I've been teaching cello for 30 years and my students have gone on to play with different ensembles like symphony orchestras. Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to play simple songs by reading and by ear and as time goes on you'll be able to play more complex repertoire. I specialize in classical, style but I can teach you different kinds of styles, typically use Kummer method and Suzuki repertoire but I use a variety of method and books. I have the following tools available for your lessons: cello, computer program, sound system, Tuner and Metronome . I love working with students of all ages and experience levels and I can't wait to meet you!

Maria is wonderful. I am an adult first-time learner, and I couldn't imagine a better teacher. Maria is patient and funny but also extremely organized and attentive to accuracy. The beauty of her own cello playing stuns me every time. I found her by accident, and feel extremely lucky. Highly recommended.

Maria is so helpful, got down to business and now I have plenty to practice before my next lesson. I am grateful she feels comfortable having me in her home studio for instruction. I would find ZOOM meetings quite difficult since I am truly a beginner.
Thank you, Maria!

My goal with each and every student is to make sure that you will be getting a healthy diet of music theory, guitar technique, and genre awareness that is coupled with a technology to make lessons easier to digest.

My custom lesson plans cater to anyone interested in:
- Composition
- Learning and Playing Songs by Ear
- Reading Standard Nomenclature including tabs and sheet music
- Modern Guitar technique, like tapping, sweeping and legato
- Learning to Play WHILE you Sing
- Improvisation
- Technology and its utilization

Perks working with me:
- 24 hour support on questions pertaining to guitar, lessons and gear.
- Never forget to practice! I require my students to send weekly videos of their progress before lessons begin.
- Weekly digest of guitar-centric music
- Learn some of the technology aspects of playing guitar
- Learn what its like to play for work

Shoot me a message to see if we're a good match!

And his music tastes are great! :)

Teaching all levels, from beginning through advanced. I recommend adults to take one-hour lessons every other week. Children do better with half hour lessons every week. Ask about renting a harp!

I'm a believer that almost anyone can learn to play music well, and guitar is no exception. It's something which seems difficult at first, but has a series of specific steps (like any instrument) which take the mystery out of it, and get you playing in no time! I love seeing students improve on this instrument and seeing how much fun they have once they begin to play songs they love.
