Maria was very professional, knowledgeable, and great engaging my two daughters 6 and 4. They are both excited about their next lesson.Jan 6, 2019Verified
Ms. Maria is a fantastic teacher. I enjoy my piano lessons and always look forward to them.Feb 1, 2020
Maria is the best possible teacher for any student of the piano. She is steeped in the classical, European tradition, she holds a Phd in piano (!) and she is a dedicated teacher. She has worked miracles with my middle school aged granddaughter. I would recommend her to anyone.Jul 8, 2018
Im 19 and a music student at UT. I am taking piano lessons with Maria and am amazed by her vast knowledge of various styles and eras of music and her ability to give me practical tools to perform pieces with accuracy and beauty. She always has something insightful to say to guide me in my musical development.Jun 25, 2018
Took Maria's classes couple of years back as a hobby and for distraction from my office job. Didn't have any prior experience with a piano, so I really appreciated Maria's patience with me. Maria has a great personality and at her classes she's engaging and respectful. It was a lot of fun!Jun 24, 2018
