· · Great teacher! My son and daughter both enjoy her teaching style. Some technical book work balanced with fun current music they enjoy. Very creative teacher. Keeps it fun while learning! Great for guitar or drums.
· Bass Guitar · In studio She was a fantastic bass teacher who really help me bring my talent to the next level, because of her I am now one of the best bass players in both my school and my church, and I am planning on getting a minor degree in music thanks to her.
· Guitar · In home Maria is always upbeat and knows exactly what you require to move your guitar playing forward. The lessons are always interesting and challenging and build on your last lesson. If there is a passage that is too difficult, she will break in down to understandable pieces. I would recommend Maria to anyone who has the desire to move their playing forward.
