I have been taking pianolessons from Marietta since October 2014 at her studio in Watertown, MA. I am a thirty something year professional who decided to learn piano and have been looking for a piano teacher for a while until finally found Marietta on Thumbtack. Upon meeting her I realized that she is the one and my search is over.
Marietta is a highly professional piano teacher, she is patient with beginner students like me and very passionate about teaching. She has students at all ages and levels. She highly emphasizes on correct coordination and technique and make sure you have adopted the right hand skills before she moves on to the next lesson. She is very nice, supportive and approachable and you can always ask any questions you might have.
I live and work far from Watertown, but I think pianolessons with Marietta is totally worth the 15 mile commute.
Marietta's Piano Studio
Marietta is a thoughtful and observant teacher who has helped me go beyond simply playing the notes on the page but rather give an actual performance, with solid technique and musicianship. She also has a warm personality and genuinely cares about her students.
I am a graduate student in my late 20's who at one point in my life was seriously studying violin but fell off the wagon when I started college. Recently, after many years of not playing any instrument, I wanted to bring musical performance back into my life, so I started teaching myself piano. I already know how to read music so I could teach myself how to play beginner and intermediate pieces, but I felt there was something missing in the way they sounded in my inexpert hands.
After trying out lessons with a few teachers, I chose Marietta because she immediately was able to notice problems with how I positioned my body, arms, and hands, and in more abstract things like how I was interpreting dynamics and phrasing the music, and how this connected to underlying problems of technique and mechanics. This type of instruction is ideal for an intermediate student like me.
