About Maria
MISSION STATEMENT:

The mission of my studio is to create well-rounded, educated musicians who will always have a lifelong passion for the art no matter their long-term goals. I strive for my students to be:

(1) Lifelong learners who develop successful learning habits.
(2) Creative and critical thinkers who will become effective communicators.
(3) Responsible and respectful members of society who respect other cultures.
(4) Able to set short-term and long-term goals and be able to see them through to their success.

TEACHING PHILOSOPHY:

It is of the utmost importance that my students are well-educated in their chosen instrument; they must know and understand music and music-making. Students who can play are a dime a dozen, but students who understand the music they are playing are often hard to find. I teach students to kno
w music thoroughly, not just to “play.” I desire my students to comprehend elements of the score, to use their bodies effectively to make good sound, and to interpret music creatively and according to historical performance practices across all genres of music. Thus, I give students a purposeful education in technique, quality literature, performance and artistry, music theory, and music history.

Although students differ in ability and development, I maintain high expectations for our students. I expect attention and respect in lessons, faithful and diligent practice, careful adherence to instructions, and an “I’ll-do-my-best” attitude. If students regularly meet these expectations, then they will excel to the level that they are able. It is my joy to help students master their music, to do the best they can, and to strive for and achieve excellence.

Lastly, I want students to enjoy and appreciate their instrument, music, and music-making; and I know as as a teacher, I am very influential in making this happen. Students develop enjoyment of music by understanding music, experiencing success in music, being exposed to good and varied genres of music, and receiving instruction from a teacher who is enthusiastic and encouraging. It is my goal to provide all of these opportunities for students, and as a result their lives will be enriched as they enjoy their instrument.

Great teacher. Much better than my theory teachers at Kennesaw State. If it wasn't for Maria I would have never gotten an A or even passed Music Theory or Aural Skills. I plan to start working with her in the fall to help me test out of Group Piano.

Our child has done so well with Ms. Maria. Lauren has just completed Level 5 of the ABRSM exams this past spring and did fantastic. This is our 5th year with Ms. Maria and we know we made the right choice by switching studios. Lauren is happy and progressing much farther than others in her previous studio. Highly recommend.

About Justice
Hi, I am Justice
I'm a director and music producer with approximately 20 years in the music industry.
As the son of a preacher, I began music by toying with the musical instruments in my home, which transpired me to play for my father's church at the age of 14.
After 8 years of music, I became a member of various musical groups in Ghana/West Africa, and later participated in European tours with famous artists and other European groups. Living in Germany for 15 years, I studied music theory, which tremendously enhanced and polished my musical expertise.
I have become a passionate and talented music teacher, with a very unique and effective style of teaching.
Today, I teach all ages with the mission to inspire and bring out the music in them.
My teaching philosophy is based on my belief that learning is fun!
Through practice and help
ful instruction, I will work with you to achieve your goals in a relaxed, and encouraging environment with positivity and praise.

Justice was the perfect piano instructor for me. I wanted to learn one specific song to play and sing as a proposal to my girlfriend. Justice helped me learn it in only 5 lessons, even though I had never played piano previously! He was skillful, encouraging, and fun! Justice made the most of each lesson to ensure that we met my goal. The engagement turned out beautifully; 'she said yes'! And my fiancé was quite surprised that I could play piano. Thanks Justice!!

About Bethany
I am a graduate of Piedmont College, graduating Magna Cum Laude with a Bachelors in Church Music and a Masters of Arts in Music Education. I majored in voice and minored in piano, studying voice with Barbara Steinhaus. I have taught both in the classroom and privately in the metro Atlanta area for 10 years.

While pursuing my degrees, I accompanied various ensembles and students at Piedmont and was a member of the elite 9-member a cappella group, Cantabile. I am currently a professional singer and pianist in the Atlanta area, singing and playing various genres including classical, worship, pop, and jazz.

I teach various genres of music—everything from classical to popular music. I believe that teaching multiple genres enables students to become well-rounded musicians and learn to express themselves in a variety of ways. I believe tha
t aural skills and the ability to read music help singers and instrumentalists alike to be the best musicians they can be.

*If you don't see your available time slot, just let me know and I'll see what I can do to accommodate your schedule!

About Cassidy
As a professional violinist graduated from the University of Michigan, I am dedicated to making music of all forms come to life—and to sharing my passion for music, art, and the world around with as many people as possible. Having earned BMs in both Violin Performance and Music History, I believe that a holistic approach to playing the violin is crucial, and I am passionate about teaching individuals of all ages the craft of the violin while exploring the theory and history that make our art so captivating.

My own musical interests center around new music (classical works being written today) and music from the Renaissance and late Medieval time periods; the fields are more similar than one might think! I currently perform with a specialized new-music quartet and several other ensembles, working extensively with contemporary student co
mposers and aiming to share their work throughout the Ann Arbor community.

Cassidy Goldblatt is a very bright and enthusiastic teacher who offers tremendous insight into creatively effective ways of playing the violin. When I recently performed in front of her as practice for my jury, I found that her most stressed advice (for me) was to focus on elements concerning the mind, and opening up the body: things that I never considered speculating into in my past ten years of playing violin. Her specific advice turned out to be extremely helpful when playing under high stress, and I not only regret not finding her sooner, but I once again commend Cassidy on her imaginative insight and never-ending ideas on technique and musicality. Cassidy's constantly supportive and graceful demeanor were key to creating a meaningful collaboration in our time together, and would only help but inspire passion for music in her future students.

My most practice instruments are the clarinet, the bassoon, the oboe, the tenor saxophone, the cello. I am a highly experienced an educated music theory teacher I've been tutoring high school and middle school students since 2014.

I've been tutoring academia since 2013 I am in the top 5% of my class at my current School and I would like to help everyone with their academic troubles.

About Cierra
I am a pianist, guitarist, ukulelist, and vocalist with a BA in music composition from Clark Atlanta University. I have participated in several jazz bands, including The Raelettes. I have also had the time of my life touring the country with the Clark Atlanta Philharmonic Society. I have now had the pleasure of teaching fresh out of college and have been doing so for three years now! It has become one of my greatest passions!

My students will focus heavily on building a solid foundation, as that is the beginning to anything that is great and that will last, right?! My piano students are usually playing songs within the first 2-3 weeks of lessons! We focus on strengthening sight reading and technique, so we can bring it to EVERY piece of music!

As a guitar teacher, one of my main focuses with my students is muscle memory and SCALES! If
you want to be able to solo along with your favorite lead guitarist, it would help to know what key they are playing, right? I am here to help you identify different positions and scales along the fretboard to get you playing that a lot sooner!

My ukulele students are quite unique, as so the ukulele! If you have taken up guitar at anytime, ukulele will be such a breeze for you! But even if you have not, it is one of the 'easier' stringed instruments to learn. I focus heavily on practicing individual note reading, scales, and of course, different strumming techniques for this instrument. This instrument is all about the strum!

I was first a vocal major in college before switching to music composition. My vocal students will see improvement in their breathing within the first two weeks of lessons. Once we understand the breathe, we will delve deeper into strengthening that breath in the core so that we produce a clear, healthy and melodious tone!

Music is first about passion. Then, it is about the doing, but also keeping the passion. And I think you're ready! Send me a message, and let's get started!
