 45 minutes • Remotely (phone or internet)

Piano lessons with Maya are the best! She’s delightful to work with, takes her students far when they’ve struggled with other instructors, and she keeps it fun while they’re learning more than ever … and her students have the best technique at every recital! She seems to have a talent for figuring out what her students need and want so they stay interested long-term, which has allowed development beyond expectations!

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    Tuition is a flat monthly rate which reserves an ongoing weekly lesson time. There is no extra charge for a fifth calendar week. The fee structure can be viewed like a gym membership; a flat rate that gives you studio access, plus perks like studio licensed sheet music, handy learning app memberships, and more! Your main lesson book is an extra charge, but most supplementary sheet music is included in studio membership, and is emailed to you at no extra cost.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    I try to put new students at ease, and gently assess current knowledge without making them feel like it’s an examination! Of course I also make sure they learn something new to practice. In an online-only studio, the first lesson typically also involves assisting with student-side setup of device and camera angle. This is resolved within 1-2 lessons and things typically go smoothly after that!

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    Private instrument study, private theory study, and college courses in the same. I graduated with a bachelors degree in a different area, but I continue to actively study a variety of professional development material. I have been teaching piano since I was 15, and professionally since age 18, when I joined the staff at the Music Academy of Acadiana. I have 13 years’ experience, including 3 years’ experience teaching almost exclusively online. I’m also pursuing teacher certifications through the Royal Conservatory of Music, and I study privately with Géza Kulhay, who performs with the symphony in Budapest.
