I have been teaching piano lessons for several years now, to students ranging from 4 to 50 years of age. In the first lesson, students can expect to learn the musical alphabet, location of middle C, the correct posture and hand position, as well as some simple musical exercises depending upon the student's age and ability. My goal in teaching is to help people gain an understanding and appreciation of the piano, as well as the workings of music as a whole. While my background is in classical piano, I enjoy working with students on any style of music that utilizes sheet music.

A full-time operatic performer and music educator, Maureen Kelly has been teaching voice and piano lessons since 2009. She currently runs her own private studio, in addition to traveling to students' homes to teach lessons. She happily teaches anyone who has an interest and willingness to learn, regardless of experience.

Ms. Kelly received a Master of Music from the University of Maryland in 2017 with an emphasis in Opera Performance. In teaching, her goal is to find the optimal method for each individual student that will encourage them to grow and improve. She firmly believes that anyone who is willing to dedicate the time and effort to learning a new instrument is capable of doing so, and looks forward to helping new students achieve their goals.

Lessons are scheduled to best accommodate the student's schedule, and as such can be at a regular day/time or determined on a weekly basis. Please be aware that Ms. Kelly is an opera singer who periodically travels for performances. As such, she may need to reschedule lessons from time to time, but will always give as much advance notice as possible.

Maureen is a great teacher! She's super patient and calmly lets you know if you mess something up. She lets you work it out slowly if you need to! I've never met any teacher like her!

Very lovely lady and very patient with me. I’m 64 years young and i’m trying to recapture those lessons I took in my teens.

I started off as an absolute beginner at singing and made a lot progress under Maureen's guidance. She is a very patient and knowledgeable teacher who prioritized proper support and healthy technique. I would strongly recommend taking lessons with her to anyone seeking to improve their singing.

Maureen is a fantastic teacher for anyone looking to improve their singing skills. I came in with no background in music, and she was very capable in assessing my level and getting me started on exercises and practices to improve my vocal control, posture, and more. She is very friendly and patient, and is always excited to practice and improve. I would definitely recommend Maureen for beginners and beyond who are looking to improve their singing.

She is very kind. Gives reinforcement to the kids during the lesson. As far as we are concerned, she is our piano teacher.

Maureen helped my daughter progress with the first lesson. We specified that she needed help with sight reading and the lesson consisted of exactly that. She was very thorough--kept the lesson moving but slowed down to my daughter's speed when necessary. Great first lesson.

Maureen was fantastic!
She has immediately recognized by weak spots and put me to work on improving. She gave me a lot of Vocal warm ups to help where I'm not confident in, and never pushed me to the point of Vocal hurt. I absolutely loved working with her. She is very knowledgeable about the voice and knows her music and breaking things down!
