Sorry this pro can’t do your job, but we know other pros who can.
Introduction: I play the piano since I was 3 years old. I studied in Barcelona and Saint Petersburg. Now I play concerts around the world as a soloist and with my husband who is organist. I've been teaching piano lessons and Music history for 10 years in Barcelona Music Schools, High Schools and also private lessons. Some of my students won national competitions and they are performing in different countries. Others just enjoy sitting at the piano, being able to play a relaxing melody and keep their joy of music alive. I’ve been living 2 years in Carmel, IN where I did Piano tutorings. Now I’ve just moved to San Diego with my husband who is the civic organist of Balboa Park. You’ll find more information in my website: mariateresastudio.com One of my passions is making music and the other one is teaching. I love to help students to get their own goals and to improve their knowledge. I've been teaching for 10 years and I think that teachers should be guides and mentors for students, providing them with a caring, inspirational, challenging, and secure environment where ideas can be shared and respected. Students have to be encouraged to discover their strengths, passion, and purpose so they can reach their full potential. That's why I enjoy teaching all kinds of students. Kids whose parents just want to introduce them to the music world and have fun while learning the instrument. Young musicians who want to develop their talent and professionalism. And also adults who want to sit at the piano, be able to play a relaxing melody and keep their joy of music alive.

Our 8-year old daughter, Sonia, had the privilege and pleasure of studying piano with Maria for the past six months. This was Sonia's first experience with learning a musical instrument. Maria inspired her to love playing the piano and Sonia looked forward to learning from her each week. Maria is an absolute professional. She has an excellent pedigree in terms of her own training and she is a professional concert pianist in addition to being an outstanding teacher. She inspires her students and is wonderful with children. My daughter was so excited to learn from Maria and Maria's enthusiasm for music and her students' progress clearly rubs off in a positive way on her students. Maria works hard to teach her students the fundamentals of piano but also encourages them to feel and enjoy the music on an emotional level. Maria is warm, patient, supportive, positive and very easily establishes a strong and lasting rapport with her students. Her excitement for the piano is infectious! Maria was present and on time for every single lesson and was very good about communicating with us throughout our time with her. We will miss her dearly when she moves to California in a few weeks, and both my daughter and I offer our highest recommendation of Maria. Her future students would be very lucky to learn from her.

She understood my weaknesses as a musician and was able to teach in such a way so the focus was on strengthening those weaknesses. She also kept the repertoire fun and fresh and was understanding and flexible when it came to scheduling. I really enjoyed her as a teacher!

FAQs

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

    If you pay monthly or you ask for 2 or more lessons per week, you get discounts.

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

    I’ve been playing the piano since I was 3 years old. I was educated with Russian piano technic at the age of 15 with prestigious professors from rimsky-Korsakov Conservatory in San Petersbourg and Julliard School. I won several International piano competitions and I played around the world as a soloist and with my husband. Right now I split my life between regular concerts and teaching.

  • How did you get started doing this type of work?

    Music and teaching are my two passions, so when I finished my master in music education I started teaching in Music Schools in Barcelona and then, after several years, I opened my own studio.
