Lesson Details


Levels Taught:
Beginner, Intermediate
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.

Teaching since:
January 2009

Maureen has been teaching private voice and piano lessons since 2009, and currently runs her own studio, as well as traveling to students' homes to teach lessons. She teaches anyone with an interest and willingness to learn, regardless of experience level.

Maureen received her Master of Music from the University of Maryland 2017 with an emphasis in Opera Performance. Her teaching style is tailored for each individual student, in that what works for one student won't necessarily work for the next (particularly in regards to singers), and strives towards finding the optimal method that encourages and helps students to 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.

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.

She quickly was able to point out ways I could fix problems that I have been having for quite some time. She was very fun to work with and I would definitely recommend for students of all ages!

My son was shy at first but she really connected with him and I think he enjoyed it!

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!
