Grant Piano Studio
About this pro
Maria's passion for music is very apparent every single week that we show up for lessons. I've been so fortunate to watch my daughter go from a little girl taking lessons to a young adult continually working on her passion. The lessons now are a true collaboration between teacher and student where ideas are exchanged and a deeper thought goes into conveying the artistic meaning of the song. Music has become my child's passion, largely due to Maria's guidance and compassion. I'm so grateful we found Maria to pass on this beautiful gift.Jan 31, 2015
Maria Grant's success in teaching is her ability to look at the individuality of each student and the keen sense to adjust her teaching style to fit their needs. She's willing to go the extra mile and look for new ways to continually motivate and challenge her students to want to do their best. She's passionate about her love of music and what greater gift could she offer than to pass that on to her students. Maria teaches both the young and the not so young. As a 'not so young' student, she taught me to focus more on the purpose of being a musician and less on the performance. I am so grateful for her as my teacher and mentor.Jan 21, 2015
