Maria Elise T. is a native of New Orleans, Louisiana. She completed her Bachelor of Music degree while on music scholarship at Baylor University, and received a Master of Music in Vocal Performance at Louisiana State University, also with the reward of a music scholarship. While at Baylor, she studied with renowned voice teacher and pedagogue Dr. John Van Cura. She learned much of her teaching style during her time spent with Dr. Van Cura. She teaches a very thorough base for singing incorporating efficient, healthy breathing and posture. Maria uses her artistry and creativity to cater to the specific needs and learning specifications of each student, vocalists and pianists alike.
Maria spent 2 consecutive summers with Des Moines Metro Opera. She has performed many roles, most recently the Miss Dara with the Ninth Ward Opera. She has also performed Mimi in La Boheme, the title role in Vanessa, La Contessa in Le Nozze di Figaro, and the title roles in both Floyd’s Susannah and Puccini’s Suor Angelica.
Maria won 2nd Place at the Gulf Coast Regional Metropolitan Opera National Council Auditions in January 2010. Called by critics a “thoughtful, powerful and thrilling” singer, she has been awarded prizes in other competitions, including the Lois Alba Competition, NATS, Entergy Young Texas Artists’ Music Competition and Festival Note d’estate a Campolieto.

Music has been a part of my life since I was a child. I started singing in choirs around 7, and started piano lessons at 8. I am a graduate of Loyola University New Orleans with a Bachelors of Music Education, and am currently pursuing my masters degree in vocal performance there. I also am a soloist at Trinity Episcopal Church, and am a member of the New Orleans Opera Chorus. This past July, I was a resident artist at the International Performing Arts Institute in Kiefersfelden, Germany.
I love music, and I love teaching! I've been studying music since I was a child, and want to give as many people as possible the chance to experience the joy and fulfillment that comes from making music. Whatever your musical goals are--whether you want to sing or play for recitals, competitions, your friends and family, or just yourself--I can help you achieve them. Whether you're interested in classical, Broadway, sacred, or popular music, I'm willing to help you learn more. I am warm and welcoming, and believe that a relaxed student is a happy student, and happy students learn more.

When it comes to music, for me, self expression is most important. Music communicates more than words alone.
I've studied with the great musical families of New Orleans, where I was born and raised. I've also had the good fortune of crossing paths with many other greats outside of the city; Jordan family, Marsalis family, Baptiste Family, Chatters family, Clyde Kerr Jr., Donald Byrd, Frank Mantooth, Bob Shepard, Curtis Fuller, Steven Dankner, Lorraine Alfaro, Moses Hogan, Raymond Miles, Veronica Dorsey, and many others.
As a child I began the study of piano at the age of 3. I studied classical traditionally and blues by ear. I began a formal study of Jazz in the 5th grade. At age 12, I began to perform professionally and still do presently. By age 15, I was directing at various churches and ensembles to accompany musical theater productions.
To date, I've toured the east and west coast of the U.S., 18 cities between Spain, Germany and Russia. I am a performer/song writer/recording artist/director/instructor. I love each aspect but must say I am quite fond of teaching. The greatest reward is sharing the magic that music has been in my life.

I hold a Master's in Voice Performance degree from University of New Orleans and Bachelor of Science degree in Voice Performance from State Music Academy, Sofia, Bulgaria.
In 2001, I toured with International European Opera Company which performed numerous times in Denmark, France, Italy and USA.
I currently perform and teach in the New Orleans area and love to share my knowledge and experience with my students. There is so much more to performance then just beautiful vocalizing.....

Ready to start learning with a private teacher is passionate about helping you achieve your goals?
Whether you are searching for a teacher of children or adults, I stand at-the-ready.
My chosen career is PRIVATE musical instruction. While I can work in the classroom, my joy lies in helping individuals unlock their musical potential. In my studio you will be warmly received, listened to, and assessed (kindly) in order for me to learn how you learn best. Once I know what you know, and how you learn, I will devise a plan to help you learn what you want and need to know.
I specialize in teaching children (as young as 5). My studio is extremely child friendly. However, learners of all ages are welcome
My degree, from Otterbein College, is in music education. I am well-versed in various schools of vocal and piano pedagogy, and I put my knowledge of various pedagogical techniques to use. I draw from a wealth of knowledge and experience in order to help you learn.
I am no stranger to private lessons. I have taught privately for over 15 years. This is what I do (not a side gig to help ends meet). Your musical learning is not an afterthought to me, squeezed into a busy schedule. Your ARE my job, and I take my job seriously.
A typical lesson consists of 30 mins (though longer lesson times are available) For young learners, 30 minutes is plenty. Students will do a lot a playing, clapping and, often, moving, in my studio in order to untangle technically difficult passages. I am an excellent songwriter and arranger, and you will learn how to become comfortable approaching music learning from many angles. (Sometimes we will focus more on music reading, sometimes more on arranging or writing)
Most of all, you will ENJOY your lessons. I have won over even the most unmotivated students (I have my ways).
I am currently scheduling for the month of January onward, and truly welcome and value the opportunity to coach you.
AREAS OF INSTRUCTION:
Composition (piano instrumental or songs)
"Steven is very professional and extremely helpful. He always has a smile on and is serious about helping you phrase the music. I would highly recommend him to anyone."
"It's been really exciting so far! Jordan has been so helpful, so knowledgeable. I could not have found a better instructor and I'm getting better and better every day."
"My daughter's wedding was weeks away and I had never been able to dance a step. With Jenny's help, I came further than ever before in such short time in any subject."
